Hi all.
Just bought this truck.
57 GMC.
Previous owner bought 30 years ago. At the time did the clutch,
brakes and swapped in an alternator.
That’s it. Only put on 1500 miles since then but still being driven a bit each summer.
Canadian model, 235, 3 on tree.

Welcome to the bolt. That looks like a solid start so an exciting adventure in restoration.

Another quality post.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Thanks all.
Going to leave the body pretty much like it is.
Get the power train in good running order.
Needs the seat redone, and the interior is painted flat black
So I think I’ll “restore” the interior to look “well cared for “ but not new and shiny
