    It's an early 1947 which looks like the 46, but it is titled as a 1947 GMC. This is the one ton version with a Buick 455.

    Frenched duel 59 caddy tail lights, 49-50 olds headlight treatment. And way low....

    by the way...I got my mirrors from a mid-80's Chevy pick-em-up truck. They're bigger, but they fit very well on the panel...and I've got NO BLINDSPOTS!!!:cool:

    I'm an old truck driver, and I have this need to see just what's comin' up from behind. :eek::eek::eek:

    Oh wow! Old memories! I bought my first panel truck in 1977 when i was 15. It was a late 47. I fixed it up and drove it to CA. in 81 when I was in the Navy. Some a holes set it on fire on base.I bought my 53 Suburban in 83 as a rolling shell, switched everything out, drove it in primer for 13 years restored it in 99. Yes, this is the same one you posted. That picture was from ebay. I sold it to a flipper for 16.5 cash and I heard he flipped it for 20. I owned it for 23 years and built that thing from the ground up. It had a 261 ,4 barrel, Fentons ,Smitty's 4 speed Saginaw. original susp. I sold it to finance my 69 Roadrunner resto. I also have a really cool original picture of the panel truck my grandfather had that was my original inspiration to own one. I will post it when I get it scanned.This truck was built from parts from 30 different trucks. I painted it myself. It took a month to buff out all the orange peel.

    Dan thats nice...Not fair but still nice.

    The one you put me on to in N.C. didn't pan out. The vehicle was offered, I think, at around 2500.00. I think the vehicle has been sitting outdoors in primer for the last year. Now they decide they want 4000.00.

    Plans are 454/th350, posi rear, light gear (2.70s?) Trailblazer seats, fixing the stupid holes in the side...blue. It will be my soon to be 14 year old's rod.

    I just scored this 65 yesterday. It's got a straight 6 in it with, I think, a dana rear.

    Does anyone know what rear will be the easiest swap for long distance cruizin?

    If it has a Dana I'd look to just swap gears. If it has an Eaton rear (likely) swap to a Dana or a 14-bolt.

    This one belongs to a friend Bill Harrison. It is an original Canadian Army unit.

    I hope to have these 2 in the next month or so. 50 and 51 panels. The white one under the tarp was found in a warehouse, it had been there for over 25 years. The body is rust free. The guy who has it now put it on a newer Chev 4x4 frame. It is not cut up or modified at all. All body panels are very nice. The blue one has some rust but it is very restorable. He also has tons of rust free front fenders, hoods and doors with the package deal. 350 4 bolt main motor and a trans with it. S10 frame, newer Malibu clip, rear ends, and more. The blue one has a factory sway bar still under it. The white ones original frame has a mustang 11 front in it and a 10 bolt rear.
    I was thinking of slamming the white one and making a slammed trailer out of the blue one. I thought of using a front grille, and maybe 6" of the front fenders and hood and welding it on the firewall. Could put both on air ride and do the same paint on both. Satin black with scallops on both, wide whites. It would make a unique ride.

    Hi...does anyone know of a chopped truck that we could hire for a TV commercial...ideally in black.

    We would obviously pay for the trucks usage.

    You can email me at donaldmtaylor@mac.com

    Many thanks for your time

    I like them full-figured jobs. Been wanting one for about 20 years now, still can't justify it, and really don't have any room anyway.

    Passed on a 58 1/2 ton panel about 6 months ago. No room to park/build/store.
