looks much better without the old navy on the side. I dig it.
It was hard to remove Old Navy from it. It was a great conversation starter. I have met a-lot of people by them just coming up and asking about the doors. Guess ill have to be social now! NAH.
Coleman aircraft towing tractors. They were used for moving B-47s and KC-97s. They had big Buda inline six engines. I was an Air Force mechanic, 47151. They didn't have a steering wheel at each end. The cab was made fron Chevrolet sheet metal. I actually worked on them when I was younger and stronger. They used Group 12 batterys that you had to lift up to the cab. A group 12 battery was about the size of a wooden apple box but much heavier.
I can now offically post to this thread...It's a pretty rust free & straight 54 GMC (orig green on green) 4spd with an open driveline. It's gonna need a little drop, new motor, rear fenders, front and rear bumpers, new wheels/ tires, new tires, etc. I'm gonna put a want ad up for these items cause I know this isn't the thread to do it. Here's right after I picked it up:
This is a pretty sweet ride, I really like the wheels, anybody know what they are?
This thread is awesome, I love all these trucks, definitely going try and pick one of these up for my first project some day!
Wow wow wow wow might be my favorite ad ever perfect in my eyes
Murch---supreme/with custom tires from HURST
gump-- it has a 4inch chop and a 6inch stretch
Much appreciated, really like them, definitely going to use a set of those on something someday!
3.5 years later, different truck, i really need to weld up some bumpers
Nerf bars would look good on that. Simple out back. Maybe thin and low, contoured around the grill. That would look good with the chrome reverse.
