Sam's 1960 GMC build.

Hey guys, just was looking at some threads on here and thought I should start a build up thread to show my progress on my 60 GMC Here are just a few pics of what I have on my computer right now. As it sits in the drive way right now its in primer. The truck has a very strong running 305 V6. I'm working on building a small block for the truck. The pic of it on the trailer is the day I brought it home. Let me know what you think guys I'm alway open to ideas/ input.

Re: my build thread

Welcome aboard! Glad to see another '60 GMC owner. How come you got rid of the nostril hood? The '60 and '61 GMC hoods are getting harder and harder to come by.....Sweet truck though.

Cool truck, and from AZ. Ive seen a couple trucks with the early hood that looked good, but I have to say the later one is an improvement.
