OK guys. Here is our father-son project. (I'm 15)
Don't know much about him.
But I know :
•'59 3800 Dually Stakebed
•Possibly a 235 Inline-6 (or a 261)
•4-speed manual
•3 tanks. (1 factory behind seat, 2 saddle tanks)
•Gunrack
•Footstarter
•Lever-type Emergancy Brake
And that's about it.
For pictures click this link:

And most of all, thanks and have fun.
-Anthony.

Hey Anthony,

Great looking truck. I love the dash in those. I had a 59 GMC that I wish I still had. My Grandma bought it new! Oh well, can't keep em all. You're truck sure is cool. What are the plans for it?

We plan to get it to daily-driver status, and then eventually restore it.
The engine is siezed.
It hasn't been registered sense '78.
Yeah its a really cool truck.
