10k: Stormy Weather: 1993 GMC Typhoon

The GMC Typhoon was a turbocharged version of the GMC Jimmy compact SUV and offered stunning straight line performance for the time.  A combination of all-wheel-drive and a big displacement turbocharged engine meant the Typhoon would leave more expensive sports cars like the Ferrari 348 and Chevy Corvette sitting in its wake.  Find this 1993 GMC  Typhoon for sale in Taos, NM for $12,500 via craigslist.  Tip from Paul M.

The GMC Typhoon is mostly made from basic Jimmy parts but features a Mitsubishi TD06 turbocharged 4.3 liter LB4 V6 that is rated at 280 horsepower and 360 ft-lbs of torque. However, rumor has it that stock examples would dyno at above 300 horsepower to all four wheels.  With less than 5000 Typhoons built in the two years of production (’92-’93) finding a clean one is tricky, but not impossible.
