LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1956 GMC Suburban Carrier

 The Suburban Carrier was the GMC version of the Chevrolet Cameo pickup and featured unique fiberglass besides attached to the rear steel cargo box with a hidden spare tire compartment behind the bumper. These styling changes and other features truly set them apart from General Motors' more utilitarian pickups and elevated their desirability. Optional only to the GMC was a 316 V-8 engine that was built by Pontiac and would become an icon unto itself by morphing through multiple displacements via boring and stroking, and being chosen as the legendary power plant for the Pontiac GTO. This unique powerplant had two transmission options including a four-speed Hydra-Matic automatic or a four-speed manual. Only 300 of these trucks were built for 1956 making them one of the rarest classic trucks around.

 Presented in the stunning color combination of Ocean Green and Ivory, this 1956 GMC Pickup has been fitted with the highly desirable and rare 316 CI V-8 engine and backed by a four-speed Hydra-Matic automatic transmission. Additional options include power steering, radio and accessory fan. This Suburban Carrier has been beautifully restored under previous ownership and is ready to be enjoyed by its next caretaker. As only 300 of these 1956 examples were built, these rarely come up for sale, especially in this condition and outfitted with these options!
