This 1971 GMC Jimmy 4x4 represents a rare SUV/convertible vintage done right. With proper V8 power, sleek paint, 4x4 prowess, and the appeal of a fully removable hardtop. It makes for the best of everything in one cool vintage package.
For many full-size 4x4 fans, this Jimmy is the one. The first-gen gave you a full convertible top, and the GMC version was rarer than the Chevy. So it gives this one instant respect and demand even before you check out the total package. Black paint is always great for premium distinction, but this one shows especially well with a quality respray that loves to shine. Plus, the full hardtop is done in white to give this the premium appeal of a tuxedo. The full-length rocker trim shows off the straightness of the sheet metal and it has that great classic wood-like appearance. The brightwork looks excellent on the chrome bumpers and distinct GMC grille. And the slotted-style mag wheels are a great classic way to show off the lifted stance.
While we like the look of the white hardtop, you really want to take it off to show the rare and desirable full open-air experience. It has a very stock style, but you can also tell there has been a solid investment in upholstery, door panels, gauges, and dash to keep this all looking good. There are even nice details, like the working under-dash lights, working Delco AM/FM radio, and the western-style pattern on the seats that came on the premium pickups. And while it's a true classic there are the right features to make sure you'll enjoy the drive. For example, you have R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) You also have features like front bucket seats, a center console, full gauges with a handy tach, and plenty of room for adults and their gear.
Under the hood is a stout small block V8. This 350 cubic-inch motor inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and a Weiand aluminum intake. You'll also spot newer supporting components like newer plugs, wires, hoses, and other essentials. The two-speed transfer case, tall stance, and BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/As get this ready for 4x4 duty. There's even a four-speed manual transmission with a low first gear to give you plenty of low-end torque. But more than just an off-roader, this has a broad appeal thanks to power steering, power brakes, and front discs.
Complete with owner's manual, this Jimmy offers sharp looks, GMC rarity, V8 power, 4x4 utility, and full convertible appeal. So don't miss this all-around stunner. Call today!!!
