We like trucks here at Streetside Classics, and if they can run like a muscle car and still haul a load of 2x4s home from the store, well, so much the better. That''s why this 1965 GMC is so popular around here: it''s got the power where it counts, great looks, and a bed that isn''t over-dressed for its day job. Somewhat more unusual than its Chevrolet cousin, this GMC still carries the same rugged good looks that makes these trucks popular today. Finished in white, it isn''t flashy but the general purposefulness of the look has to be respected. The step-side bed makes it look sporty, not utilitarian, and thanks to a somewhat aggressive stance that''s accentuated by the forward-canted factory bodywork, this is one truck that actually looks fast. Finish work is quite good, with good gaps all around and a handsome hand-painted GMC logo on the tailgate. The front bumper offers a big grille guard that''s a period accessory, while out back a diamond-plate step bumper is a sturdy place to stand while you''re loading your gear. Inside that bed you''ll find a wood floor, which is practically mandatory on any old truck these days, but you can''t say that it doesn''t look great with just the right patina that you''re not afraid to throw some supplies in there. Functional interiors are important in vehicles designed to work for a living, but when they''re retired like this one, it''s OK to dress them up a bit. With recent gray vinyl upholstery on the factory bench seat, the interior has a softer, more inviting look than the original, and it works quite well with the white door panels and dash. The original gauges are still in the dash, with the outboard pods being used to house auxiliary instruments plus there''s a Sun tach strapped to the steering column. Vintage Air supplied one of their low-profile A/C systems so it chills the cabin effectively without changing the overall look, and a newer AM/FM/CD stereo head unit does the same thing for the entertainment. It does still have a rubber mat on the floor just for authenticity''s sake, but it''ll help if you occasionally still use this GMC as, you know, a real truck. The engine is a 350 cubic inch Chevy crate motor that was dropped between the fenders right out of the box. As a result, it''s torquey and reliable and carries an OEM look that seems to suit the big, white pickup just fine. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission handles the gear swaps and feeds a rear end lifted from a 1976 C10 pickup. In fact, that same C10 also donated its front suspension, so you now have an independent setup with power disc brakes and power steering, making this truck a pleasure on the road. Dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers cackles and snarls (but in a good way) and handsome 15-inch Rallys with 275/60/15 white-letter radials complete the sporty look. Just a clean old truck with plenty of life left in it, this 1965 GMC will still attract attention on the road without having to give up all the things that made it great in years past. Call today!
