VERY SLICK SHORT BED! BUILT 6.0L VORTECMAX V8, AUTO, WOW
It's obvious that GM built 1/2 ton pickups like this 1996 GMC Sierra 1500 with utility and practicality in mind, but they certainly didn't forget about style. Sure, it's still a rugged truck underneath, but on the outside it's one of the best-looking trucks ever built. Add in the slick white paint job, custom interior, and built ...

VERY SLICK SHORT BED! BUILT 6.0L VORTECMAX V8, AUTO, WOW
It's obvious that GM built 1/2 ton pickups like this 1996 GMC Sierra 1500 with utility and practicality in mind, but they certainly didn't forget about style. Sure, it's still a rugged truck underneath, but on the outside it's one of the best-looking trucks ever built. Add in the slick white paint job, custom interior, and built LS V8 that constitute this beauty, and you've got one of the cooler modern Restomod trucks we've ever featured here at Collectible Motorcar. Elevated into something truly special, this 'new' classic pickup is ready to dominate for decades to come.

This truck's sleek, monochromatic look comes from careful blending of bright white paint with careful aftermarket parts like the color-matched grille and front bumper, rear roll pan, painted black mirrors and handles, and blacked-out 20-inch wheels that set the pickup's aggressive stance. The finish work on the resprayed paint is very high-end, probably nicer than what you'd get stock in the mid-90s, and the laser-straight bodywork means it has always been someone's special truck. The color is Artic whiter, but with the addition of all those color-matched components, no factory paint ever had a glow like this - lit with an inner fire that is still low-key but draws you in once you notice it. The effect is quite appealing. Out back, the bed was resparyed with fresh whait paint that really looks great. And there's enough real estate back there to drag away half of Home Depot with you on the weekends. Other neat touches include the big billet GMC emblem in the front grille, fresh headlights/taillights with LED switch backs, and tinted windows that give the truck a mysterious disposition that works great.

The C/K pickups were all fairly plain and straightforward in these years, so the former owner of this '96 decided to kick things up a notch with a custom gray interior to match the beautiful white finish. Flanking a matching center console, and it's all still in great condition. The big stock steering wheel wall replaced with a more custom wheel to give this truck more attitude and immediately reminds you that this is a sport truck, as does the custom 7.5in Holley display for gauges just beyond it, to help keep a keen eye on the big motor under the hood. The truck is outfitted with options like a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo head unit. It's still comfortable and easy to drive, pretty much what we expect from our vehicles today, albeit with an old-school grunt when you mash the gas.

Fully detailed and ready to go, the engine bay is as much a show-off piece as a functional machine. The BUILT!! LQ9 6.0L V8 Vortec Max motor rumbles and shakes the ground beneath it, and you can feel added power up and down the throttle. A cold-air intake tube and coned filter feed air to help the fuel-injected motor breathe, as do the PRC Heads, stage 3 BTR cam and, ceramic LT headers at the sides that lead into a rumbling 3in stainless exhaust system that exits just before the rear axle. The modern serpentine drive system for the accessories keeps everything tucked in tightly to the block and there's a big aluminum radiator with two massive electric fans up front that keeps the whole show nice and cool. Underneath you'll find a built 4L65E 4-speed automatic transmission and a factory but modified 8.5in 10-bolt posi rear end with 3.73 gears, meaning that this truck can still work for a living just as easy as it can cruise. Upgraded shocks and springs set the wicked static stance, and with power steering and power front disc brakes you can expect a comfortable ride every time out. 20-inch Weld wheels wearing Nitto performance radials finish off the look, and we absolutely love how they play off the bright white paint.
Still cool after all these years, GM has yet to top the slick trucks of the mid-90s. With this one, you'll be the envy of every cruise night you attend. Call today!
