The manufacturer GMC said goodbye to the model in 1991 Jimmy and replaced it with the Yukon. That worked because it was at least as good. The Jimmy was sold for two generations, and the model you see here is a second generation vehicle from 1985. But it hardly looks like it did back then. That's because it's a well-done one Restomod acts. So a classic with a revised look, a new interior and various modifications to the drive train. And they are noticeable with every burst of gas. Why? Because according to the Mecum auction (the vehicle will be auctioned there) the classic SUV is a powerful one 454 ci (7,4 L) V8 engine with 425 PS under the hood.

As an eye catcher to the black body, the saddles are painted red. And of course it is also clear lowered. And by means of coilover. This does not make the Jimmy the ultimate curve predator, but a contemporary pace is definitely feasible. And as already mentioned, the interior has also been completely redesigned. There was a brand new one dashboard, Aluminum sports steering wheel with leather wreath, plus new ones door panels and also the Carpets as well as the Dakota Custom Ads were in the course of full Restauration and revision installed.
