We are excited to offer this unique special interest edition, produced for a short period of time in 1975, that has a number of unique features. Marketed by GMC as a more upscale pickup, the Gentleman Jim had more options than the rest of the product line. You could say it was a predecessor to the Denali line of pickups that we see in dealerships currently. (Chevrolet also offered their own version with the “Beau James”.)
The Gentleman Jim trucks had many options that were more common on the Cadillacs of the day such as woodgrain trim throughout the interior, 'gun stock design' trim around the wood grain, full matching door panels that contained sound deadening material, and matching door pockets. In addition, a full set of gauges including tach, bucket seats with center storage console, and controls for the A/C were also standard. The interior of the truck we offer here is in very good condition from the upholstery to the woodgrain. The seat upholstery and carpet were recently replaced giving this good ol' Gentleman Jim a crisp appearance.
Black and Gold two tone exterior set the Gentleman Jim trucks apart from the rest, much different than the usual color combinations seen on the rest of the line of GMC and Chevrolet pickups. Other than the two tone paint, the other notable options were the outer bed rails, gold grille and wheels, and of course the stylized “Gentleman Jim” script. The body and frame of this particular truck is in solid condition, with a repaint of the Gold center section of the body being done a number of years ago. The original script remains on the bed as well as the bed rails.
Under the two tone hood is a rebuilt 350ci V8 with 4 Barrel carburetor mated to a rebuilt transmission. The exhaust was recently replaced as well as the tires. Other notable options on this truck are power brakes, (disc brakes in the front), power steering, Air Conditioning, and working heat.
This is a limited production, turn key truck ready for a new home - if you don't mind Gentleman Jim residing in your garage. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors. Call if interested or e-mail with any questions. Thank you for looking.
