Default 1970 GMC C2500 Ol' Green

As requested by GMCDAC.

This is our 1970 GMC C2500 that we purchased about 1 1/2 years ago. We purchase it as a father/son (and wife) project. My son just turned 14.

I wanted to restore my dad's 1971 Chevy C20 that has been sitting since about 1987 when he passed away. He bought it in 1974 and I learned to drive a 3OTT in it and remember taking a family vacation to the Smokey Mtn. in it.

I knew it would be too big a project for a 13 year olds attentions span. And I needed to start on a simpler project. So we looked for something as a driver/project. We looked at several truck, then looked at this one. In about 30 sec. I decided I wouldn't buy it because it was too rusty. When we left son and wife were both upset because they liked it. About a week later the kid texted me and lowered his price $500. So we bought it. I figured fro $1700 we could play around with it and have some fun. We drove it home 2 hour without a problem. Also it had no windshield rust, it was rusty, but it all down low, floor, fender bottom, etc. Here are some recent pictures:
