Truck Information:
The GMC General, along with the Chevrolet Bison, were the largest Class 8 conventional cab trucks 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 or 8V97 or the Caterpillar 3408, the cabs were all aluminum and produced by the Budd Company. Volvo held an 85% stake in the Volvo/GM joint venture. Volvo had acquired White Motor Company in 1980, the joint venture was 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.
