1941 GMC 9314
10 October 2006
From Rod :
Not all women want diamonds. I bought this for my wife for her birthday. It is presently being doctored (motor, tranny, signal and tail / brake lights).
It will be driven as a second vehicle. All parts from The Filling Station -- amazing what they have.
The truck is a 1941 model 9314 GMC. Stock except the motor is 1954 235.
Rod & Jackie Hannah
Rod sent the photos in for the Gallery in September and then was crusing around the site ... and he saw Jackie's truck! So, we've added to this history of this truck as it has been passed on now. As Rod says, "As I was going thru the Gallery, I was amazed to see the same truck. (Jim Smith March 2003) It seems his son didn't get to drive it after all. However, it is in loving hands and will be very well cared for. Thanks for an excellent site. The help and photos are great.

From Jim :
Well, I sure am glad to have found you. My Dad bought this baby for $35 from a farmer who was the second owner. The truck (1941GMC 1/2-ton) was a delivery truck for Goslings of Abbotsford. My Dad bought it to get to and from work when I was five years old and when I turned 30, he gave it to me. He said I had to pass it on to my son. Well, Lucas is now 18 months so I figured I'd better start driving it while I can before Lucas asks for the keys.
I hope the pictures come through I am still getting used to all this tech stuff. Here's a shot of the interior (needs work), the data plate and the General Motors of Canada plate.
Jim, you have a very nice original RARE truck there. Looks like you have the picture sending down just fine - Looking GOOD! ~~ Curator
