About This 1950 GMC Pickup1950 GMC 5 window pickup, all steel body. Shaved door handles, gas tank relocated under bed. 1981 Camaro front clip and complete drivetrain including: 305 V8, Automatic turbo 350 trans, Differential,(ratio unknown). Wiring harness and complete 12 volt conversion. The Truck runs and drives great, just like driving a 70's vintage car. Power steering and brakes, Turn signals, Windshield wipers and washer, Safety glass all the way around, Seat belts with shoulder harness, Leather bucket seats, (I was told from a BMW), and a Leather Nardi steering wheel from Italy. Gauges are original, appear to be restored, and look great. Brand new 16 inch aluminum wheels with 245 50's in the back, and 215 50's in the front. Brand new Edelbrock performer intake and freshly rebuilt Quadrajet carb. This is a great truck that is fun to drive and gets lots of looks. The work on this truck was done several years ago, and does have some wear. The body is straight and doesn't have a dent, but the grill does have ding. I would rate the paint about a 6.5 out of ten, there are a few scratches, nothing you would notice from 10 feet away. The truck has been used as a truck, to haul various items and the bed shows wear and scratches. The wood bed is very solid and though not show, very usable. There are a few issues with truck. It has a tilt column from the Camaro, and the tilt portion is loose, so the wheel can be wiggled up and down about 3/4s of an inch. This doesn't lead to ANY play in the steering, and it is within tolerance and passes Utah's safety inspection. If you are familiar with GM automatics, you know that several functions are controlled with the steering column, and a rotating section of the column, including the neutral safety switch and steering wheel lock. It is nessasary to rotate the collar on the column to the left to start the truck (neutral safety switch) and to put the truck into park (steering column lock). This really hasn't been an issue for me, and acts as a anti theft device. The gauges are from the original truck, and the gas gauge functions fine, but you are out at 1/4 tank. I always gas up at 1/2. The passenger door glass was cut too small and only rolls down half way before jamming. The seat belts retracting device jams and they need to be swapped out. They are still functional, but annoying. This truck is a great buy for anyone interested in one of these trucks. You can leave it as is and have a blast. You could make a few changes and make it look stock, or make it a show truck. The truck is of course, sold as is, where is. I drive this truck almost daily during the summer and I love it, I'm sure you will too.
