    I got the 65 GMC










    It isn't solid but it is all there. It will need rust repair on every panel but the roof. Frame looks solid so it has a foundation of some sort. 9 gave it to my brother.

    In my wife grandfathers garage is also a 1936 Cord and a 1 owner 1968 Harley Davidson. Both are complete.

    Looks fairly solid. What are the plans for the truck? What about the Harley and Cord? You have a lot of work to do with the Camaro on that list too.

    Ls2 does not disappoint. I knew the post would not be read.

    "...gave it to my brother"

    As for the plans for the truck. He is going to do a full resto on the truck while keeping it as original as possible.

    The Harley and Cord are not mine so I have zero plans for them.

    The daughter's first vehicle was addressed in another thread. The oldest kid is giving up my truck for a newer econobox.

    The truck has been getting g steady updates since last year. Within the last year it has received;
    New engine with 3 year/36,000 warranty
    New trans with warranty
    New brakes lines, rotors, pads, master cylinder
    New shocks front and rear
    New ball joints
    New bearings
    New idler arm
    New pitman arm
    New tires

    Next up is to have the door hinges replaced to fix door sag and then everything else is cosmetic.

    Looks pretty good. I'd just repair the cab corners and floor(if it neeeds it) and drive it. Patina looks great.

    And the thread is called "I got the 65 GMC". I feel like this was all intentional so that we would all point out lack of progress on the Camaro.

    You should give your brother the camaro. And in return he should give you a kick in the balls

    Patina Goldmine! I like how sparse the interior is.

    He changed lanes without signaling. In that post he's talking about his V6 truck his daughter has been driving. It's a 90's 1500 if I recall.

    I'm liking your idea earlier of his brother kicking him in the nuts, but instead there should be another LS2 party and then everyone should line up and take turns kicking him in the nuts.

    The engine runs. I need to put the new alternator on it though and the radiator has 2 pinhole leaks.
