eBay Find of the Day: 1991 GMC Syclone, I’d Still Hit That Edition

Posted in Car Buying, Classic, eBay Motors, General, GMC, Pictures, Trucks by Suzanne Denbow | December 15th, 2009 | 5 Responses |


In stark contrast to the European money pits traditionally featured, today’s FOTD is a 1991 GMC Syclone. Despite the fact that it’s probably older than your first born child and manufactured by a company not exactly renowned for its longevity (which I expect will be directly refuted by a barrage of GM forum trolls), both the Syclone and the Typhoon have left such an indelible legacy that they are granted a reprieve from my domestic scorn.

As a matter of fact, so enamored am I with arguably one of the best examples of superior engineering to ever leave Michigan, I’m even willing to overlook the ominously rebuilt title. According to the seller (and confirmed by Carfax), the truck was stolen in 2001 and recovered with damage severe enough to warrant a “salvage” branding, which still only resulted in a $2k price decrease. The slightly blurry photos paint a promising picture, though, and as long as you’re adept at maintaining a vehicle constructed almost entirely out of Bondo, this is definitely a piece worth investing in.

    I wanted a GMC Syclone so badly after reading a road test in Car and Driver Magazine way back when. Unfortunately, I couldn’t afford to buy one new at the time. If I were to buy one now, I’d try to get it checked out at a GMC dealership, as well as have the engine leakdown test performed.

    Thanks for posting this find!

    While I’m admittedly something less than a GM fan, these trucks are actually kind of cool. They are also fairly rare, with less than 3000 produced, and will be hot little commodities over the next several decades.

    Well, this part of the American vehicle manufacturing industry is already in the past!
