Big American pickup trucks from the 50s have been red-hot in the market for a while now, and its no wonder - it was a glorious era for pickups as they morphed from strictly work trucks into everyday transportation for the masses. None represent this era any better than a 1957 GMC. This one really stands out with a vibrant red and cream paint motif, and the finishes are all expertly applied and look stunning. The consignor reports it was originally bought as a farm truck in Montana and, upon close inspection, its obvious that the restoration began with a very solid example. The panel fit is spot-on, there are very few flaws, and the shine and depth of the finish is excellent. The powder coated front bumper and matching diamond-plate rear bumper and bed steps set it off nicely. 8-ply truck tires are accented by the matching factory painted cream hubcaps. The bed of this truck is a rare 8-1/2-foot option that is also freshly restored with a lovely polished wooden floor. Power comes from a clean and nicely built 347 cubic-inch V-8, complete with GMC valve covers for a factory appearance. Mated to a four-speed manual transmission with a floor-mounted shift lever, and a newer locker rear end, its fully capable of stump-pulling torque as well as comfortable highway speeds. The new owner will enjoy all the reasons these trucks are so coveted, including powerful performance and easy drivability. Step up into the cab, and you are greeted by classic 50s all the way, with black vinyl bench seat, floor-mounted shifter, painted doors and dash, and the correct rubber floor mats. Youll be hard pressed to find anything missing in this classic interior from the day it was brand new back in Montana.

From any angle, this truck is ready for show or go, and fully capable of pulling its own weight when asked. If you are a classic GMC fan, this is a truck that bears close inspection for its fine workmanship, authentic features, and powerful performance.
