Forged in 1911 from two independent truck manufacturers, the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company and the Reliance Motor Car Company, which were acquired by GM in 1909, GMC Truck was to be GM’s commercial truck division.
GMC introduced the V8 engine as an option in 1955, and opted to use the more potent Pontiac 287 cid V8, over Chevrolet’s 265 cid V8. Most trucks, however, left the factory equipped with the smaller 6 cylinder engine, coupled with a manual transmission. Few were lucky enough to have the V8 power-plant, and fewer still packed both the V8 and the optional Hydramatic transmission.
Beautifully finished in Tatan turquoise and Bombay Ivory over a well kept turquoise and ivory interior, this 1955 GMC Pickup features: 287 cid V8, 4-speed Hydramatic transmission, power steering, panoramic rear window, new oak bed and bed rails, freshly rechromed front grill, a rust-free Nevada past, and so much more.
This distinctively styled GMC Pickup will be a joy for all to look at, but only one to own!
