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...

About “Full Metal Jacket”

I recently bought this truck from a car collector in Overton, NE. He bought this truck for $3000 in 2004. The guy he bought it from put in a 327ci engine from a 1968 corvette stingray. About 2 months before I bought the truck from him he took the three on the tree and put it on the floor because the linkages had been worn out on the column shifter, and needed replaced. He also put Rally wheels and tires on the truck as well as a little interior work. This is a fun truck to drive and I hope you guys like it.
