A 'virtual garage' of antique Chevy & GMC trucks from around the World
1961 GMC 1-Ton Truck

From Walt :
Got my big girl home this month. It is a 1961 GMC. I thought the previous owner said it was a 1964.
We had an interesting drive home. I was goin' down the road about 35 mph, 'cause the switch for the rear end is broke -- so it's stuck in low for now. Anyway, the whole front end of the truck starts shakin' like crazy. Did it to me twice. What's up with that??
I got a good right side door with good glass.The door on it won't shut and is held with a bungee cord as you can see in the pics. I also got a good switch for the axle and a gas pedal and brake pedal cover.
Not sure of the size of the motor but its a V-6.Everything in it works, even the heater and wipers. The original turn signal even works. Just gotta fix the shake in the front end and the 2 speed switch and it's good to go.
I think the truck has the wrong hood on it. Tell me what ya think.
Like I said the drive home was interesting. Everything rattlin' on the gravel road and everything growlin' on the paved road. Had fun though. I took my nine year old son for a ride around the block and he loved it.
Here is a pic of the two big uns. And some more pictures on my Webshots account.
Yep, got two now. The 1941 Chevy 3/4-Ton truck is already in the Gallery. This one is for work to haul fence material.
