1st Ride in the Crackerbox.wmv
Took the Crackerbox for it's 1st spin in 24 years. Ran good, shifted good, stopped good but has no traction without a load, as you will see in the end. Barely used any fuel

1967 GMC cracker box with Detroit diesel 6v71. Thanks to Thomas Christman for clearing it up.

68 GMC 6-71 Crackerbox start up
Starting up the Detroit after cleaning 3 of the 6 injectors. I had a pair of vice grips on the throttle rack. I also added a qt of tranny fluid to the bucket of fuel I was running on. This truck had sat for years and was going to be scrapped. I think this truck is gonna be ok. I can't wait to drive it.
