1951 2-Ton Flatbed
Hello, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for this site. It
is a source of nearly boundless entertainment and information, second to none!
I am not sure what has been more effective, The Swap Meet or the Gallery for the positive remarks and interest in my Old Truck. I have received increasingly more email regarding this vehicle in the last month than at any time previously. I have even had an interested party (who had searched this site for flatbed trucks) actually SHOW UP at my shop (where the truck is stored) to have a look-see and even fire it up!
It is good to see that there is still a quantifiable interest in these trucks (med. duty especially). I have grown more fond of my truck as opportunities have presented themselves to actually use this vehicle for work and personal use. I have decided to remove the truck from the swap meet and not offer it for sale for the foreseeable future. I am going to spend some time figuring out how to proceed with this project. In the meantime, I have been able to secure a storage site that will be more or less permanent, providing me greater flexability in making repairs and possibly, in the near future, restoration.
I have enclosed two different photos of the '51 GMC. I thought it was time for a change :-) . I couldn't decide which one I liked better. Please post one or both as you feel appropiate.
For those who would like to see more pics and info, please come visit.
As far as turning heads, I couldn't agree with you more! When I drive this truck anywhere, people wave and stare, especially older folks. I do enjoy that aspect of Old Trucks, you can always count on it for a conversation starter. Or how someboby's grandfather had a truck just like that ....You gotta love it!
