Description

1975 Beau James Limited Edition Short Bed Pickup.
The Beau James was the top of the line special edition in 1975. They built 4000 of these trucks and less than 10% were short bed trucks (what I am told from a few Beau James owners, collectors and reading).
These trucks came with everything GMC had to offer in 1975. AC, Power Disk Brakes (Heavy Duty), Cruise Control, tinted glass, Clock , tilt wheel. Then topped off with a Custom Color, Custom Hood Ornament, Custom Floor Mats, Beau James emblem on bed. Burlwood interior trim. Bed Side Rails.
This truck was still with its original owner until this past year. The 58,200 Miles are original.
Sold New at Peters Pontiac, Cadillac, GMC in Lodi CA. 9-11-1975. I have the original Owners Manual and Protecto Plate. Documented from new.
The truck had a GM Goodwrench replacement motor at the dealership about 10 years ago. Very few miles since. It runs absolutely perfect. Starts instantly, runs cool with excellent oil pressure. Radiator restored and AC converted to R-134A. AC works perfect and blows Ice cold. How many 1975 truck can you say that about?
Turbo hydramatic shifts effortlessly.
It has new front brakes, New Cooper Cobra Tires with less than 500 miles.
It was stock height when I got the truck. I lowered it properly. Using DJM 3 inch Drop Spindles and one inch lower coil up front. And an axle Flip kit in rear with Shock extenders. New front Lowered shocks too. It rides beautifully. I have original suspension parts if you wanted to go to shock height.
Mechanically it is excellent, needs nothing. Just replaced the exhaust from Crossover back, muffler included. 4 Barrel carb from new. Truck is bone stock under the hood with exception of replacement block.
All glass is excellent, Interior is clean, carpets are originals (which goes to the condition of the truck). The dash is original and cracked under the cover.
Everything works, everything.
Could be driven cross country today.
The truck has NOS New Beau James Floormats. Last pair sold for nearly $1000, just the mats.
The truck is very straight and solid, Cab and Bed have ZERO rust. Only rust anywhere in truck in blisters in the bottom of the passenger fender.
The truck has had one repaint in close to the original color. Hood should be Silver. The truck does need to be painted again. Really that is all this truck needs to be excellent is a paint job.
The last shorted Beau James that was known sold was over 5 years ago. Now is your opportunity. These square body GM trucks are the next hot trucks. They drive great, like any modern car. This truck is super fun to drive, fast, sounds good.
I can hold for 30 days while transportation arrangements are made. I have clear CA title in my name with current registration. Original Manual and records included.
