Wow!

Now that's what I was looking for when I bought my shop truck. Only bought it because it was rust free. Still would rather have a COE. It looks to be in real nice shape Nick.....at least from here. :D
You have excelent vision. I didn't know anyone could see that far.............. LOL.

It does look kinda kool, wish it was a Chevy but I love the big grin in the grill.

Just so you know. Even though it doesn't make a difference but that is a 52 not a 51. You can tell by the mouldings. Dee

Hello Nick I'm near but I'm not able to view it i wish I could. I worked with a guy (he's now retired) who built one of these to be a tow vehicle for a 5th wheel travel trailer for his wife and he to cruise around the country attending street rod shows. I haven't seen him since he retire so I guess he's still on the road!

That's a very nice one Auggie!
Gonna put it in my favorites and watch how much it goes for.
Nick,i've been trying to buy a 53 GMC,COE here for several years.The guy said he'd sell then changed his mind.I may get it yet!I already have a one ton dually frame for it.
For a while,I saw several that had a one ton 4x4 front chassie with a dual axle car trailer for the rear and ran off the front end drive.Pretty neat looking rigs.
Mike.:)
