TOTM June 2010

The theme for our Truck of the Month (TOTM) contest this month is:

Step Up to Life!!

To be an eligible for this month’s contest
  • Open to all year stepside trucks.
  • The must be together and able to move on its own power.
  • The truck has to be licensed for street use.
  • If a truck was selected as a 2008/2009 TOTM winner then you are ineligible. If you were nominated but were not selected as a TOTM winner then you may be nominated and compete in this month's category.
To Nominate:

You or someone else may nominate the vehicle. The nominee must be a board member and the current owner of the truck. Once you decide on who you wish to nominate, just add your nomination to this thread. We will need two pictures minimum (at least one full view of the vehicle) with/for the nomination as well as the owner’s board name, the year of the truck, and any other specs of the truck (interior details, engine/drive train specs) that you may want to provide.

Nominees will run through May 23. The first 15 nominees that meet the criteria will participate in the contest. I will PM the nominees to get any additional data or pictures if they have not already been provided. I normally use 1 picture showing a good front-side view and 1 with a rear view of the vehicle in the voting threads. If the owner has a preferred picture they want used in the contest, please let me know in a PM. You can PM me for an e-mail address in case anyone has problems resizing the pictures for the board. A Poll Thread will be set up in this board area and an announcement will be posted on the Discussion Boards to notify all of the voting. The Poll will start to run on May 24 and will run until the morning of June 1st. The official announcement of the winner will be on the afternoon of May 1st. The announcement of this month’s TOTM winner will be posted through the General Discussion Board area.

So step on up and let’s see those sweet ole stepsides!.

Re: TOTM June 2010

While there are many trucks that should be nominated, I'll nominate markeb01's 1960 GMC, not only for his detailed work, but for his contribution to helping others on this site. It's the man and his truck combo that get's my vote!
The drivetrain is a Targetmaster 350, with a Centerforce clutch and flywheel backed by a Richmond 4 speed. The rear axle is the original Dana 44 with 4.09 gears, covered with an original Mr. Gasket heavy wall chrome rear end cover. Front suspension is 1975 C10. The truck has power steering and brakes, discs up front, and cruise control. No air and no radio. The engine runs a Pete Jackson noisy gear drive.

Re: TOTM June 2010

I nominate myself. Here's my '49. All original, except for one repaint in 1965. I have documentation for truck that goes back to 1949. Original owner was from Warrensburg, MO and owned it from 1949 to 1965. I spoke with his 95 y/o widow about 11 years ago. It took her a few minutes, but she did remember my truck. She said her husband was a body shop man and bought the truck for his business. Told me he had wood side panels on the bed and everything. Second owner was from Chillicothe, MO and owned it til his widow sold it in 1987. Spoke with her, too. My nephew bought it in '87 and sold it to me in '97. Truck still has the MFA (Missouri Farmers Assoc) oil change sticker in the door jamb- was supposed to be changed on Sept 27, 1972. Not sure if it was or not. Sorry to be so long winded, but I loove my truck and I'm proud of it and its history.

EDIT** Actually, I think the truck in the picture in this link is my truck: It's in the bottom picture on page 51.

The original owner was JH Carder, and his wife told me that he had his business name painted on the side boards, just like the one in the picture. I'm fairly certain that the truck in this picture is my '49. How's that for history?
