1972 GMC C1500 SWB –



1972 GMC C1500 SWB – 1967 was the initial year that Chevrolet Motor Division and GM Truck and Bus Division agreed to split platform production. The former would make all light trucks, with GMCs essentially becoming rebadged Chevrolets, while GMC would build all larger trucks, supplying Chevy with rebadged units. As such, while the all-new 1967 GMC pickups shared the same chassis and sheet metal as Chevrolet, it was available with a GMC unique engine, the 305 cid V-6. This was in addition to GMC now also using Chevrolet’s sixes and V-8s. GMC’s trim lines also paralleled Chevy. From 1967 through 1971, they ranged from the basic Deluxe up to the Custom and the Super Custom at the top end. Changing for 1972, they then went from Custom, Super Custom, Sierra, to a new premium Sierra Grande which matched up with the Cheyenne Super. While GMC also used the C (two wheel drive) and K (four wheel drive) model designators, they differed from Chevrolet in that they used four digit numbers for the weight range. This was partially due to coordinating with their medium and heavy-duty trucks that were already using four digit model codes. As such, half-tons were 1500s, three-quarter tons were 2500s, and one-tons were 3500.

It is widely known that the 1970-1972 C10s are the most popular and most rapidly appreciating classic trucks on the market. But, Chevy/GMC stamped out thousands of these trucks and over the last 45-47 years and many have been altered beyond any resemblance of how they looked new. We have owned several C10s of this era over the years and this is the nicest “lightly modified” examples we’ve seen. The paint is perfect, the truck drives great, everything works like it should and the A/C is ice cold. The odometer reads 14k miles which reflects the mileage on this truck since the build was completed. Additional features and options include; 350 V8, Auto, Serpentine Belt Front Runner System, , Center Console Storage, Chrome Grill, Power Steering/Brakes, A/C, Tinted Glass, Alpine AM/FM/CD Stereo, Chrome Bumpers/Mirrors, Rubber Floormats, Rubber Bed Mat, Cowl Hood, Chevy Air Cleaner & Valve Covers, Autometer Gauges, GT Grant Steering Wheel, Carbon Fiber Dash Bezel, Dual Exhaust w/ Chrome Tips, 15″ Chrome Torque Thrust Wheels, and thick BF Goodrich 235/70/R15 Tires!
