rare candian truck (76 olympic edition)

This is a candian only gmc truck(just bought this one )the paint is original to it.I did have the olympic rings on the rear box sides and tailgate.
the white truck is also one but was re-painted at one time

the cab lights were added after both trucks are missing the original engines.
they were made in 76 only and offered only in Canada for the 76 Montreal Olympics.There was 1348 truck offered with this paint package.They also made cars with the same paint(impalas/chevelles)not sure on the production number but i have never seen one

On the last pic, it's a chrome mirror on a white door. Can you 'splain? Awesome truck though.

Cool!!. The ford with the one wheel wonder was actually funny. I like the look on the passengers face during the burnout with the '76!!

Re: rare candian truck (76 olympic edition)

More info.

I got in touch with the owner of the youtube truck, and he sent me some info and pictures of his truck, which he said I could put on 73-87.com. His name is Everett, and is a super nice guy. I told him about this place...hopefully he checks in and says hi.
