Re: April 2016 ToTM

Well here's another GMC--- has there really only been two entries so far? We got this '55 GMC 100 in 2009 as an escapee from scrap. It hadn't run since 1997. Got it running but it was two more years before it was titled in my name.

Full brake system is new, including e-brake system. I converted it to electric wipers and washers added from a '97 Dodge caravan. New tires in 2013 are mounted on the original wheels from my 1970 GMC Jimmy with early 1990's S-15 hubcaps and trim rings. A bunch of '64 Chevy pickup parts went into it also. Heater box was modified to accept 70's heater motors. Radiator carriage was torched out beyond rebuilding so I built one from scratch and used the 1964 radiator.

Powered by the mid-sixties Chevy 230 I-6 that was in it when I got it, SM420 transmission.

Pics speak better than description.

1-First day owned
2-In the back yard
3-Earning it's keep hauling blizzard debris
4-Won an "Ugly Truck" contest last September
5-Legal year of vehicle plates approved by the state DMV recently.
