Classic Car Overview

1972 GMC Sprint Truck The GMC Sprint is a coupe utility/pickup that was produced by GMC for the 1971 1977 model years. The Sprint was renamed Caballero for the 1978 model year and produced through 1987. The rear-wheel-drive car-based pickups were sold by GMC Truck dealers primarily in the United States and Canada as the GMC version of the Chevrolet El Camino. Trim designations, emblems, and wheel trim differentiate the GMC from the Chevrolet. The vehicles were built on the GM A platform through 1981; for 1982, it was re-designated the G platform as the A platform switched to front-wheel drive. For consignment, an original 1 owner truck, low miles (50,104), vinyl top and number 423 of 6,766 total units produced. Purchased in late 1971 in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, this truck is the grocery getter version of the Sprint with a mere 149 produced with the 250ci 6 cylinder engine. A rare bird indeed, available for the plucking right out of our Classic Auto Mall hallowed halls. Exterior The beneficiary of a respray in War Bonnet Yellow 18 years ago, it still retains its shine. Prior to painting, a new drivers side rear floor was replaced, and the drivers side rear quarter panel and right rear wheel arch were welded and blended in. Now no rust is seen on this vehicle, and dimple free steel with straight well minded gaps abound throughout. A black vinyl top is the original and remains fade free and underlying rust free. Two longer flying B pillar buttresses angle rearward to the sides of the bed, which is covered with a black vinyl tonneau, also in excellent condition. Underneath if we peek inside the bed, it is seldom used, nary even a scratch on this total steel box bed. Standard body matching steel wheels with the basic wheel covers are on all 4 corners which sport thin white sidewall tires. Consigner states the original spare from the factory is on board. Interior Very simple, very effective, and very original, we see black panels for the doors with just a hint wood appliqu, shiny knobs and cranks, and all clean and nice door panels. A split bench stretches from door panel to door panel and is nearly new looking all in black vinyl. The factory dash, factory instruments and factory steering wheel are also inside, and all surfaces have been well cared for over time. Clean black vinyl floods the floors, and a tight black headliner is above this 1-seater possible 3 passenger truck posing as a car. Drivetrain Opening the hood, and a thing of mechanical beauty exists, in the form of an orange block, intake manifold, and valve cover 250ci inline 6-cylinder that looks like it just drove off the showroom floor up in Punxsutawney. Supple hoses, no corrosion, and certainly no rust are seen anywhere in this engine bay. A 1 barrel carburetor is atop and covered by a nearly perfect black air cleaner covering. On the back is a 2-speed Powerglide transmission, with a 10-bolt 3.36 rear axle. Just a beautiful performance under this hood. Take a bow! Undercarriage Some surface rust on the driveshaft, road dirt on the suspension, but otherwise all solid steel rust free structure and floorpans. Drum brake housings show a slight bit of surface rust and are on all 4 corners. Independent coil springs for the front and a 4 link with coil springs for the back are on and accounted for. New wheel cylinders, water pump and starter are now installed and working to standards. Drive-Ability Consigner states this is a little old lady car, but by being so, it is very rare. We hopped in and started her right up. It was off to the test track where it was a pleasure to drive, smooth acceleration that does get you up to highway speeds, smooth ride, and nice handling. All functions were working as they should! Now pay attention Sonny!!! Number 423 of 6,766, and one of ONLY 149 with the 6-cylinder low end optioned car. Plus, the vinyl top, nice respray, and an all original interior, shiny and nice. Lest we forget the engine which is truly a sight to behold in its original painted orange jacket supple hoses and corrosion free bolt ons. Well? what are you waiting for, someone will beat you to this rare bird if you do not get with the program!
