Crevier Classic Cars is pleased to offer this 1956 GMC 100 DeLuxe Pick-up. 1956 incorporated a year of work that made significant changes to the GMC truck brand, owned by General Motors. Looking for an increase in market share, GMC added more strength to the engine, redesigned the axles and transmission, and added a 12-volt electrical system for better lighting to attract customers. This particular example is a two owner truck from new. The current owner acquired the truck and commissioned a 100 point type frame off restoration by Custom Automotive Restoration in Portland, OR. The truck was the perfect candidate for restoration and nearly all parts are either restored originals or NOS components supplied by top GMC professionals such as GMC Dave. From the show quality chrome, to the exemplary fit and finish of the laser straight body, the outstanding interior to the exquisitely refinished bed, this GMC 100 must quite possibly be considered the finest in the country. Every nut and bolt was attended to with no expense spared. The 316ci V8 is a strong performer and the 4 speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission shifts smoothly. The heavy duty power drum brakes easily handle this GMC 100 DeLuxe. This truck fits perfectly on a show field at the concours, on the open road, or tucked away in a collection of similar show quality vehicles. The interesting color combination of Aspen Green and Delta Green is said to be the original for the truck and is simply stunning.
