3B, did Canadian GMC use the same Power Divider that Chevrolet (USA) used? The shift levers look a little different to me.

That's a neat truck and would be the only on at the Sunday morning cruise -in!

Post some pictures of the power divider and the rears when you can.

Is that an optical illusion, or are there actually three shifters in that cab? What's that funny-looking curved stick for? I can see the main shifter and the Brownie clearly, but is looks like there's another one there also.

If lt has air brakes, that will be a plus, older hydraulic brakes are difficult to find parts for, everything rusts because of brake fluid.

Hy Guys, Mike as far as I know the driveline components on those tandems are the same on both sides of the border. Hotrod Lincoln the third lever is what they call a declutching lever, in one position only the front axle of the tandem is being driven, in the other position both axles are being driven. I do not recall seeing an air compressor in the engine compartment, but I will go back and check, without that compressor no air brakes or air over hydraulic brakes. I would not mind having that truck join my rust collection myself, but I hope Smangy buys and preserves it. Hope that helps.

Thx everyone for the good info.
Really wanna pick it up, hope wife doesnt kill me too many projects already.
The seller takes forever to get back to me online. He must have no signal up there in the north pole.
Also found this info online. It's from a chevy but the same I guess.

Hy guys, I just went back and checked the pics, no compressor, but a power steering pump, so rare power steering, definitely a 348/409 style engine. I hope Smangy or someone grabs it and preserves it.

The seller sent me more pic.
Fenders rusted and the cab above the windshield is rotted. Sucks.
