Truck Information:
The GMC General was the largest Class 8 conventional cab truck produced by General Motors. This 1986 GMC General was produced in Pontiac, Michigan before being phased out as part of a GM/Volvo joint venture in 1987. The General was the last Class 8 truck produced by GMC. Several different power plants were available. A buyer could choose from the Cummins N-series, Detroit Diesel 8V71, Detroit Diesel 8V97, or the Caterpillar 3408. The cabs were all aluminum and produced by the Budd Company. Volvo – which had acquired White Motor Company in 1980 – held an 85% stake in the Volvo/GM joint venture called the Volvo GM Heavy Truck Corporation. Trucks were sold under the combined White GMC nameplate. Ultimately the GMC trucks were phased out and replaced with White-designed Volvo GM products.
