Stk. 2221 1968 GMC Pickp

A '60s short-bed GM pick-up with its solid undercarriage, roomy cab and plenty of space under the hood is a natural candidate for a street rod. This 1968 GMC ½ ton was fully restored and modified in 2016. Virtually every nut and bolt is new. The builder chose Cherry Red for the exterior, maintained the massive chrome front grille/bumper and deleted the rear bumper assembly entirely. The result is a great looking 'shorty' with a bed that utilizes custom oak planks for flooring. That said, this modified pick-up is all about the performance delivered from a strong, professionally built drivetrain. Power comes from a rebuilt 2004 GM 6.0L that has experienced significant upgrades. It now breathes through an Edelbrock Victor Jr. single-plane cast aluminum intake with 800cfm Holley. Fire comes from an MSD ignition. A Lunati Voodoo hydraulic roller cam (.651/.651) works new rollers and springs in GM243 aluminum heads and exhaust gases exit through tube headers into a free-flow system. Cooling is handled by an aluminum radiator, clutch fan and serpentine belt set-up. The powerplant is backed by a new Cooks 400 automatic w/3200 stall converter that drives a 12-bolt differential (3.73:1) with Moser axles. The fully detailed chassis has been upgraded with new front ball joints/bushings, power steering and power disc/drum brakes (new dual master, calipers, rotors and brake lines). Twenty-inch 'Foose' alloy wheels mount Nexen HP radials. The retro-classic cab is enhanced with a nicely reupholstered rolled and pleated black vinyl seat. Dashboard and door panels have matching vinyl accents and the custom instrument panel houses a full set of Marshall Performance gauges. A street-rod shifter, leather-wrapped wheel, Sony AM/FM/CD sound system and new carpeting complete the interior package. This custom pick-up is a real head-turner and a blast to drive. It belongs in your garage. For more information, call 800-650-1055 or visit our website at www.autobarnclassiccars.com ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
