70 GMC shop truck,,, maybe.

Ok, cut a deal on this very low optioned 70 GMC stepside last weekend. 6 cylinder, three on the tree, manual drums and manual steering. Radio delete and no hole for the antannae in the cowl. It has some patching done on it but has not been butchered. I am thinking shop truck for the business, but we all know how I get when someone wants one of my trucks more than I do. Maybe drop it about three in front, four in rear (already have the springs and trac bar) set of 235 75 15 radials, clean it up and drive the piss out of it. Ideas????

Re: 70 GMC shop truck,,, maybe.

Go ahead and make some plans for it and start to like it a little bit, that always makes the people seem to come out and want to look when I have something I like and want to drive a little while. When I like one it is like a buyer magnet, not always a money maker but a buyers magnet none the less. Jim

Hey Tom. I am going to try and spend Saturday just sorting ods and ends out on it, try and impose my will on it. Trying to chase down a good set of used radials among other things.

After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: 70 GMC shop truck,,, maybe.

Love the 4 eyes!! I have a 70 myself. Does it still have the radio delete plate and if so would you want to let it go? Crazy question I know. Good looking truck, for sure name it White Out like sKnYnPpY mentioned.

ALSO one more thing I am trying to debunk this myth to see if it is true. So the legend says all 70-72 GMCs 6 cyl got coils, does yours have coils?

Hey Jason. Yes, the radio delete is still there but I am not looking to sell it. I appreciate you asking. It is coil spring rear suspension. Thanks, Fred.

That's very similar to my 70 Gmc I found back in the day that I still have now. Pretty cool! True work horse.

Re: 70 GMC shop truck,,, maybe.

If I bought that dude I'd drop a 396 and 4 speed in it and drive the wheels off of it. I might even upgrade the brakes.

Re: 70 GMC shop truck,,, maybe.

I had a 71 Gmc swb step that was close to this. Originally same color blue interior and exterior was blue as well. 6 cyl 3 ott manual disc brakes manual steering radio delete but it had the 7 gauge inst panel. Dad like charcoal grey metallic so he painted it that color and i changed interior to black for him. I installed chrome bumpers front and rear and a set of stainless dog dish caps i found here on the forum. Swapped the 3.73 to a 3.08 (the 3.73 is in my 72 swb step with a 350/ 700r4.) The gmc had coils in back too. I wishe i would have talked him into painting it the stock med blue!
