Just thought I would make a first post to meet the picture requirement.

I just bought a 1963 GMC 1001 VIN, 5200 GVWR, short box, fender side that is in pretty rough shape but seems very complete.

305 with a 3 speed on the column. Clutch stuck down, brake pedal frozen, motor doesn't turn. Yes, it has plaid valve covers.

It's a Wisconsin truck that hasn't seen the road in many years. All 4 drums are frozen and not sure how I am going to get it on a trailer for the trip home. May have to work on the brakes in the field where it currently sits.

Any suggestions on a picture host? I'd like to post a few pictures.

Welcome!

As to a host, if you're posting a reply, in the additional options you can find a manage attachments button that lets you upload pictures from your computer to the site. That is usually how I upload mine. But with larger pictures that usually gets a little slow. As long as it is not Photobucket it'll probably be fine.

Looking forward to the pictures!

Congrats on your fixer-upper! I envy you.
But how to get it home?
If you know all four wheels/brakes are seized, it means you have tested each of them.
When you had them off the ground, it would have been a good time to try adjusting the shoes in. Maybe some would break loose enough to get on and off the trailer
Dollies would also work except for soft ground and width problems.
I have some old roller strips that it could go on by tipping each side.
We will be interested on how you figure it out.
