More truck pictures in Photobucket!

From Steve :

I had been searching for awhile to find a project when my wife found this Advance Design GMC truck in our local paper. The couple that owned it had to down size from their farm and bought a house with a two-car garage.

After a couple of years of parking outside, the wife wanted her side of the garage. That's when they decided to put it up for sale.

My wife and I went to look at it, and found it to be in great shape and running. For my 40th birthday, my wife bought me the truck. I drove the truck onto the trailer to get it home. We unloaded it and parked it in my garage.

For now, my plans are to keep the truck mostly stock and to have it ready for next summer.

As long as I can remember, I have always been a fan of these trucks. My Dad used to have a '66 that he drove as a work truck, and my Brother had a '54 back in the day as well.

This classic truck has only 20,000 original miles. That is why I am going to keep it stock. I just finished reinstalling all the glass and plan on putting the truck outside so I can finish the box.

I have posted pictures on Photobucket.

Neat project -- it will make a very nice driver. Great to have those extra pix on Photobucket! Steve also has another truck that I will submit next month. ~ J. Lucas, Curator
