Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer one the nicest restorations we've come across. We have an eye catching 1954 GMC 250 Panel truck for sale. This Panel has undergone a full nut and bolt restoration that nearly make the vehicle a time machine. In 1954 the truck was purchased by the Ziddel family in St. Joseph, Missouri. The Panel was used for deliveries of the family store. As many years passed, the truck was replaced and parked in a barn where it sat for approximately 40 years. In 2006, there was an estate auction where it was purchased. In 2011, the long awaited truck then got a second chance. The owners noticed that the VIN ended in 1007, decoding the fact that this Panel was the seventh off the assembly line!!! It now carries the nickname, "lucky seven". Powering the Panel is the believed to be, original 248 Inline 6 cylinder engine. These engines were vastly advertised as the new thing in performance and reliability. To quote the 1954 ad, "125 horsepower with 7.5 to 1 extra-high compression using regular gasoline!" Not only is this piece of history for sale, but it makes a functional collectible item and investment piece. Because the Panel is nearly new, hop in, turn the key and show it off! You'll turn heads at car shows, the local ice cream parlor, or family gathering. To view the vehicle running and driving along with 100+ HD pictures, visit www.gatewayclassiccars.com or our Tampa showroom.
