More pictures of my old truck

From Chip :

Here's the story about me and my Stovebolt.

This all started when my Father-in-law sent me a picture of a 1965 GMC and asked me if I wanted to buy it. At first I told him no, because I have always been a big fan of the 1967-72 trucks. Plus, I already have a 1971 that I was currently working on.

But, the more I looked at the picture, the more I wanted the truck.

So one weekend I left for North Carolina ... and I am now the proud owner of a 1965 GMC short box.

After I got the truck home, I was looking in the glove box and found a folder that held all of  the paper work. It originally was bought by Bellsouth Telephone.

The truck does need some work, but it is in good shape for the year.

Thanks for letting me tell my story.


Chip, that's a nice beginning! We expect to hear more and see more postings as you progress! And hey! We can add the '71 in here, too! ~ Editor
