From Mike:

     Just purchased a 1949 GMC 100 stepside. This is a FC102 1/2-ton longbed in great condition. I have already started ordering parts from links found in your site.

     It hadn't been on the road since 1993. Had a green sedan seat in the cab held in with bungee cords. The wood long bed was rotted out and there were four different types of tires on the truck. Some gauges worked, others didn't. Was evidence of old rust and some cab patch panels had already been installed. One bonus was that a 261 Chevy engine was already installed and sounded strong.

     Truck needed lots of TLC and an obvious rebuilding. I decided that I would fix the truck up to be a weekend driver, fix the mechanical items, redo the interior and get it painted. I didn't want a show truck, I wanted a "fun" truck.
