Someone forgot to remind this 1994 GMC C1500 that it's a late-model truck. Somewhere along the way, it received a cool nose job designed to look like an Advance Design truck from the '40s. There's still V8 power and all the amenities, but this is no longer just a utilitarian hauler.
Finished in icy two-tone blue paint, this truck would ordinarily keep a low profile. However, that all changed with the addition of that custom fiberglass nose and a set of flames on the hood and fenders, all of which transform this former work truck into something special. Workmanship is quite good, with a decent shine to the finish and nice attention to detail that includes the '50s Chevrolet emblem on the tailgate (with the proper V8 'V') and a custom rear roll pan. The grille is a convincing replica of a 1948 3100, now painted gloss black and the hood is a neat piece that ties it all together. There's a spray-in bed liner so it can still work like a truck, although it doesn't look like it really ever had to. With just a bit of rake, this slick pickup will make you forget about your chores and instead encourages you to head out and have some fun.
The interior is very much standard GM pickup, but it's not like that's a bad thing. With handsome two-tone fabric on factory bucket seats, it is comfortable and aside from a split on the driver's seat, it's in good shape. Original carpets and door panels look good, there's a custom wood console between the seats, and it's loaded with options: A/C, power windows and locks, a tilt steering column, and an updated AM/FM/CD stereo system that sounds great. A full set of factory gauges are surrounded by a billet panel that gives them an entirely new look, as does the A/C panel. Tinted windows give it a sinister look and help keep it cool, although the A/C has been converted to R134a and remains extremely effective. It's still as comfortable as it ever was.
The original engine measures 350 cubic inches and remains quite stock, keeping an OEM look and feel without going crazy with the shiny stuff. Factory fuel injection means it starts easily and runs great, and you already know these are bulletproof reliable. The engine bay is extremely clean, suggesting a careful owner in a warm climate, and details like the aluminum tanks and braided hose covers add a little interest. The 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission is a great complement to the torquey V8 engine, keeping it in the sweet spot and with a recent rebuilt and a shift kit, it won't complain about the torque. The original rear end is tough enough to have some fun but has highway-friendly gears, so this remains an easy truck to drive every day. The suspension has been lowered just a little bit to give it some attitude, and the exhaust system is a great-sounding Flowmaster with twin outlets under the rear roll pan. Torque Thrust-style wheels add a vintage performance look and carry 215/70/15 front and 275/60/17 blackwall radials that fill the truck's big wheel arches perfectly.
A very neat truck with a vintage look, all the amenities, and bulletproof reliability. Yeah, it'll still haul, so put it to work every day and see how everyone else reacts. Call today!
