383 Stroker V8
Stunningly shiny, a custom A/C interior, and a 415 hp stroker motor under the hood – this 1953 GMC 100 is exactly how you want a classic when you\'re looking to expertly integrate all the best upgrades.
These classic GMCs always attract attention. After all, they have the similar curves of Chevy\'s Advance Design pickups with a little bit of extra flair all its own. It also has great classic elements, like the GMC\'s unique tall grille, windshield sunshade, and real wood in the bed. And when you look at this head-on, there\'s something unmistakably cool about the distinctive trim line that runs from the tip of the hood, through the two-piece windshield, and onto the roof. But while there\'s plenty of vintage style, what really attracts you to this one are all the investments that give it a modern flair. They spent time and money giving the chrome an excellent shine just so it could match the luster of the new 18-inch REV alloys. With performance tires and a lowered suspension, it gives this former workhorse a new aggressive stance. Plus, there was an eye to making this truck extra smooth. Not only is the sheetmetal looking fantastic, but also it looks extra sleek thank to expertly deleting areas like the door handles and tailgate. And it\'s all wrapped in a smooth shade of dark red that loves to highlight this GMC\'s lines every time the sunlight finds the body.
You open the doors with a remote on the key fob, and that\'s your first clue to the modern upgrades that await inside. This is a thoughtfully uniform interior that integrates gray and cream over every inch. We especially like how the tuck and roll style insert of the seat matches the door panels. Not only is the seat covered in supple leather, but also you have the convenience of a removable cup holder center console. This is a classic with comfort in mind, and so you have well integrated upgrades like a retro-style AM/FM radio w/Bluetooth, a tilt steering column, and ice cold R134a air conditioning. The Dakota Digital VHX gauges was a $1,200 investment alone, and the upgraded info it provides is a nice hint that there\'s something special under the hood.
The engine bay has a smooth presentation with plenty of the same dark red you love on the exterior. Plus, there was a solid investment in polished components. So you\'ll love showing this one off wherever you go. When you look beyond the style, there\'s a ton of substance. This is a 383 cubic-inch Blueprint crate V8. It has all the right go-fast goodies, including a Holley 750 dual-feed four-barrel carburetor, performance intake, and headers feeding the H-pipe dual exhaust. Plus, it has the right supporting components like serpentine belts, HEI ignition, and an aluminum radiator. The motor is rated at 415 hp. While we have the dyno sheet to prove it, the terrific low rumble this makes informs everyone about the big power within. This truck has plenty of muscle, but it\'s also built to be an easy driver. That\'s why you have features like power steering, an upgraded independent front suspension, front disc brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission.
This is a fresh build with only about 3,800 miles on it, and the sale even comes with restoration photos and build receipts. This GMC is vintage, upgraded, powerful, and comfortable, so it\'s the one that can do it all. Call now!
