The crane on the back of the truck does work and will give you hours of enjoyment driving around and repossessing you friend’s cars. This 1-Ton Wrecker has a stock dually rear end with 4.11 gears with all-new custom aluminum wheels all around with heavy-duty tires.

All cabling and controls are operational making this 1-Ton GMC Wrecker as full-functioning as the day it was assembled. With only 7 miles reported on this eye-catching tow truck since it’s restoration, the only this work it has seen has been to draw customers into a garage that was converted into an eating establishment/bar by sitting out front and looking it’s best.

1949 GMC Pickup 3/4 Ton FC152

1949 GMC Pickup 3/4 Ton FC152


Engine: 228 CID I6
Transmission: 4 Speed Manual
Mileage: 165 ( undocumented )

Offered for sale in our Dallas-Fort Worth showroom is this 1949 GMC ¾ Ton Pickup. This special Advance Design pickup has come a long way from its early life on a Mid-Missouri farm. Owned and restored by Dale Jacobs of Dallas, Texas, this 1949 GMC ¾ ton has been down to the frame and came out just a little nicer than new. It’s the old story. It looked very nice and ran just as well but a little extra touch would make it a nicer pickup. Well, the more he got into areas, the more he saw things that just were not quite right. After all it was a farm work truck for so many years. Before long you are tired of seeing so many imperfections, you check your bank account, and say “Let’s just make it a new truck”. It will only take time and money! It was taken down to the bare frame (the easiest part) and the building of the oversize model kit begins. This four-year “frame off” TOTAL restoration project of this “numbers matching” GMC ¾ ton pickup involved doing much research, making local new restoration contacts, and learning so much about early GMC’s. The “Ron Kelly Designs” complete rebuild of this original drivetrain and chassis included the GMC 228 engine long block (.08 over rebore), head, flywheel, clutch, 4-speed on the floor transmission with “granny” gear, drive shaft and rear end, all dynamically balanced. Modifications to improve performance include full-flow oil filtering, dual 2-barrel Stromberg carburetors adaptation to original intake manifold with new linkage, and Fenton dual exhaust headers with custom muffler routing. Dale’s ¾ ton has the optional 17” split rim wheels instead of the stock 15”. (These were original on the 1 ton pickup of these years). The extra 2” gives the truck a higher top end speed and lowers the engine RPM. Good during daily in-town driving. Another very unique fixture is the intake manifold. The original single barrel carburetor intake center hole was blocked off. Then front and rear carburetor receiver openings were installed to hold a pair of two-barrel Stromberg’s. It operates excellent and is probably the only one of its kind in the world! What an eye catcher! He says it easily cruises at almost 70 mph! The chassis rebuild involved frame powder coating, front and rear spring leafs with helpers, Delco lever arm shocks, duel master cylinder brake system, front end and steering linkage with drive box. The electrical system conversion to 12 volts included the original Delco starter and generator, regulator, new Mallory dual point distributor and coil, new wiring harness, 4 corner lighting with halogen headlights and turn signaling. A new water pump, radiator with expansion cylinder and hoses improve the cooling system. All body panels were COMPLETELY disassembled and, along with the cab, subjected to a strip and de-rust total immersion process. Reassembly with new fasteners was preceded by extensive applications of epoxy and urethane primers and initial custom lacquer paint then followed by final lacquer paint and clear coatings. Cab restoration involved new door handles, hinges and panels, headliner with insulation, sun visors, gauge cluster and speedometer, vintage GMC reproduction stereo AM/FM radio and 7 new glass windows allowing a surround view. The air flow heater with control valve and defroster ducts, vacuum wiper motor with linkage, fuel tank with new sender, and all pedal controls were also restored to original specifications. Traversing seat with era appropriate new upholstery allows comfort with a vintage signature. Firewall, roof, floor and doors all received sound deadening applications. Finishing touches include the re-chromed original grill, badging, radiator fan and added dual trumpet horns. Color coordinated powder coated engine side and valve covers enhance the engine bay. Also evident are new bumpers with valences, vintage Unity spot and fog lights, chromed fuel tank linkage, and powder coated original split rim wheels with new 750-17 tires. An eye-catching top grade oak bed and side rails with stainless linings and fasteners complete this classic restoration.

1992 GMC Typhoon

1992 GMC Typhoon


Engine: 4.3L V6 F
Transmission: 4 Speed Automatic with Over Drive
Mileage: 10,869 ( actual )

Now Featured in our Denver showroom is this stunning low mile 1992 GMC Typhoon with just over 10,000 miles since new! The Typhoon was one of the first of its breed with an auto manufacturer deciding to make a performance vehicle out of an SUV and had a short life span from 1991-1993. Powering these trucks was a 4.3L turbocharged V6 pumping out a strong 280HP from the factory and delivered it to all four wheels! The Typhoon has been a bit of a lost gem until recently and has started to become a very popular vehicle for collectors and enthusiasts everywhere. This Typhoon has been very well kept over the years and has only had two owners since new. The red paint still looks like it did on the showroom floor and very few were built in this color. Getting behind the wheel of this GMC, you would hardly guess what it is capable of. It all becomes very clear once you start cruise though and lay your foot into the throttle! The all wheel drive hooks up hard and presses you back in your seat with authority. This unassuming pickup will surprise most of the cars it passes and will do so in style and comfort! This Typhoon has been well maintained over the years and would make an excellent investment piece or toy to take out on nice weekends. No matter what your plans are with this Typhoon it will not disappoint! This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom. You can view this 1992 GMC Typhoon in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com.
