1957 GMC Panel Truck1957 GMC Panel Truck

Very unusual – V8 automatic, PS, PB, tinted glass, radio, heat, spotlights, sun visor, hood bird and 4WD. Special ordered in Colorado by Mr. Floyd Hill, delivered to GMC Truck and Coach Division in Denver CO. on 6-5-57. I also have the original owner’s manual. I believe ’57 was the first year for the automatic transmission for 4WD.

First Look: GMC Sierra All Terrain HD Concept

Posted by Mike Levine | December 16, 2010 – in

Could GMC add a halo off-road truck to its full-size pickup lineup? The diesel-powered GMC Sierra All Terrain Heavy Duty Concept — which will debut next month at the 2011 Detroit auto show — points to how the “professional grade” brand thinks it might deliver a credible competitor to the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor and the Ram 2500 Power Wagon in the current or next-generation Sierra HD.

1980 GMC Indy Hauler & 1980 T/A Pace Car – Jeff Pedie

Posted in Member Rides, What's new on the GMC Scene on December 15, 2010 by pontiacoaklandclub

GMC Indy hauler“I have been collecting cars for a few years. I collect mostly Pontiac Trans Am but a few others also. The favorites in my collection are the Pace Cars. I have 1980 Indy Trans Am Pace Car and also 1980 Indy Hauler, the matching set. I bought the car in 2005 in great condition I found it in Willmar,MN , I bought the truck in 2009 it to is in great condition. I found the truck completely by accident. Many, many people have driven right past it for years and didn’t know what it was. It was sitting in a farmer’s field by a shed as I was driving past with my boss I spotted it and we turned around to look. There it sat, I went right to the town and started asking who owned the property. I found him and went to talk to him. I bought it on the spot. I am planning to restore all my toys as soon as I can. Right now I’m working on my 1979 Daytona 500 4spd. When I’m done with that I just pick another one. I am still looking, I would like to get the Pace Trucks to go with the Pace Cars that I have. I really want the 1980 Indy Hauler Dually to complete the set. Any Pace Cars or Pace Trucks that I can find I would love to pick up.”    Owner: Jeff Pedie, Bottineau, ND
