    Default 1957 GMC 100, restored, for sale

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this site but my love for vintage pickups goes back to when I was a kid. My name is C. Van Tune and I've been an automotive journalist since 1981, including being the Editor-in-Chief of Motor Trend Magazine from 1994-2001. I currently have a TV show on ESPN called "DRIVE."

    I want your members to know that I'm placing my fully restored 1957 GMC 100 for sale. The truck is a true time capsule from 50 years ago and has been a California vehicle since new; it still has its black license plate. I am only the third owner, and I searched for years before finding this lil' beauty. It is in wonderful stock condition, with the 270 I-6 and all other items restored to original. The odometer reads a bit over 74,400 miles and I have no doubt those are genuine miles. It looks and drives awesome.

    If you're interested, I've listed it on eBay. Here's the link, with a lot of photos and a thorough description:

    This is a no-disappointments truck that I really want to see go to a GM enthusiast. I will be happy to answer any questions...just call me at 325/998-3398. Thanks, Van

    update: This is not the truck (I'm not sure anyhow) but I'm adding a photo here to show what that year looks like.

    Thanks for the nice words, guys. It drives as sweet as it looks. It was a tough decision to sell it but I'm out of garage space---I'm sure you all know about that!
    Regards, Van

    Many serious inquiries about the truck? Looks like you've got a couple of bites but it's just cracked the minimum entry mark.

    Wish I would have grabbed and saved these photos, this was a gorgeous truck. Maybe I can find them online.
