66 gmc

long time lurker. i recently bought a 66 gmc longbed big back window. its a franken truck. its got 6 lug front suspension with 3/4 ton springs. rear is a 3/4 ton rear end with suposedly 4:10 gears. i bought a swb frame from borris at street machinery to put the cab on. thinking of doing a 1/2 chevy 1/2 gmc truck. basicaly chevy grille and tailgate with gmc trim and dash. is that sacrilegious? gonna be a long fun journey.

Factory power brakes- cool.
It's your truck. Fix it like you want it.

Re: 66 gmc

I agree....build your truck the way you want it. When swapping frames, first make sure there will not be any legal issues with your local DMV regarding having a cab and frame with different VIN's.

No reproduced GMC hoods. The Chevy hoods were just released not too long ago.
