Howdy guys, long time no see haha. I have been tinkering here and there on the federal and have it back into decent shape though I need to redo some of my hackjob wiring and lap the valves, seats and replace the manifold and head gaskets. But thats not what this thread is about.

I just got my hands on my first stovebolt truck, and it just so happens to be a Big Bolt, my favorite type of truck. I saw it in craigslist a few weeks ago and kinda glanced over it, figuring that when I had money it would be gone. Well, low and behold there it still was. So I called the guy up and arranged to pick it up. Granted it is very rough, the engine is locked up and the floor is pretty much nonexistent but I figure I did halfway decent at 300 bucks when it came with an entire set of 8.25 by 20 tires to replace the ones that are on it.

So, how did I do guys?

the truck itself

Drivers side floor

passenger side floor, what there is left of it anyway.

the bumper grille and hood are worth what you paid. everything else is extra.

The bumper isnt all that straight, nothing I cant fix though. The hood leaves alot to be desired but I can also fix that. The grill however is perfect. I do have a question though, are GMC fenders and Chevy fenders the same?

If you ever dissemble the grille, I need to copy the side and center brackets.

No updates so far. Havent really had the time to tinker with it. The weather has been so poor and frankly, the drive just isnt there anymore.

Nice Federal. Is that a Hercules engine in there? On your GMC, is the grille supported in the center with one bracket or 2 brackets, one on each side?

Thanks,

Ed
