Here I am at 6 with my Grandpa's 1970 GMC and one of our ranch helpers. 44 years later and I just brought the truck home to get her going again. Past and present.

That's really cool to see. Sometimes it's hard to imagine that these old trucks had a whole lifetime of use before they ended up with you if you don't know their history. That's the case with my truck.

Re: Vintage picture thread

Love the truck and the story nrpolo! I donít have a vintage pic of my truck but I do have some of its history. I was really lucky to find a bunch of paperwork in my truck. The used car lot I bought it off of didnít bother to clean it out (or clean it at all for that matter). It was originally ordered by Terminex of San Francisco after itís duty with them was complete it was sold to a guy who lived on the peninsula. The police report was still in it showing it was stolen and recovered in the early 80s. The ignition is still all bent up from this experience. The owner before me had local resteraunts and used the truck for picking up ingredients at farmers markets and light construction. Not as cool as growing up with it but neat to be able to tie some of the history to it.

I would check the vin, it appears to be a '69, but basically the same as a '70

Re: Vintage picture thread

Found these on my Grand Father's slides. Most are in Mexico where my Dad, Uncles and Pappy traveled to frequently.....1973-1976. Fairly safe in those days! Dad's truck is a 1972 K10 shorty with a 4 speed. I still have it and will start restoring it soon.

He did indeed.....some pos stole that winch from him in the mid 80's when he had it parked at his place of work for a few days. Unfortunately that bumper met it's demise against two elk one year as well....I'd like to replace both at some point.

Re: Vintage picture thread

And another. Circa 1975. The truck must have belonged to a friend of the neighbor across the street. I don't recall who owned the car or even what it is. Packard?

Re: Vintage picture thread

Patch, looks like the truck runs 16" tires. Nice option on a Custom Deluxe SWB.
