From Tedd :
Hello everyone. This is my 1970 4 x 4 work truck that was a two wheel drive when I bought it for $350 in 1984.
It was always a worker, but it needed a new cab floor, rockers, cab corners, fender rust repair -- you name it, it needed it.
The truck had a tired 307 engine (144,000 miles), with a 4 speed on floor. Driver's side ~ head-on photo.
Well anyway, it sat parked inside the woods out of the way for a few years because I wasn't using it much, not on the road anyway. I found a '75 4 x 4 GMC with only a rotten cab on it. The engine and drive train were good. It took alot of work to get the 1970 cab to fit the 1975 frame, but it's all together.
I guess you could call this a "Frankenchevy" because it took five trucks to make it! The bed frame came from a 1965 1-ton that I cut down to 6' x 8' (alot of welding). The front bumper I made from some old concrete forms and some other steel I had laying around.
It has a rolled on rustoleum paint job that everyone was talking about awhile back.
Ted also has a 1966 GMC C-20 pickup truck and a 1972 Chevy C-50 dump truck (Bertha) in the Gallery ... WORKING TRUCKS! ~~ Editor
