Unloading A 1947 GMC Diesel Truck From The Trailer
This 1947 GMC Diesel Truck is being unloaded at the 2010 Truckin' For Kids
Truck Show at Irwindale, CA. Some of the guys that had gathered around to
watch and that had personal experience with these trucks in their day said
that they were "all show and no go" and "that their bark was worse than
their bite". It did have a really nice bark, though! I believe it is
powered by Detroit 6-71.

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
1940s Vintage GMC Cabover (COE) Truck
http://www.junkyardjunkeez.com Sam slows down and takes a long look at a
1940s ? vintage GMC Cab Over Truck. He's in love!
As he looks closer, he starts to wonder if maybe this truck was army issue
from the Second World War (WW2). What do you think? He also notices 5
letters on the roof that he can't quite make out: C (?) (?) N F... any
ideas on what it might mean?
