Yep Martin, I guess I did!
But I have not heard from the potential buyer in a week.
So this thread and the truck are fair game for conversation or another buyer.

Then again, the kids had a lot of fun doing artwork.
I might just have to hang on to it for next year?

Second picture is Caycee and Mom Brooke, with the trophy.

But Caycee did write GMC on the truck, what more proof do Brooke and Skeet need? She's willing to meet them halfway

I looked it over also. I will post here as Justhorse did.
To make a real nice truck out of it it will need total restoration. To get it running & drivable it will need the fuel system & brakes gone trough. The brake pedal goes ton the floor.

The engine sounds ok. it runs rough the way the fuel feed is set up. The front shackels/pins are worn but not too bad. The rears are bad. The springs are good. The steering has about 1-2 in. of freeplay.

The tires are weatherchecked but standing up ok.

It will need radiator Serviced or replaced & new hoses.
Those are my mechanical observations.

They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.

Thanks George!
Public evaluation is what I wanted!
Still have not heard from the potential buyer in NY State.
So, it may go in the Swap Meet next week.

Mongo may want it for parts.
But that would be a crime in my book!

Thanks
