The Find 1956 GMC V-8 Hydramatic 4X4 Truck
Here's the whole story of finding a Title and tracking down a 1956 GMC V-8
Hydramatic 4X4 truck. From the truck I found the Title in, to the prep,
loading, transport, unloading and a tour of the truck itself. Don't forget
the out-takes at the end! They also include a couple of really nice
southern Oregon scenery shots.
Part1 1959 Pontiac 389 resurrection for "The Find" 1956 GMC 250 Dually
I HATE PRE-ROLL ADS! YouTube can't seem to get the code right. I've reset
the defaults to NO PRE-ROLL ADS 3 times now. Sorry for the pre-rolls. I'm
still working on it. Snagged a 1959 Pontiac 389 from an hour or so away.
Pig in a poke, really, but they don't get any easier to find as time goes
on. The 56 needs a heart transplant, and 389 cubes is the biggest direct
bolt-in you can get your hands on! I don't know how many parts there will
be. Just trying to get it edited and uploaded!
Cubes... Gotta have cubes...
Redneck Restoration's "This Old Truck" 1957 GMC
For the entire "Project Whitey" playlist, go here:
A 1957 GMC big widow Napco truck project that became a reason to have some
"57 GMC Runs Again" is the engine donor for this truck. We've decided to
video document the process of turning the engine-less "Mighty Whitey" into
a road worthy marvel, updating things for comfort and safety, and all the
while keeping a tight budget. The end result is supposed to be a reliable
cruiser with substantial off-road capabilities, and something that we
needn't worry about getting a scratch on. Keep checking back as we add
episodes building both "Mighty Whitey" and showing other Redneck
Restorations on "This Old Truck".
1927 REO Truck - Slide Pack
I'm working on an old 1927 REO truck that has been left open to the weather
for many years and as a result is in a fairly poor state. However it is not
past the point where it cannot be restored, so join me on a journey to see
if I can get it back on the road.
Junkyard Rescue! Saving a 1950 GMC Truck - Roadkill Ep. 31
One of the most incredible junkyards in the history of junk is Turner's
Auto Wrecking in Fresno, California—and on this episode of Roadkill,
Freiburger and Finnegan hit those 100 acres of vintage sheetmetal and go
spelunking for gold! After considerable debate, the guys select a 1950 GMC
shortbed truck that had been off the road for 26 years and jam to get it
running and driving for the trip home to Los Angeles. At least there was a
50-percent victory. Watch as the guys revamp the Jimmy inline six, panic
over a wrecked master cylinder, sweat their cajones off for four days, and
explore one of the greatest old-car stashes ever!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

cool old story's about this thing plz feel free to post them ! i don't
think there's many of these out there. would be cool to see this thing roar

Abandoned Old Truck Breathes New Life.
This 1965 Ford F100 was abandoned on the property I bought about 10 years
ago.. We didn't think it would run or anything, as it was pretty rough
looking, just sitting under some trees.. It appears to have never been
tampered with, and it is all there,. It's a short bed, short wheelbase
fleetside Custom Cab, and is worth saving.. We were surprised the engine
purrs like a kitten, and doesn't smoke and.. We found out the previous
owner was an old man (he died) that changed oil in all his vehicles every
1,000 miles, religiously.. The shifter needs work, and there are no brakes,
but we will take care of that at a later date.
