As General Motors' stalwart and devoutly focused truck brand, GMC has produced years of tough and innovative workhorses that are often completely overlooked by classic car investors. But, when it comes to restoration, dedicated fans of the 'Professional Grade' division have a rich legacy of preserving unique and exceptionally well-done offerings that cause a big stir every time they roll out of the garage. A proven platform that celebrates the uniqueness of all-American performance, this sweet Typhoon capitalizes on GM's solid engineering and GMC's innate exclusivity. And, whether you're a diehard GMC fan, an old school truck lover or just a curious buyer who's looking for something a bit different, it's a cool classic that 'fires on all cylinders'!

ALL BUSINESS

After blowing the doors off the houses of many global sports cars with their awesome Syclone pickup, GMC decided they'd just go ahead and reign over everyone's performance parade with the superb Typhoon SUV. But unfortunately, the corporation's own bureaucracy killed the world-beating SUV after just two years on the market, limiting production to 4,700 units. This exceptional Typhoon, reflecting a collection of straight surfaces that are scored by even gaps and textured by factory-correct trim, is one of only 98 trucks dressed in iconic Black and Gray paint for the 1993 model year. That pigment, believed to be largely original, has been professionally sealed in a glossy layer of clear. And today, this GMC rolls as one crisp and clean classic that's fit to both drive and display!

TURBO TANK

GM's stalwart 4300 V6 has, through a myriad of engineering changes, anchored the company's truck line for close to 40 years. For Typhoon duty, the LB4 4300 saw significant mechanical upgrades. Better pistons and better breathing intake and exhaust manifolds joined a Mitsubishi TD06-17C turbocharger, a Garrett water/air intercooler and a 48mm twin-bore throttle body that was borrowed from Chevrolet's 5.7 liter V8. All those carefully calculated tweaks and improvements added up to a very impressive 280 horsepower and 350 lb./ft. of V8-slaying torque. And that meant the truck's strip-scorching times would not only best GM's own Camaro and Corvette, but also catapult it to the forefront of 1990s performance! Mechanically, everything, from this GMC's dry oil pan to its aftermarket air intake, is clean, lean and largely weather-free. And one glance at our high-resolution photos is all it takes to see that the truck has been meticulously maintained by loving enthusiasts.

A NIMBLE TANK, THAT IS…

With that kind of power on tap, it should come as no surprise that GM equipped the bottom of this Jimmy with a host of noteworthy upgrades. Behind the raucous engine, a reliable 4L60 automatic makes the most of a factory 10-bolt that's finished with sporty, 3.42 gears. That gearbox twists torque to BorgWarner all-wheel drive, which sends 35% of its power to the front wheels. Speaking of front wheels, this truck's massive meats are pointed by factory power steering. Speaking of power-assist, the truck's power-assisted brake system is one of the first to be fully accompanied by standard anti-lock technology. The truck's Typhoon-exclusive self-leveling suspension has been augmented with a roster of Belltech components that includes lowering blocks, lowering keys, oversized sway bars, springs and shocks. And power meets the pavement through New Old Stock alloys, which spin 245/50R16 Ohtsu FP7000s around carefully restored center caps.

SPEED AND COMFORT

Inside this clean cruiser, you'll find an original leather interior that's loaded with features like power windows, power door locks, Cruise Control and a tilting steering wheel. In front of that wheel, factory buckets are big and welcoming. Opposite those seats, a blocky dash frames factory telemetry next to factory Delco audio. Below that dash, fade-free carpet frames a small console and a simple factory shifter. And everything stays secure thanks to a vigilant Viper Alarm.

Nobody scoffs at GMC's Syclone and Typhoon. Thanks to their Professional Grade DNA, and an ability to whip pretty much any street challenger, the trucks get big respect and much admiration. So, what are you waiting for? Grab this brutish SUV and enjoy one of the coolest classics on the planet!
