1975 GMC "Beau James" Limited Edition Sierra Classic
Click for large image.
This limited edition truck model is not well known. GMC has nothing of it mentioned on their website, and upon searching the web, only one web page was found, and it's just like mine. No one knows exactly how many of these were made, but I do know that I really enjoy having a limited edition truck model from so long ago.
What the heck is a Beau James?
It's a 1975 GMC Sierra Classic, with special colors, decals, hood ornament, floor mats, and hubcaps, that were only included with a promotional limited edition model of the GMC pickup. GMC titled this promotional light duty truck "Beau James." No one can be sure why they chose this title, but it is kind of fitting for such a great old piece of history.
What makes it so great?
There aren't that many around, and if there are, they are in terrible condition. Being such a rare truck makes it special. I'm planning on calling GMC and asking them some questions about how many were made, original cost, options...etc. When I do I will post anything I find out.
IF YOU OWN ONE, HAVE SEEN ONE ON THE ROAD, OR KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS TRUCK, PLEASE EMAIL ME RIGHT AWAY, I'D LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT IT!!! firstname.lastname@example.org
