More pictures of my old truck

From Jeff :

I bought this old GMC truck in 1980 for $400 when I was living in Cut Bank, Montana. I had it parked for almost 27 years in storage before I started fixing it up and got it running.

My plans are to restore it as near to original as I can. Right now, it's a daily driver for me here in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

This vintage truck has the original 228 cubic inch inline 6 with about 38,000 miles on it. It is in very good shape and not much has been changed on it.

So far, I have had to re-build all four brakes and the front end. I've also done lots of tinkering with the timing, distributor, carburetor and setting the valves. The gal's a driver, day in and day out!

Looking forward to using Stovebolt in my labor of love...

Jeff D. Nelson
