For sale in our Detroit showroom is this 1953GMC Â½ ton Pickup. While it looks bone stock on the outside, there are plenty of new and rebuilt parts lurking beneath the original exterior to make this truck a reliable cruiser. Under the hood, youâ??ll find the original numbers matching 228 inline-6 that is running like a top. This GMC sports a brand new custom built 5-speed manual T% transmission installed with a brand new custom built drive shaft making this classic truck a very usable vehicle. This truck is especially cool in the fact that most of the trucks youâ??ll find today are half-tons with short beds that have been completely restored and modified. With original and untouched vehicles becoming increasingly harder to find, this GMC 152, or 1/2-ton truck is a true gem! While the heavy-duty trucks are a bit more rare, this particular truck sports a spacious stake style flat bed, and since no vintage truck would be complete without a wood-lined bed, this cool Chevy is equipped with a yellow-pine floor, side rails, and matching running boards. With a durable finish covering the wood, you can throw a cooler and some lawn chairs back there, cruise on over to your local hot rod show, and have a blast with your family and friends! Originally built as a no-frills workhorse that helped build America, this truck has everything you need and nothing you donâ??t, with the following options: Vinyl interior, seat belts, windshield wipers, and radial tires.
