Re: GM Semis

Careful, that 10 wheeler might be too far gone to save. Notice how it has full length frame reinforcements, and the outer frame rail is bulging out between the crossmember rivets? That can be caused by excessive rust between the rails, and is not fixable. Check it carefully. Then again, at that price you can't complain too much! Lots of good parts.

It was probably a Toro-Flow and was replaced by a gas V-6. Common swap back in the day, pretty much a bolt-in.

Re: GM Semis

If someone buys that and they want to remove that dealer emblem I would love to have it for my collection. I know, cheap plug, not a parts for sale thread. But that is the way for a truck junky... and that one is local!

Re: GM Semis

Yes, in the Piedmont region. Not real near but local on the internet scale. You know one version of where Federalsburg's name comes from is due to it being settled by northern people. Imagine that . Of course, the other is it is where the Federalist Party* met in 1812.

Re: GM Semis

Very cool. I bumped into the town during one of my country drives in my ol truck and said to myself, something important must of happened here for a town to have a name like that.

Re: GM Semis

I've never been. I'd like to check out many Eastern Shore towns I've never been to. It's the first Maryland, so much history. I'd like to spend a weekend or more meandering on roads to see where they go, or until I hit water. I did cedar siding on Tighlman Is. 25 or more years ago, and a large place in St. Micheals. Peck's Place on Pea Neck Point. Pretty Pretentious Place . We;d stay over in Easton and on we got to do some exploring in that area, crab boat builder shops, etc. Very cool and very different from here. Never heard of G & L GMC. Probably a place like Knott & Geisbert that we had nearby until about 10 years ago. They started out selling horse-drawn farm implements, then Oliver tractors and GMC Trucks. Closed on Saturdays, not your cosmopolitan dealership boutique by a long shot

Cool Re: GM Semis

Nice "Crackerbox" Was only in one of these once. And I was cushioning, not driving. That was enough for me. Cool once in a while for a show, yes. An every day work truck, no thanks. This one is "COOOOOOL"...

Re: GM Semis

They are as comfortable as they look. That's for sure. Back when men were men and cologne was perfume

I agree, low production. The heavier the chassis, the less produced. Looks very similar to the " tower of power" promotion vehicle, minus the chrome. The early - mid 60's GMC heavy duty 10 wheelers are in my top 5 all time favorites list.

Re: GM Semis

Now that one is most likely a 6500.

I don't remember details, but in 1967 my dad went down to the Chevy dealer and priced out a new twin screw truck with diesel power. I was all excited, but in the end he stuck with the old binder and Mack we were running.
