The GMC Sprint was a great way to get the look of an El Camino in a more distinct and truck-ready badge. Not only are they a rarer sight today, but also 1971 was the first year for the Sprint name. But it’s not just history that makes this one grab attention.
It’s a driver’s environment that starts with the wood-rimed sports steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. It gives you an excellent view of the sporty round gauge cluster that even includes a tach. The rest of the dash is oriented around the driver, and so it’s an easy reach to some nice features.
A strong crate V8, A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, and so much more make this an outstanding classic. And when you can get it in the more distinct 1971 GMC Sprint packaging, you know you have an all-around winner.
