Nice old GMC you have there! Don't see many of them!
A rough GMC production ratio to Chevys was 4 or 5 Chevys to 1 GMC. I only know of one other '55 or '56 in my area, besides the one I found at the crusher to rob some parts from!
Nice GMCs. Thanks for those great photographs.
You are welcome- No one will ever use a "this thread is worthless with out pics" icon on me!!--LOL
Nice truck!!! You did a great job on those gauges. They look great.
I appreciate it. The guage resurface kit was only 20 bucks but it is quite a trick to dissassemble the guages and install the new decals, especially on the odometer tumblers. The bigget hurdle was the temp and fuel guages were not GMC ones. they were Stewart Warner and I altered them to look somewhat original before I could re-face them.
I had a '67 GMC back in high school (not a new one.. I aint that old ). That was back when there was a difference between GMC and Chevy. GMC definatly made a better truck.
I cant imagine driving it now, no power steering, no power brakes, 3 on the tree and 20 gallons of gas right behind the seat. Kinda scary if you stop and think about it.
Your '67 may have had a V-6? Those were cool trucks! I have been driving trucks with fuel tanks in the cab for ahh--since 1979 so the '72 and '55 having them doesn't worry me. My hot rod friends give me grief because I have no desire to "modernize" the steering, brakes and even get rid of the 4 speed. I have installed all new brakes right down to the lines, but it is still what it had in '55. My main reason for not updating is then I won't have the "time machine" feeling when we drive it around. We- yes the wife is driving it too, put 800 miles on it last year with all manual everything! Hopefully we will put a couple thousand on it this year. We find it fun to actually have to work to drive it!
