This is the kind of truck to get excited about. This 1971 GMC 1500 C10 pickup has a great stance, plenty of chrome, and oh yeah, a supercharged 383 stroker V8 that's putting some serious muscle on the street.
When you see the color and the good sheetmetal, your first impression of this classic truck might just be the nice guy dressed in a crisp white shirt. But then you begin to pick up on the details. The chrome grille shines a bit brighter; the lowered stance seems a bit meaner; and those low profile tires on the large 17-inch Riddler alloys are pure intimidation. This GMC has some serious presence for those who give it a second glance, and they are quite right to pay attention because there is a real beast lurking within (more on that in a moment.) But as much as this will be a great vintage performance truck, this pristine white pickup has not lost its blue-collar roots. Beneath the rear cover is a steel bed that's ready to get to work if need be, and the trailer hitch can make this the meanest machine at the boat ramp.
The enhanced attitude continues inside. Just like the exterior, the interior shines a bit brighter with added trim below the AM/FM/CD stereo and on the mirror-like glovebox door. The gray cloth bench seat is wide enough to make sure you can carry more than one extra person with you in comfort, but really, this truck was made with the driver in mind. The three-spoke wood and chrome Grant steering wheel feels great in your hands. You have a commanding view of the full gauge package, including the large central tach and airbag suspension controls below the dash. It's all there to help you recognize there's something special under the hood, even before you hear that unmistakable whine of power.
The engine bay was kept tidy so everyone could have a clear look at all the awesome hardware. That Powerdyne supercharger is like a big bright beacon calling others to take a look at this pickup. And when they get closer, they're going to see a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 that's been further enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock aluminum heads, and an MSD ignition. This is a huge power package, and it has been treated with respect since it was built around six years ago. So all the right maintenance has been performed, including a new battery, starter, fluids, pan gasket, and more in recent servicing. On the road, it's your choice to keep this one mild or wild, because the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is smooth and comfortable when you want it, and stout enough to take on the supercharged power at a moment's notice. Plus, the suspension is ready, too, with dropped spindles and springs in the front, as well as adjustable air bags on the trailing arm rear. Add in power steering and front disc brakes, and this GMC is a wild power pickup that's easy to drive like a cruiser.
If you can't decide between the ultimate muscle machine and a great vintage truck, this supercharged GMC gives you both. When something so unique is also quite affordable, you know you have to act quickly to take it home. Call now!!
