Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

I know it won't be an easy find, restoration, or whatever. But it's a goal I'd like to achieve if possible. All the above reasons are just the things that drives me. From the family of good old GM trucks I think something like that would be right for me. A lighter big truck with a unique and very GM style department graduate look. I should have grabber one years ago. I'd probably want to buy a nice example at this point, like the one I showed. I'd probably go on the light side, but a heavier with 6v Detroit would be nice for sure

Your best bet is to watch eBay. They are out there time to time. Usually around $75 each.

Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

5 years or so ago, there was this 1967 GMC 6500 tilt cab on the Riverside CA. Craigslist. It was an equipment (backhoe, ect.) transporter, very low miles. I thought of buying it with a friend who was also interested in it, we were thinking of using it as a car transporter. It was a diesel, but not a Detroit. 478 Toroflow.......

Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

A member has a gasser for sale here few-five years ago I wished I could have bought. I can't remember if it was a tractor or had a body on it. Maybe a car hauler. I see where the Toroflow was fairly common in the lighter trucks.

Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

Believe it or not, the Toroflow was the most popular mid-range diesel in the U.S. during the 60's. There were a lot of them, but when they died they were usually replaced with GMC V-6's or Chevy 366/427's. Around here they were quite rare after the 70's.

Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

Good looking Long Nose 9500 above, but there are a few things interesting there. It looks like a High Hood with the correct Front Grille and Headlight positions, but it has Low Hood Fenders. I believe the fiberglass Tilt Nose has been changed. Also looks like a 1-Piece Windshield which probably means a 7500 Cab. Along with a newer style Front Bumper.

Impressive results though.

I do remember this truck has a V12. I should have pointed that out. Makes it more interesting, right? She's a beast.

Cool interior shot and ride-along.

Wonder what that Lever is for on the right side of the column. It does seem to be some kind of throttle.

Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

I wondered that, too. Possibly manual injection of a booster like alcohol, water, or ???

hand throttle like a farm tractor . . . . that kind of ride try holding your foot on the floor pedal and drive it .

Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

I thought that at first, but around 1:37 when he is about to launch the revs go up without moving the lever. But I'm sure you're right. Just like a tractor it still has a foot pedal. Looks like he uses lever to set idle up just part way during staging, then the pedal off the line, once he mashes it the lever comes down to wide open and that's the control for the rest of the pull. Just uses pedal for control at launch... and transporting around.
