Hi wanted to reach out to see if anybody knows of other trucks like mine...feeling a bit lonely...lol

I have a GMC 1 ton stake body (250 engine) with a single axle and see online in google photo's a blue one and a red one and my green one.

There seems to be a few more duel axles but no single axle trucks. Does anyone have or know others that have the same truck.

Thanks

George, it is not recommended to publish your phone number in an open public forum. Spammers have a field day with it.

Stovebolt.com has a specific forum for 1 tons. I will move this thread there later today. Stop by the Welcome Center and introduce yourself.

I assume you mean "dual wheel", not "duel axle", right? Your truck has been modified (and the weight carrying capacity seriously compromised) by somebody fitting aftermarket wheels to it. It would have probably been sold originally with 18" tube type tires on split rims with dual wheels on the rear axle, and somebody thought they were making it safer by using alloy wheels intended for a 3/4 ton truck. It's a good-looking truck, but don't expect those wheels and tires to carry anywhere near the weight the bed and suspension system was designed to haul.

Nice 5-Window Cab truck. I like the stakebed. It could have been originally equipped with single rear wheels. And a stakebed. And 17" wheels.

My 51 GMC was sold new with no bed and a surplus military stake bed was fit at the time.

I have a dual rear wheel flatbed/stakebed (pto driven dump) and a single wheel that came with the 9 foot box. Both are 250 models which is actually GMC nomenclature for 1 ton. Chevy called theirs 3800. Engine in your truck would most likely be 228.
Great looking truck - had it long?
