Truck Information:
The GMC General, along with the Chevrolet Bison, 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.
