About “Little Green 46”

This truck was bought by my father, it is still his truck, but it stays at our place in the summer months. Next summer (09) it is likely to take the summer off for some refurbishing.. It was restored in 1976..

I learned how to drive a standard on this truck.. Just me, the truck, a tank of gas, and a horse pasture... Learn or walk...

This truck is what started me on collecting old vehicles..

About “Daily driver/Towing truck”

I bought the truck form my girlfriend's father as a get me by truck since my 69 C-10 blew up... Two years later... its still a get me by truck and now starting to cost alot of money to keep it going...
The truck is a "mix breed".. the grill says its a Chevy, the steering wheel says its a GMC, the dash says its a Chevy, the tail gate says its a GMC, the center caps say its a Chevy... But the title says its a GMC... so i dont know what it really is...
