Stk. 1740 1969 GMC 1500 Pickup
General Motors was founded by William C. Durant on September 16, 1908, as a holding company for Buick. In1909, GM purchased the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company, forming the basis of the General Motors Truck Company from which the "GMC Truck" brand name was derived. The Reliance Motor Car Company (another independent manufacturer) was also purchased that same year by GM. Rapid and Reliance were merged in 1911 and in 1912 the marquee "GMC Truck" first appeared on vehicles exhibited at the New York International Auto Show. The "C" Series pick-up was first introduced in 1960 and continued on until 1998. Our 1969 C1500 ton offers a rather interesting take on what a pick-up can be. Take that Jet Black and Sunkist Orange two-tone paint scheme for example. And that fine silver stripe that serves as a subtle break between upper and lower body color. You will also find some additional custom touches in the form of a distinctive billet grille, color-keyed 15" Buick Road Master alloy wheels, Slimline fiberglass tonneau, and a louvered tailgate and lower bumper valance. Even the louvers have their own orange pinstripes that contrast nicely off that ten-mile deep paint job. On the interior the same attention to detail was given to the door panels as they mirror the exterior treatment. Settle into those comfy, leather, eight-way power bucket seats and you cant help but marvel at those classic white Dolphin gauges and wood steering wheel and of just how nicely they blend in. The Lokar shifter rising up from the floor is in perfect reach of your hand when you decide when its go time. And go it does; with its fuel-injected 5.7 liter V-8 under hood. Handling the shifting duties is a 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission. Power disc brakes, steering and aftermarket air also help set the stage for your driving pleasure. So if youve always admired this body style but never had the opportunity to own one, there couldnt be a better time than now to take advantage of this beauty.
