Default GMC 1962 - 3/4 t - Long bed - 305ci - 4 speed

Hello,

I'm Dylan and I recently purchased a very nice GMC truck.
It has its nice patina, imported from California, 3/4t, long bed, 305ci V6, 4 speed SM420.

A very nice truck which is quite rare where I am living, in Belgium, Europe.

I'm now waiting for my insurance; getting the license plate then on the road!
I'm planning to do a good maintenance in the following weeks: oïl, coolant, brakes, rear axle and transmission.

I'm planning to leave it as is, stock, no mods at all except a radio I think.

Thanks


Dylan

Welcome! And super glad your leaving the v6 in there. To many people take these perfectly good engines and dump them for sbc's. Glad your another in the crowd keeping it.

Thank you guys.

I agree, chromed valve cover isn't nice but keep in mind it is quite hard to find stock GMC valve cover with gasket over here.

I would need to find used one with a set of gasket in order to keep the stock look but not on my priority list for now.

I'm discovering this beast because here it is a big truck, way bigger than my familly car in length and width hey hey...

I also noticed the water temp gauge doesn't read anything, I put the wire to ground and Nothing so either the wire is cut somewhere or not connected or worst thing, shot water temp gauge.

The speedometer doesn't work but the cable is there so got to check if the gear cable isn't cut in the cable housing or it is worst or not.

Other than than, check this out, for the radio, the previous owner trimmed the radio opening so I'll suffer to find something fitting into this....

The chrome valve covers look great

, don't worry to much about a total stock look under the hood, I had my valve covers chromed on my 68 K2500 and wouldn't have it any other way,

If you burry them I'll dig them up and keep them. Have you seen the Plaid vale covers?

Question for the expert; according to the VIN, it is a 1500 and I've got 8 wheel lugs front and rear.

Should I assume I've got a Dana 60 at the back?
