The Value of Classic GMC Trucks


There is no specific value range for classic GMC trucks, since the price depends on negotiations between the owner and buyer. However, classic GMC trucks, defined as built through 1975, command less money than their sister truck, the Chevrolet.

Truck Comparisons

  • Classic Chevrolet trucks in fine or excellent condition can command up to $25,000. Less in demand is the near identical GMC pickup, which leads to a lower price. Buyers can purchase an excellent GMC at half the cost of a Chevy.

Rating System

  • Classic vehicle enthusiasts use an informal rating guide to judge the value of a GMC truck. Grading on a scale of one to five, a vehicle considered a "one" is in excellent condition and is a professional frame-off restoration. A vehicle rated "two" is in fine condition. It may be an older restoration. A "three" is in very good condition, and completely original and running. A "four" is in good running condition and all original. A "five" is in restorable condition. All parts are available, but it needs restoration. It may be in running or non-running condition.

Estimated Value

  • A 1949 GMC pickup is a highly sought alternate to its Chevy counterpart. A mildly restored GMC with scratches and dings on the doors and bumpers, and some rust in the cab could command $12,500, although prices could be as low as $5,000.
