    This knockout '53 GMC pickup truck is the perfect example for why Custom restored pickup trucks are On Fire these days!  Price tags in excess of $50,000 are not uncommon for exceptional 1950's and 1960's 'Resto Mod' GM pickups and it's easy to see why.  These old reliable workhorses were a bonafide value when they were new.  From the late 40's advanced design 3100's with their rock steady Stovebolt Sixes to the endlessly customizeable Chevy V8's in the 60's C-10's, the vintage GM trucks have become the hottest growing collector car trend of the decade.

    Turning a good old truck into a great new truck is no easy task.  The trade papers and the internet is chock full of classified ads for half-done projects.  The smart buyer is the one that skips these money pit projects and goes straight for on that's complete, because the experts that can get the job done right can make a work of art out of an old GM truck.  We're fortunate to have a truck just like this roll right into our showroom!

    Starting with a solid 1953 GMC 1/2 ton, the builder went to work on the GMC Straight Six by adding a shiny new Edelbrock Air Cleaner, a Holley 4-Barrel Carb, a Clifford Intake Manifold, Fenton Exhaust Headers, Petronix Electronic and Coil, a BBB Alternator, wired up with a tidy custom loom, and finished off with all new custom fuel and oil lines.  Stinger Sound Insulation keeps the rumble where it belongs while a pair of custom dual pipes put the exhaust in the back.

    Gorgeous silver paint was selected for the body color.  The interior is a real treat featuring custom leather seating by Grey Kaiser, Bose Stereo Sound and a Hurst floor shifter for that extra vintage touch.  The truck bed is lined with custom boards finished in bright cherry varnish.  From bumper to bumper this '53 GMC is a show on wheels.  Stop searching the barn find ads for rusty gold.  Get the truck of your dreams today!
