    Hi

    Im new to the site and new to GMC / Chevy Trucks.

    Just bought this 1997 2 Door Yukon GT with 55k miles, one owner car impoted into Spain in 97.

    I plan to use this as my day to day detailing truck - bear in mind everyone here has water and power so its a clean role.

    Just picked up some new hubcaps to update the scratched ones and aside from a few minor items i think its a good one.

    Cheers

    Max

    Welcome from Miami Beach Adam!

    Your 97 Yukon GT looks awesome! Your 2 Door in that condition is extremely hard to find.

    Thanks Guys.

    I must say its in great shape not only for the year but given its located in Spain which notorious for being hard on cars.

    Everything works. Theres nothing missing. Drives great and so on.

    Looking forward to rocking up to my clients in it in a few weeks time.

    Question, did they make / sell many of the GT? I cannot seem to find any information.

    Cheers

    Yes, 1 owner from new, not entirely sure where it was purchased in 1997, soon after it went to Murcia, Spain. Owned by a US car / bike enthusiast.

    The handbooks, tools, spare etc is all in tact, the electricals all work, documented miles through the annual inspection process here which is pretty tough plus bills / invoices etc.

    The interior is incredible for it's age, no marks on the seats, dash is as new, the headliner is tight, carpets are perfect.

    At first, I thought I'd done all the money on this car at $14,000, but there's none here - to import one from the US or a 2-Door Blazer or Tahoe would cost the same when you take into account the cost of import, transport and what have you.

    I'm not a stranger to Chevrolet, I've owned some interesting C2 corvettes both here, the UK and my 10 year stint in the US - still loving you guys and your cars / trucks 30 years since I first step foot on US soil.

    I will update you when I pick it up and put it to good use.

    Cheers

    Welcome to the forum! I love the 2 door Yukon’s! Just really cool rides in general! And welcome from another mobile auto detailer here as well! I detail out in Southern California and I use my Yukon XL as my detail rig. The space in these things for all the gear is awesome! Cheers to detailing and making lots of cars pretty! Haha
