From Terry :

           Here is my 1952 GMC 5-window 1/2-ton. I bought it in South Carolina and had it it shipped to Pennsylvania the end of August. The guy I bought it from (he can remember riding in it as a small child up and down the roads between the blueberry trees) told me his Grandfather bought it new for his blueberry farm in Michigan.

           The truck has a 1971 Nova 6 cylinder with a Powerglide! It also has original Owner's Manual and keys.

           I'm new to the Bolt. I learned to drive in a Forest Green 1949 Chevy 1/2-ton. I've been looking for another ever since. I had been cruising eBay for years! I was cruising the web and I found it. It wasn't running, but a sharp truck none the less. The timing was less than perfect, as I was laid off from my job at the time. But I fell for it and I had some money saved .... and the wife AND daughter said BUY IT !! So, I did ...just from the pictures. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it!

           I feel like a kid again!

           Does anyone know what changes they made in 1952?
