"The Peach" 1967 GMC Short Stepside

Picked up a new truck, 67 gmc short bed stepside, came from Georgia hence the name "The Peach"

Inline 250 Straight six (2500 miles on it)
Three on the tree, new clutch and seals
Dana 44 rear end with 3.54 gears open rear end
6 lug truck, leaf springs in the back
Manual drum brakes and manual steering (Yikes the brakes are scary)

Truck is relatively straight, it looks like a older restoration, has some rust issues but nothing worse than what I saw locally, plan is to give it power disk brakes, power steering conversion and new paint, and let my mom drive it. I'm more of a squarebody guy so this will be a new learning curve for me, but I am excited that I don't have to smog this truck, and have a 2wd stepper!

Pictures:






I have already done a few things to it such as: Re tuned the Carb was running VERY rich before, adjusted both doors so no more slamming is required, adjusted the hood to close better, cleaned out the interior, and adjusted the brakes and wheel bearings. This thing is scary to stop, so first order of business is to put power disk brakes on immediately, power steering then its off to paint and body, will be repainted the same color. The engine and transmission run excellent. Not too excited about finding out it had rear leaf springs...but I saw some lowering leaf springs (the truck will receive a mild drop).

Will keep this thread updates, and will take more pictures soon.

Re: "The Peach" 1967 GMC Short Stepside

Any suggestions for a good quality power disk brake kit?

Re: "The Peach" 1967 GMC Short Stepside

Alright I finally got it registered about a month ago(what a disaster!) and I have just been driving it around to get a feel for it and see what really needs to be replaced/upgraded. So today I decided to pull the front clip off to replace the rusty core support and some other pieces.

Here is what it looked like before since photobucket nerfed the pictures.



I will clean and paint the frame before I re assemble everything.
