Re: Abandoned, neglected square body trucks rotting away...

This 55 GMC is no longer setting and rotting in my hoard. I sold it to a guy in Wisconsin. He showed up with a solid cab he had picked up out in the panhandle and a 347 engine. We put the engine in the back of his suburban and placed the cab on top of the GMC bed. the GMC has a 287 Pontiac and stick. It runs and drove up on the trailer. I wonder if he had any problems on the way back to Wisconsin?

Re: Abandoned, neglected square body trucks rotting away...

I like the GMC trucks. they have rear leaf springs. My daily for the past 4 years has been a 66 GMC. its a 1/2 ton with a 250 six SM 420 four speed and Dana 44 with 336 gears. It was on a rollback headed to the scrapper when I got it. Put on a mediocre front cap and fixed the brakes , clean carb and convert to electronic ignition. and I use it hard. It pulls trailers and hauls stuff no trouble.
