From Rolo :

         Hi! I'm 17 and I have a 1971 GMC 350/350 3/4-ton, Veronica. The one on the right is mine. The one on the left is my Dad's 1972 Chevy 1-Ton Dually.

        I have always wanted one of these trucks. I first saw one when I was nine and fell in love. I told my Dad to buy me one, which he did in August of 2005. He says he got it for $1500 but I don't know if he's telling me the truth. But I didn't know he did that until my 16th birthday in September 2006. So, I've had her almost two years now.

        The truck use to have a smb 400 which I miss. It is in really good condition for being 36 years old.

        Here are some things we have done to it so far. We swapped motors. I have a 350 for now but I'm saving for a 454. When I first had the truck, I cut the driveshaft in half trying to show off. That didn't work out too well. It had the wrong driveshaft in it at that time.

        We are currently doing a brake job and putting in a new fly wheel. It has been a really good truck and I love it and won't ever get rid of it. I love how she is so loud that I set car alarms off at my high school parking lot. My record is six going down -- I am trying to beat it.

        We are currently looking for a '67 Chevy truck with small back window for a Farther and Son project.

        Great web site. Love all of the trucks on it.


        In February 2008, Rolo added his 1970 GMC 3/4-Ton to the Gallery. In August 2007, he added another 1971 -- a Chevy C-20. ~~ Editor
