1948 GMC PICK-UP
Resto Mod American Muscle Trucks are currently all the rage, not just here in South Africa, but around the world. They command excellent sale prices, making them highly sought-after assets. At Creative Rides, we’ve had the pleasure of selling a few over time, but this GMC stands out as one of the finest examples we’ve ever come across.
The GMC is a part of the Chevrolet brand, and some liken it to what AMG is to Mercedes Benz today. The late 40s and early 50s marked a remarkable era in design and rapid development, resulting in yearly changes to vehicles. Once a workhorse, this truck carried all sorts of goods for the working folk of its time. Today, it’s transformed into a showpiece with an impressive stance and presence.
This GMC boasts intricate details, from its eye-catching silver paintwork to the 5-spoke Boss Motorsport wheels that snugly fit within the wheel arches. Beneath the wheels, you’ll notice the Jaguar suspension seamlessly integrated into the GMC Chassis, instilling confidence in its handling and stopping abilities. This is crucial because under the hood, there’s a Chevrolet LS1 Engine that roars to life, providing a modern Chevy SS Ute-like experience.
However, the real star of the show is the cabin of this ’48 Pick-up. It’s adorned in luxurious leather, from the bench seat to the dash, with a touch of aluminum accents on the steering wheel and gauges.
There’s only one way to describe this masterpiece on wheels—it’s an awe-inspiring sight on the road or in any parking lot and a sheer delight to drive. So, if you’re a fan of Resto Mods, this truck is an absolute must-have. Don’t miss out on it.
