Re: 70 GMC shop truck,,, maybe.

I'm digging the "white'd out" front end on it! Never see that on a '69 - '72 because they were all chrome.

Re: 70 GMC shop truck,,, maybe.

Fred, just ribbing you about the garage, it looked 10x less cluttered than mine the day I was there. I've had a head cold this last week so I haven't done much to the truck. The parts I got from you are still sitting in the seat. I started stripping paint and bought a welder so I can start on patch panels. I need to finish brake lines and get that crossmember from you before I can think about driving it. Just doing what I can as I can afford it.

I forgot all about the crossmember. Let me see about getting that fine restoration part yanked off there for you this coming weekend.

Re: 70 GMC shop truck,,, maybe.

Well,,, I have been dwelling on this all week. The GMC is a nice little truck, too nice to do what we were planning to do with it. I am going to fix a few minor flaws, do a little tweaking on this and that, give it a good cleaning and send it down the road. It deserves a better owner than I would be to it.

It would be, but I would have to put a Chevrolet front cap on it and it is just too good of an original truck to be cobbling up. I am not above parting/piecing and just making one I want, just hate to do that to one that has survived unmolested all these years.

Re: 70 GMC shop truck,,, maybe.

I hear what you're saying. This certainly screams GMC shop truck though http://www.customclassictrucks.com/f.../photo_01.html

Any way you do it, it certainly can't be wrong!

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????
Hi Fred,
If your not going to use them, would you be willing to sell the rear lowering springs and trac bar? Do you you think I could get that front crossmember this week? I could come out and and assist with the removal if your busy. Also looking for disc brake, 5 lug conversion stuff if you have anything available or any local leads I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks, Calvin

Hey Calvin. Let me see how my schedule looks this week. i am going to be out of town this weekend, grandaughters birthday. The ice is almost gone so i am starting to feel like doing some work around the shop. I will try to track down a good air chisel to knock those rivets out. Sorry for the delay, I have just been a cold, lazy, grumpy old man the last few weeks. Thanks, Fred.

Previous registration, title searches and having good relationships with people in the area we get our trucks from.

Yes, shipping kills more deals. Not just the price but some of the horror stories I have heard about different shipping companies. Where are you located? Thanks, Fred.
