We’ve Got GMC Touch Up Paint
Although this car brand has been around for more than a hundred years, everything was not smooth sailing for the automotive giant. Let’s start at the beginning – the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company was founded in 1901 by Max Gabrowski as one of the earliest commercial trucks constructor. At the time, business savvy William C. Durant founded General Motors as a holding company for Buick. Flaring an interesting business opportunity, Mr. Durant bought Rapid Motor in 1909 marking the base of the GM trucks foundation. The same year, the corporation bought another independent company, the Reliance Motor Car Company and quickly merged the two entities together in 1911. The first appearance of the brand GMC trucks was the next year at the New-York International Auto Show.
Since that time GMC was considered an independent entity encompassed inside GM. The truck company started gathering quite the amount of interest when they started a couple of cross-country expeditions across the U.S. The initial 1916 expedition allowed one GMC truck to ride from Seattle to New-York City in only thirty days. The subsequent excursion took the 1926 truck five days and thirty minutes to cover all the ground between New-York to San-Francisco.
During the second World War, GMC provided the U.S. Military with an impressive 600 000 trucks, some of them being amphibious 6X6 trucks. After this success, the company diversified its offering by developing a range of ambulances and fire trucks. Then, the buyout of a Chicago bus company provided GMC the technical knowledge to construct urban and transit buses. On that point, the manufacturing of buses completely stopped in 1987 as a result of the increasing competition of this line of trucks. The brand is now concentrating on SUVs, pickups, light and medium duty trucks and vans.
