From Jeremy :

Hello everyone! I just wanted to add a new truck to the Gallery. This is a 1965 GMC 1000 series. It has a 235 inline six with an old unsynchronized three speed. Originally it was a three on the tree that has been moved to the floor. It is flair side with a long bed.

So here’s the story behind my purchase.  One of my earliest memories as a child was riding around in my Dad’s 1965 Chevy c-10. I always remember taking trips to my Grandparent’s house with Mom on one side and Dad on the other.

My Dad is a mechanic and was always doing something to that truck. In 2001 my Dad got rid of his truck to help pay for repairs to another vehicle. I know that he really did not want to let it go at that time.

Well, over the next few years my Mother got sick, and in August of 2008 she passed away at age 51. It has been really hard on my Dad, but it has definitely brought us closer as a family.

I have known for a while that I wanted to by an older truck to restore and drive around town, but now it has taken on more significance as I wanted to find something that my Dad and I can work on together.

As I began to look around for a project, I found this truck on Craigslist on Christmas Day. The irony was that it just so happened to be the same year as the truck I remember as a child. The guy made me a great deal on it (I can’t believe he let it go for $1500), and I drove it home on New Year’s Day.

It is drivable as is, but it definitely needs some work done. The guy I bought it from left it sitting for the last five years, but overall it is in great shape. It needs some body work here and there and it definitely needs a fresh coat of paint. It does not have a lot of rust.

The engine had been rebuilt by a previous owner. After I fix the vacuum advance problem, it should purr like a kitten.

My Dad and I have kicked around various ideas to update the truck whether it be power brakes or maybe putting in a TH350 so that my wife can drive it if she ever gets the urge.

I look forward to working on the truck and picking the brain of all my fellow Bolters out there that definitely know more on the subject than my little simple mind.
