From Mike :

My old 1948 GMC now has new rubber and tubes all the way around with 2 spares wheels and tires, brakes and brake lines, wheel bearings, rebuilt 1956 248CID engine, 5 speed trans w/OD Clark 205VO.

I replaced the gas tank, mirrors, battery. I rebuilt the gauges, upholstered seat, door panels.

I repaired lights, under dash wiring, deluxe heater and defroster and did some body work.

The tires are 7.50 x 17 in front and 8.00 x 18 duals in rear with spares for each. New front stake rack for bed

From Mike:

            My latest project is this old truck. It's a 1948 GMC FC 250 (1 Ton dually) and I found it in Cottonwood, California. We moved it to Paradise CA. Here's a picture of the interior.

            I just got these in the nick of time. The truck was headed for the crusher! The GMC 248 engine [ view one / view two ] was rescued from the scrap metal yard, headed for the shredder!

            I will be putting the two pieces together. Hope to have it done by Spring 2006.

            Anybody have any parts to donate? I'm on a tight budget.
