A powerful-looking exterior, comfy loaded interior, and awesome suspension upgrades make this 1996 GMC Sonoma Pro Street an awesome custom
And the value price leaves room in your budget to add the big power motor of your choice. Then again, the fuel-injected V6 power this one already has is no slouch!
The instant attraction to this truck is the level of care that went into its transformation. The factory-correct Olympic White has been updated to make sure the good gloss shows off the clean body panels. Plus, the golden racing stripes go over the top from bumper to bumper to give this a winning attitude. The cowl hood, billet grille, aerodynamic tonneau, and large rear wing are all part of the big power presentation. And of course, the Weld Racing Draglite polished wheels love to highlight the awesome fat rear tire stance. This has the look of an impressive pro street machine because the suspension hardware investments have already been made. But while this was done to be an LS-based project, it’s being sold before the stock V6 was upgraded. So we bet there are also some of you out there who just like the look of an outlaw-style pickup that still has a daily driver level of sensibilities. There’s even a clean carpeted bed under the tonneau where the wider rear wheels have not eliminated the usefulness.
And another reason why it’s uniquely attractive to have a stock-style motor is that the interior is quite stock, too. It hasn’t been gutted/lightened for race duty yet, and so you have an attractive tan that almost looks like they mixed the colors of the exterior’s white and gold. The included window sticker shows this was born a loaded SLS-trim pickup that includes comfy velour upholstery, a fold-down center armrest, cup holders, a driver airbag, an AM/FM stereo, a sliding rear window, tinted windows, and cold-blowing air conditioning. So no matter your plans for the future, this is a comfortable cruise on day one.
Under the hood is a proper level of flair for an upgraded truck with polished components, including the upgraded air intake. And we really like how the radiator shroud is painted to continue the racing stripes. The 4.3-liter V6 was already a desirable motor to have here because it was the largest of the Sonoma series in the smallest/lightest single cab pickup. And these fuel-injected powerhouses are quite stout in an actual miles truck like this. As you check out the upgrades, you’ll love the look of the rear suspension. It’s a full professional setup built by S&W Racing. That means a reinforced four-link setup that includes a diagonal link, LPW diff covers, and adjustable coilovers. And this extra wide Mickey Thompson tires tuck into it all so nicely. And while this is ready to be a big power machine, this is not some half-done project. The exhaust was properly routed through the suspension upgrades, and everything remains quite complete. And the power steering, power brakes, front discs, and four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive mean you have quite a solid cruiser.
This GMC has a sharp and powerful style that’s quite attractive. So no matter if this is your base for the next step or you just want an awesome cruiser, you know this is a hot deal on a cool custom pickup.
