This 1960 GMC Deluxe half-ton fleetside pickup had less than 100,000 original miles before it was treated to a complete, frame-off restoration, as posted on Hemmings.
With the exhaust system alone priced at nearly $2,000 the seller states that over $40,000 was invested into the truck’s restoration that now bears a price tag of $28,500. The owner has only put 636 miles on the truck since its frame-off restoration, and has never driven it in the rain or snow.
In addition, truck is said to have several rare factory options, including chrome trim around the windows. The chrome used on the truck is said to be triple-plated, show quality chrome; in other words, the good stuff. It has the correct color combination for the year — a turquoise and white, two-tone finish.
While the original numbers-matching GMC 305A V6 is available to be purchased with the truck, the engine was replaced with a rebuilt 351C GMC V6, bored .40 over. Everything is essentially new or in new condition, and the truck has many upgraded New Old Stock components, including the rear springs, gauges, radio, some of the body panels, and more.
Our favorite touch, though, would be the interior pulled from a 1960 Chevy Impala. It goes very well with the truck, and adds to its charming character.
We wouldn’t mind cruising around in this timeless classic, though nearly $30K is definitely a good chunk of change. So, is this old-school pickup a must have, or is there a better way to spend the money? Give us your thoughts in the comment section below.
