YEA for Russ. One of it seems very few '57 owners that put the side badges on the correct way.

These pics aren't my truck. It was for sale locally awhile ago and I was so taken by it I kept the pictures. Now I wish I'd built my truck more like this than the Corvette IFS, over-the-top LS engine, etc route I took. Oh well, I'll just have to build another one!!:lol:

Colour is not stock, but other wise it's a pretty stock 1959 GMC.

Canadian truck, so a 235 I6, with 3 on the tree.

I found a factory Sun tach for the dash and eventually had modern electronic guts installed in the tach to make it work. Deluxe heater and electric wipers too!

Yes it is..... Funny story..... I took that picture for Classic Trucks magazine in my father's hay field during a drought year. When the magazine came out the following spring all my father said was" Crappy Hay crop"!

Yeah, she really is pretty, huh? I don't know if it has stock suspension on a dropped axle or some kind of IFS but whatever it looks very nice. Just a hunch but I kinda think it's on lowered springs and a dropped axle.
