Description:

In 1901, Max Grabowsky established a company called the "Rapid Motor Vehicle Company", which developed some of the earliest commercial trucks ever designed. In 1909, the company was purchased by General Motors to form the basis for the General Motors Truck Company, from which GMC Truck was derived.

Another independent manufacturer purchased by GM that same year was Reliance Motor Car Company. Rapid & Reliance were merged in 1911, and in 1912 the marque "GMC Truck" was first shown at the New York International Auto Show. Some 22,000 trucks were produced that year, though GMC's contribution to that total was a mere 372 units.


In 1936 GMC substantially increased its number of dealerships with the addition of well chosen sales outlets in every area they were in. For the first time GMC brought out a complete line of light duty trucks to supply the increasing demand for equipment in their capacity range.


This particular truck that you see here is a 1940 GMC Series 150 ¾ ton pick up truck. This is a fully restored truck that needs nothing to enjoy on the weekends or just around your favorite piece of property. The original 228 Cu In six cylinder has been replaced with an updated 235 Cu In six cylinder that runs great and gives you more power then the stock engine and it runs great. This truck has spent it’s entire life in the dry state of California and was brought to Illinois in 2003.


The paint on the truck is in great condition with no major imperfections to be found. There are a few scuffs to the top of the fenders from the hood coming down on it but these are not major. There are also some scratches to the front of the sun shade that were caused from the hood. Both front and rear bumpers are in good shape with no damage or major pitting showing to either. The front grill looks great and has a brilliant shine to it. The wood bed is newer and shows no rot.


Inside, the seat has been reupholstered and looks very good with no major wear. There has been an updated stereo installed that works with no problems. The door panels and dash have both been painted to match the exterior of the truck. The steering wheel is solid with no cracking. There has been an aftermarket temperature gauge installed under the dash. Lights, blinkers and horn all work with no problems.


Under the hood, the original 228 Cu In 6 cylinder has been replaced with a newer, 235 Cu In 6 cylinder. This is connected to a 4 speed manual transmission that shifts with no problems. The truck starts right up with a push of the pedal and goes down the road with no problems. I wouldn’t suggest taking cross country trips in the truck, but for around town, it’s a ton of fun. A good cruising speed for the truck is around 50 mph.


The under side is very solid with no rot that we have seen. The bed is solid and has been freshly refinished and sealed. This truck is titled as a 1945 GMC with a VIN number on the firewall of B22865981 which does match the title. This truck is a 1940 Model though and has a VIN number on the frame of AC1526057 which is correct for this period and truck. Titling will not be an issue as the title does match the VIN tag on the firewall.
