More pictures of my old truck

From Greg :

This is a recently completed custom restoration of a 1956 GMC truck.

I found my old GMC online and endured a long negotiation process before finally acquiring it. It is sporting a 1957 Chevy grille and includes: 350 V-8 with Muncie 4- speed, competition cam., Edelbrock manifold and carburetor, '79 frame, disc brakes, power steering, Flowmaster exhaust, Bell Tech spindles, 12 bolt rear end, Cragar wheels and BFG tires.

The new paint is Tangerine Orange and white with gray cloth bucket seats and gray accents. It also has a custom aluminum fuel tank, Sunpro gauges, new bed wood that's been treated with teak oil, a tilt column, and lots of powder coating. Everything is either new, or has been rebuilt. It's a very nice driver.

It's the most beautiful truck in the world to me. Hope you like it, too.
