1951 Army truck pulled from building after 30 years storage.
I decided to get this army truck out of my building, after 30 years - - I now have it for sale for $1500 - - - missing transmission, has transfer case yet; 99% rust free. I had planned to install a 6-71 Detroit diesel in it with an Allison automatic. I might still do that if no one wants it before that. Still has the 302 GMC 6 cyl gas engine though.





8V71 Open Exhaust in french GMC Astro
Un route de campagne Lorraine, un bruit infernal : Detroit Diesel in action ! Un copain me fait faire un tour avec sa dernière acquisition... GMC Astro de 1974, ex transport Marmeth de Nantua. Le moteur n'est pas un "banal" -6V92T mais bien un vrai V8 sans turbo, un rageur 8V71 qui permet une conduite sportive, et libère pleinement en échappement libre.





Cannonball A tribute to the GMC COE
This is meant as a tribute to one of my favorite trucks, the GMC COE's known as Cannonballs. The music is from the series "Cannonball" that aired from Canada in the late 1950's.





A Second Look Under The Hood Of The 1947 GMC 6-71 Powered Diesel Truck (Passengers Side)
Here is another short clip showing the GM diesel in this '47 GMC. I don't know much about this truck or it's engine. Obviously it is an in-line six and it said General Motors on it. I think it might be a Detroit Diesel 6-71. Someone said it was an old PT Boat motor. Shot at the Truckin' For Kids Truck Show at Irwindale,CA. 10-23-10.





68 GMC 9500 8V71 13 speed
The last ride in our 1968 GMC 9500 tow truck before it was retired. She was a little hard to start as it was about 15 degrees that day and she hadn't been plugged in.





V12 Detriot Diesel 525HP
Setting the engine up and breaking it in.Remember this engine is just being started after a rebuild so that's why it's smoking from the assembly lube and the rack will be set-up to stop the hunting etc etc. Then the oil is changed and the engine painted. These engine's go into Euclid mining rock trucks,and they were in many other equipment/vehicles.The engine has rebuild heads,turbo's, blower, water pump,all internal parts and the air compressor All done in the great north of Canada





Western Star Wind-up and Jake Brake
95' Western Star 4964F Engine: 3406c Cat (mechanical) Trans: Eaton 15 speed Noise: 6" straights. Being a little jake offensive, but hey that's what Youtube is for right?





Detroit 6-71 in GMC Crackerbox pulling a hill
Here is my Crackerbox Jimmy pulling hill and smoking, then Jake Braking after we get up the hill.





Gmc crackerbox drive
For those of you that asked for a driving video I finally got one. Just a short clip around the neighborhood. I'll have a better one soon

1974 GMC 9500 semi truck pull at Sherburne County Fair with a 2-stroke 8v71 Detroit Diesel.





2015 GMC Sierra Denali: A big rig for the boss
Hooniverse.com's Jeff Glucker typically drives fast and/or luxurious machines, so it was quite a change of pace to spend time with a heavy-duty pickup truck. The 2015 GMC Sierra Denali 2500 HD isn't just a truck though... Still, the diesel engine offered gobs of power and and the interior is as nice as a brand-new Escalade.





1959 GMC DETROIT DIESEL SHIFTING
1959 GMC CANNONBALL. DETROIT 6 CYLINDER INLINE 2 CYCLE DIESEL ENGINE. THE TRANSMISSION IS A 10 SPEED ROADRANGER. TOP SPEED OF THE TRUCK IS 65 MPH. I TRIED TO DO A MIX OF LOW RANGE TO HIGH RANGE AND BACK TO LOW , SOME DOUBLE CLUTCH , SOME NO CLUTCH , JAKE SHIFTING . UPSHIFT AND DOWN SHIFT. SOME HIGHWAY DRIVING AT 50 MPH AND AT THE END CLIMBING A GRAVEL DRIVE ON A 15 % GRADE. THE TRUCK HAS 9000 MILES ON A FRAME OFF RESTORATION. IT IS NOT COMMERCIAL AND DOES NOT SMOKE OR LEAK. IT JUST GOES TO SHOWS , PARADES AND EDUCATIONAL EXHIBITS IN ITS WELL DESERVED RETIREMENT. THANKS FOR LOOKING !
