NO RESERVE! 1976 GMC JIMMY SIERRA CASA GRANDE
IN 1976 CHEVROLET GMC CAME OUT WITH THE 4X4 VERSION POP UP CAMPER STYLE NAMED CASA GRANDE TRANSLATED AS THE BIG HOUSE.
VERY FEW WERE PRODUCED UNDER 500 OF THEM WERE EVER MADE AND ONLY A HANDFUL STILL EXIST.
THIS PARTICULAR EXAMPLE IS AN ALL ORIGINAL NEVER RESTORED TRUCK. THESE TRUCKS ARE BRINGING HUGE DOLLARS AS ORIGINALS OR RESTORED. IT HAS THE FACTORY MATCHING NUMBER V8 ENGINE AND WAS HIGHLY OPTIONED WHEN ORDERED.
CASA GRANDE: MEANS BIG HOUSE LIKE THE CHALET CAMPER, THE CASA GRANDE COMBINED THE MUSCLE AND PRACTICALITY OF A PICKUP TRUCK WITH THE COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE OF AN RV CAMPER. THE RESULT IS NOTHING LESS THAN THE ULTIMATE VEHICLE TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL.
JIMMY CASA GRANDE WAS A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT BETWEEN GM AND RV MAKER CHINOOK MOBILODGE INC. THE REAR CAMPER IS COMPOSED OF A FIBERGLASS REINFORCED BODY ON TOP OF THE BED OF THE JIMMY.
THE TOP OF THE CAMPER PORTION EXPANDS UPWARDS PROVIDING EVEN MORE HEADROOM INSIDE. ADDITIONALLY THERE'S NO WALL BETWEEN THE BODY AND THE CAB, WHICH MEANS THE DRIVER CAN MOVE STRAIGHT FROM THE HOT SEAT INTO THE REAR OF THE CAMPER WITHOUT ACTUALLY GETTING OUT OF THE VEHICLE
