I've been a land rover fan for many years (I've had my '68 daily driver for about 12 years) but landed in truck heaven four years ago. I was transferred to Roswell, NM for work, and was amazed at the number of restorable old trucks lying around out here. I eventually opened a garage and towing service, so it was only natural that I should get an old truck and fix her up. After months of searching, I finally found a 1929 GMC T-19 pickup sitting out in the desert and bought it from the owner in July 2010.
Since bringing it to the garage, I have removed the original ponitac 'split-head six' engine, torn it down, and am waiting to pick it up from the machine shop this week. I stripped the truck down to the frame, and had it blasted and osphoed this weekend. The brakes have been rebuilt (no hydraulics to get in my way, everything is connected to the brake pedal via rods and bellcranks) and I have installed new tires. The transmission has been disassembled and rebuilt.
One of the reasons I joined your forum is that I am hoping to hear from someone who may have information on these old trucks or, better yet, one in captivity.
At any rate, I think you guys have assembled a great forum here and I love checking out all of your great old trucks.
