From Roland :

I think I have an addiction for the 1967-1972 GM trucks.

Here's my latest truck. It is a 1972 Chevy. I've sold the 1971 white Chevy and 1970 GMC 4 x 4.

This truck was originally a two wheel drive 1/2-ton truck. It is now a 1-ton, 4 x 4 (I bought it that way). It has a 14 bolt rear end limited slip from a 1953-59 Chevy truck. The front end is a 12 bolt but I am not sure what the gear ratio is.

I found this from on a local web site called . I wanted this truck but didn't have the money. So I emailed the guy and asked if he wanted to trade for a 1994 GMC Yukon that my Grandpa had used as a farm truck. A couple days later, he emailed me back and so on. Now I've got the truck.

On the cab, where the truck's gross weight is, it says 5200 (something like that). I found out that the rear end is out of a 1953-59 Chev and the front end has dic brakes.

So I think the guy who converted it to 4 wheel drive just put the body on a 4 x 4 chassis. I ran the VIN to make sure it was a C-10 and it checked out that it was orginally a 2wd C-10.

So far, I've fixed the exhaust, rear brakes with brand new drums, wheel cylinders, and shoes. That cost $600 all together. I installed a newer four core radiator and added rear LED bulbs with clear lenses.

The engine has a 383 Stroker with a 350 transmission. It also has rear air bags.

When I first got the truck, it had 38 inch super swampers that I traded for 35 S. It has a 6 inch lift.

This truck is my daily driver / play truck. Thing I plan to do in the near feature are cab lights / new bumper/grille and tint the windows.
