More truck pictures of my old truck

From Michael :

Hello "Bolts!" I purchased an old truck I had been after for five years. I can't find any production numbers, or how many where made. I know it's rare.

It's a 1964 all stock GMC, 4x4, 1500 3/4-ton, with a PTO winch. The specs are: GMC Truck - DD -- K1502HF10788 / Max 8100 lbs GVW / 142 HP at 3800 RPM / 305-E V-6 / built Oakland Ca.

This old truck has 36,655 original miles. It has a few more since I got it running and drove it 25 miles home. I don't think the truck had seen pavement for 30 years.

There is no really bad rust. The floors are great. The body is straight. It's in unbelievable condition.

I would like to know how many were built. What this truck cost off the show room floor and its value today.

I've lightly sanded and primered it as to see the condition. By the PTO winch it has a numbered tag that says "SABCO, Los Angeles" riveted to the frame. I believe it was a company like Napco that may have installed all the PTO's -- ??????

When I first got the truck, I was crawling around it for a week. I am glad to have found this great web site.

The 86 year old guy that I bought the truck from was a tough old bird from WWII. He had the truck on a 120 acre ranch. It was used to bring wood to his cabin where he raised his family. He was the second owner. I have the highest respect for this guy and appreciate his having fought for my freedom.

Any information you may have about this truck, let me know!
