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.

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.
80 year old Trucker: Alaska
Dad hauling a load of snow with the Swamp buggy. Dad bought this 1941 GMC
CCKW in 1962 from Frank Jones Construction Co. located here in Anchorage
Alaska. Both Dad and the truck are still going strong.
1937 GMC RAT ROD AT IDLE
This is the latest creation by Scott Graves. The custom built stainless
steel intake and header is unbaffled (for now), so the little '62 235 six
has some bark out of the 4" collector, especially under load.
1959 GMC DETROIT DIESEL SHIFTING
1959 GMC CANNONBALL. DETROIT 6 CYLINDER INLINE 2 CYCLE DIESEL ENGINE. THE

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 !
Normac Special / Wayne-Chevrolet 3870cc inline 6cyl pt 2
"Start up" of a New Zealand Historic 1950's racing car. Built in the
1950's with then curent hot rod parts featuring a crossflow Wayne head
and Hilborne Fuel Injection. Wayne was a company that made 12-port (cross
flow) heads for Chevy & GMC inline six cylinder engines years ago. I
believe the heads were intended for all-out racing purposes only. Most
engines equipped with the Wayne head also had Hilborn fuel injection. The
engines were popular at Bonneville and on the oval tracks.
Tri-power Rochester Model BC Chevy 235 Six
This is 3 carb set-up on a Chevy 235 inline Six. This intake is an
Offenhauser for the 235. The carbs are large base Rochester BC's. The
automatic choke is fed from a copper tube heat riser that extends into the
Exhaust heated base. The tube exits
the heated cavity to the atmosphere (does not pick up carbon from the Exhaust). Fuel line is plumbed entirely
in solid brass pipe.
The engine is 1959 vintage 0.60 over with the late high compression heads.
3/4 cam with mild lope can be heard in the video. Exhaust is temporarily fabbed outside the split
Fenton Exhaust manifolds...so sounds a
little odd with my little digital camera. Sounds a lot better in person!
GMC 702 V12 Engine
The legendary V12 GMC 702 engine on a stand running at the ATHS Hutchinson
Kansas show in May 2008. Used in Crackerbox and other large GMC trucks,
this engine has serious cubes!
