Vehicle Description
1955 GMC half ton shortbed big window V-8 3 speed manual with 57K original miles. This was the 421st second series 55 GMC built, with the 317th Pontiac 388 motor built. This is a very early production truck. Complete original Unmolested truck right down to the wingnut on the oil bath air cleaner on the factory Pontiac 388 V-8 motor, which is probably stuck (NOT),as it has been sitting since the sixties, which is how the miles stayed so low. I have always had a thing for these Old Jimmys with their humongous chrome front end. These original unmolested 55-56 GMC big window shortbed trucks that are getting pretty hard to find. They have always been popular among the hotrodders and customizers, even when they were new. I bought this truck from a gentleman in Kimbalton Iowa that worked at the local GMC Pontiac dealer back in the fifties and remembers servicing this truck when it was new. He has owned it since the sixties. It still has the original key in the ignition with the knockout intact. It was bought new by the owner of the local gas station in Exira, Iowa, and has 57K original one owner miles. It is in surprisingly good shape considering it has been sitting mostly outside for over 40 years.It needs front fenders, cab corners and steps,and a few other small rust repairs. It is very straight, and appears to be 100% original paint, or whats left of the original paint. Replacement body parts are readily available new and not very expensive either. The door hinge areas are good, and that is the worst area to repair rust on these trucks. The massive, beautiful, Caddillac like GMC grill is complete and straight except for a dent in the upper eybrow piece, and I am on the hunt for one of those. Well we are back from Pa’s 95th,and the Jimmy has made it’s way back to Austin, so I will be sorting it out in the near future and post more info, and maybe raise the price, or maybe lower the price...........10/1/11 Update. and raise the price it is, because with just a little encouragement this old girl is now running like a new one, , I drove it around the yard and over to the shed from the shop under it’s own power to await a new owner or further attention like brakes, whichever comes first....... And a new owner came first. It is off to Timersdala Sweden with Ulf for a new lease on life. I’ll bet you don’t see one of these every day in Sweden.........
