Another Yard Ornament

I haven't been messing with my old GMCs much the last year or so. I have been spending more time buying and fixing old Diesel trucks like I once owned, but someone on the OldGMCTrucks.com site posted one on eBay only 80 miles from me. It is a 1949 350 with just about every option available in 1949. I put in a Esnipe bid and got it. Someone did a lot of work to it. Professionally done wiring, 4 new tires, new exhaust, aluminum fuel tank with a Facet pump, radiator work and it just doesn't have any rustout. It is an unusually long wheel base and frame overhang. I have no idea where this thing spent the last 70 years.
