Hi everyone, new to the forum but have wanted an old gmc for a long time. Just picked up a 1964 gmc 2500 with a dump bed on it. It runs and drives, needs some electrical work and could stand a new clutch, but overall pretty good for an all original work Truck from 1964. The best part is I got the truck for free. Looking forward to tearing into the truck and I'm sure I'll have more than a few questions.

Welcome!! Looks like you got a solid truck. Can't beat the price either! You have come to the right place for GMC information.

Great lookin truck! Looks like you're walkin around it sayin, "Hmm, I don't know if it's worth $Free. Them tires are gonna need some work. Would you pay me $50 to haul it off?"


Can't wait to see where it goes. What are your plans?

We're going to start by fixing all the little stuff and make it road worthy again, needs lights and a few other things. we'll check the health of the 305 and decide if I should start cleaning it up while we're at it. I want to make it usable for summer so I can haul landscape rock and manure, so that's the first step. ultimately the plan is to make a working resto rod, hopefully with a 401 in it and clean up the body and hit it with some flat black.
It really made my day when my wife told me it was a pretty cool truck when we were trailering it home today.

oh and Pepsi, that's actually my father in law in the pic, he's actually the one that got the truck for me from one of his neighbors. I had been eyeballing this truck for the last 5 years going to visit them and just happened to mention to him one day I was interested and the truck and vuala it's mine.

Real nice truck.

Great price to boot.

It's even nicer than the '64 C-30 I bought way back in '76. I reconditioned that truck and drove it for 9 years. Hauled everything in it. To date is was one of the best trucks I ever owned.
