1972 GMC 1500 Pickup Truck
From Donald :
Hi! This is my 1972 GMC 1500 pickup truck. It has the stock 307 v8. The truck has never been painted. It is factory bronze with black interior. It still has turbo hydramatic factory air.
The truck was given to me by my Father-in-law who was the second owner. He bought it from his best friend back in 1980. His friend bought it new in 1972 at Superior on the West Bank in Louisiana. It still has a bumper that is the old style where the dealer stamped its name in it.
The truck has some rust in cab corners and rockers. The floors are good. The bed is good. The tailgate is shot.
My plans for the truck are to redo the body stock, along with the interior but up date the drive line with a 350 and 700r4 trans. I will need to replace some metal rockers, cab corners, door skins. Then I'll drive the snot out of it when it is done.
I would love to find a 1966 Chevy Fleetside to restore. I love the '66 body. They are just really hard to find here -- as far as I know.
Thanks for the great site.
