Re: June 2008 - Big Mama!

great looking truck... also kind of strange to see a I6 in a 3/4 ton... I would think a 350 or 454 or diesel would be a bit better but hey... its for looks, not function.. and it looks great!

Re: June 2008 - Big Mama!

I'm flattered! Thank you all very much!

Yukon and Oldiron, I especially appreciate your comments. Thanks again.

Screwballl, the old fellow that ordered this truck in '68 bought it to work an apple orchard. I have the original bill of sale, and the build sheet is original. I wanted to do something a little different, and other than the T5 it's stock. All I did was dress the old girl up a little. Even though it's not a commercial truck, it does it's share. I have a couple of pieces of plywood that I put on the bed, and use it just like it's supposed to be used. I am carefull, and I watch the weather, other than that it's still a truck.
