1950 GMC

This barn fresh find, the plans were to keep it looking as original as possible while upgrading all the mechanicals. And that’s just what was done with a few extra touches to tie it all together. What is left now is an original looking work truck with a 350 V-8 tri-power, automatic trans, open drive train, disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, air bag suspension and the complete under carriage painted and a detailed engine bay. The best of both worlds one would say.
