Re: GM Semis

What a great thread. Pains me that there are so many tandem tractor unit 1950's Fords out there while precious few Chevys survived.

Re: GM Semis

Yeah, I wonder. Does that say powered by 353? Detroit 3-53? Doesn't look like there's a dash after the 3. Maybe that's the generator power supply, or maybe diesel-electric experimental?? I'm still guessin'

Re: GM Semis

I'm thinking a show truck for GMC during the mid 60's. Chroming steelies is a lost art!

That thing would be cool if it had a 5th wheel.

Re: GM Semis

It looks that way by the rubber on it, too. Wouldn't you love to have that one? I don't know anything about it. Just found the picture looking for Chevy fire trucks

I'm not sure if this has been shown. I just saved it, too

Re: GM Semis

Love it. A V8 emblem would really set it off. Not that GMC 6s aren't cool.

Re: GM Semis

Yep! That thing is well equipped. Has the factory stake body, too. It could still have had the panoramic window added, but that is a very deluxe truck

I may have shown this truck earlier in this thread. I lost the picture when another laptop died and recently came across it again online. I absolutely love this truck. It was for sale in Wheels Of Time mag (ATHS) quite a few years ago and I was sad to not be able to consider buying. Even back then I felt it was very cheap for as nice as it is. The owner was asking $7,500 ten or more years ago. I'd put this thing up against all the li'l shortbeds at a show. I wonder where it is now

Funny thing a lot of the Chevy 6X2 trailing axle tandems did use Hendrickson rear suspension. They used the Chevy or Eaton built 14,000# drive axle in front with a dead axle in the rear position. The Hendrickson beam suspension worked well in those applications, it was less likely to 'hang' the drive axle on uneven terrain than a 4 leaf tandem suspension. That having been said, I think the truck in the picture is 'twin screw' judging by the lug tires on both rear axles.

Re: GM Semis

I agree Tim, that Green Dump is one of the nicest examples of a 9500 anywhere.

If I had it I would even put it to work, lol.

Just selected loads though in nice weather only.

Re: GM Semis

Me too. Just a handy chore truck. A load of driveway stone would just set it off, make the motor sound better
