Re: post a picture of your truck

Wow! Love it! The wheel size and design go great on this truck. What is the color? You've got a beauty.

They are 20'' x 10'' wide Panthers with Goodyear low profile tires. The color is a custom match I made at my shop. I call it Brandy wine with a purple pearl.

I was wondering if 20's would fit. That is a fine specimen of the era. I also am stuck with 6 lugs. Hard to find nice reasonably price wheels. Yours fit the bill well.

Re: post a picture of your truck

I just picked up this 1972 C30 (8 lug wheels) with a transplanted 454 in it.

NEAT truck ...

I learned to drive on a 1968 C10 with the 307 and 3 on the tree. Hot rodded it in high school and learned a lot about automotive stuff in general on it.

Owned a 1968 GMC with the 6 and 4 speed on the floor back in the 80s as a "beat around truck". Bought it for $200, did some basic mechanical stuff on it and figured I'd swap in a SBC at some point since the 6 had rod knock. Co-workers spray painted it flat black one day when I was in a meeting (it was far from a show truck!) :) From that day forward it was "the General" ... I put the take off tires from my Grand National on it at one point and it actually looked pretty darn tough!

The 6 never did die (although it was definitely a "mosquito fogger"). I drove the thing as my "back and forth to work and haul WAAAAY too much stuff on the weekends" truck for almost 8 years before I gave it to my brother ... who preceded to use it for almost 4 more years! By the time he DROVE it to the salvage yard, it had swiss cheese floor boards and the wiring shorted somewhere one day when he was driving it (I think the dimmer switch rusted all the way thru!) and smoked everything electrical in it.

SO ... anyway ... have always had a soft spot for these trucks and just got this beautiful example ... even though it's not a 1/2 ton.

I've been doing the typical "old car stuff" fixes (put new rotors and pads, greased all the ball joints, fixed some little loose things) but next things on the list are:
  • Remount the gas tank with a rear mount gas tank kit (I've got my shopping car full on LMC truck! :) )
  • Recalibrate the speedo (it's off by a good 8-10 MPH at speed). Thinking I can just get new driven gear at the trans?
  • Put an electric choke kit on the Edelbrock 1405 carb (it has that and a Performer manifold) ... obviously a later model BBC swapped in. Is there an easy to get to wire for IGN on under the hood (not the coil wire) for the choke? I'm thinking there's a splice going to the starter solenoid?
  • Eventually, either fix the stock A/C (no compressor) or I'm starting to think the Vintage Air kit is probably easier and more cost effective in the long run? Probably do that as next summer's project after I shake all the bugs out

DEAD LINK / NO PHOTO ERROR ON PAGE

Not sure if it gets any better... wonder when GM will make a "retro" new version of these classic haulers?

Once I get my new barn / shop done... a '67-72 restoration (more stock than not) is a must. Maybe a '72 with a '67 doghouse?
