FOUND THIS...IT WAS A POOR COPY OF A BAD COPY,BUT A REAL KICK ,NONE THE LESS.....GOD BLESS MICKEY!!
If i remember correctly i read an old article on the British UK Holden owners club website that the 1960 FB StationWagon went to England and is also still with the same owner there.
V6's ??? As far as I know the options back in the day were 6-in-line or V8.
All those emblems on those hood sides are V-6's 305" gas hogs as I remember. V-8's were pretty rare for those in my area.
Like Jimmy Six said, these were big old V-6s; they started at 305 cubic inches for the pickups, and for commercial truck they got much bigger. They had a boxcar load of low end torque, but were heavy and thirsty.

You could even "Double Your Pleasure" for twice the fun & Half the mileage.........
Rootie...Who is in the midget ??
The GMC 702, along with Ford's 534, IH's 549FTV and the Hall-Scott 1091 were truly the gasoline engine's last gasp in fire service applications. The Hall-Scott, often straight-piped, put out a 3-foot long flame when in pump gear.
Looks like Ted Parker in the 54
Belmont Sanchez '53 Stude...a true Bonneville icon. (First door-slammer over 200 MPH.)
A little later; 230 MPH.
That's 1958, Guys. That Stude is a five tear old car! Sanchez caught on fast...everybody else followed!
Chet Herbert used to advertise in HRM... "Any car, any grind, $35".
Dial the number, and talk to Chet himself.
Thom McAn shoe store, haven't seen one of those in a while.
This one was new to me:
Used in buses, fire trucks, pumps, etc. Since it was based on the V-6, it was a 60° V-8 and had a balance shaft. There’s one on YouTube, search for GMC 637.
