Over $100K spent on a frame off restoration with full documentation and this truck comes from a good local friend who had nothing but the best local builders involved with this GMC. This first-series 1955 GMC 100 five-window, half-ton Pickup Restomod will evoke all of that and more. A 2012-2013 custom build, it all started with a frame by Fat-Man Fabrications in Charlotte, North Carolina. This example was originally manufactured in GM's Pontiac, Michigan factory (VIN code P). Other chassis modifications and features include - independent front suspension and power rack-and-pinion steering box from a second-generation Ford Mustang II; a Walker Radiator with condenser; a four-link rear suspension with a Panhard rod; coilovers at all four corners; 11-inch front disc and rear drum brakes from a third-generation Chevrolet Camaro; a 16-gallon fuel tank between frame rails and a cool cap in bed. Dressed in PPG Paint's Perfect Purple Metallic from Automotive Unlimited, Inc., in St. Louis, Missouri, the truck's paint and trim are in excellent order. The hood, front and rear fenders are all stock 1955 GMC panels while the grille has been re-chromed by Highline Platin, Inc. in Cuba, Missouri. There's a side-mounted spare tire and wheel on the driver's side. Out back, the cargo bed floor has been retrofitted with ash wood beams and stainless steel strips and bolts from Bruce Horkey. Tailgate graphics and pin striping come from Pfitzinger Graphics in Fenton, Missouri. The truck's head and taillights are stock, as are the sideview mirrors. The front and rear chrome bumpers are classic Chevrolet chrome. There's even an external sun visor. This truck rolls on BFGoodrich Radial T/As, size 215/70R15 in front and 255/70R15 in rear. Each tire is mounted to an American Eagle alloy wheel, 15x7 in front and 15x8 in rear. The wheels are in excellent condition while the tires are in very good order with good tread depth. Under the hood is a General Motors 350 CID crate V-8 engine that makes 330 horsepower with a billet serpentine conversion kit; Edelbrock Durashine 650 CFM carburetor and intake manifold; GM 10SI/12SI alternator; Saginaw power steering pump; Sanden 508 air-conditioning compressor; Vortec aluminum heads; High-energy electronic ignition; Sandersen headers; three-inch exhausts with Dynomax Turbo Mufflers with side exit tailpipes from Stu's Classic Car Care in Hillsboro, Missouri, and more. Backing the motor is a rebuilt 2012 GM 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission from Tosti's Transmission in Fenton, Missouri, and a Ford nine-inch rear end with a 3.00:1 differential. The truck reportedly cruises at 60 mph with the tachometer at 2,300 rpms. Driver convenience features include vintage slimline air-conditioning with AC/Heat/Defrost from Stu's Classic Car Care in Hillsboro, Missouri, power rack-and-pinion steering and power disc/drum brakes. Inside, the truck's cab has a stock 1955 instrument panel, painted to match the exterior, and it has a full array of Autometer's Old Tyme White II gauges. A chrome billet Outlaw three-spoke steering wheel is mounted on a chrome Ididit steering column with tilt and a column-mounted shifter.
