GMC Brochures and Sales Literature

GMC brochures and sales literature

Like so many other bands including GMC and others that have come and gone is General Motors and here the GMC brochures currently available. William Durant founded General Motors in 1908 as a holding company for the Buick brand and it evolved into quite a huge enterprise with so many brands under the General Motors Umbrella. However GMC has some history that starts back in 1909 when General motors bought the Rapid Motor vehicle Company which was primarily a built of trucks at the time. When GM took over it became GMC Trucks. In the beginning they built some of the earliest trucks and commercial vehicles and some were even one-cylinder vehicles.

That same year General Motors also purchased the Reliance Motor Car Company and brought them into the fold and eventually merged the two in 1911 and in 1912 the GMC truck was introduced to the market. The group comprised of Rapid, Reliance and GMC, which produced approximately 22,000 trucks in 1912, but the actual numbers of trucks produced by GMC were only 372 vehicles. Over the next couple of years the other names faded away and the GMC truck was the brand that become known throughout the industry. However few GMC brochures are available today, but we will keep searching. The average consumer was unfamiliar with the GMC trucks, but people and companies that needed trucks soon become aware of the GMC truck brand.

The GMC truck continued to make strides in the commercial vehicle arena it was news when a GMC truck went cross country form Seattle to New York City in 1916 in thirty days and then again in 1926 when a 2-ton GMC truck went from New York to San Francisco in 5 days and 30 minutes. GMC became a major supplier of trucks to the U.S. Armed Forces during World War II by supplying 600,000 trucks. We are still searching for some of the old GMC brochures and sales literature to publish and will make them available when possible.

GMC moved into producing lighter duty vehicles that crossed over into the markets that competed with Ford, Dodge and Chevrolet by building light duty pick-up trucks and SUVs. Many vehicles look practically the same as many of the Chevrolet models with only minor changes. Some of these models were the GMC Jimmy and the Chevrolet Blazer, the Chevy Tahoe and the GMC Yukon and the Chevy Silverado and the GMC Sierra. You will notice some the similarities when you take a look at these GMC brochures and sales catalogs. GMC has a rich history and its own line of vehicles that range from SUVs, pick-up, light-duty trucks, medium duty trucks, heavy-duty trucks, fire trucks, ambulances, transit buses and military vehicles.
