Thanks for posting all this info 637V8, My 73 PU has a similar foil tag with nothing on it either.

Glad to see all the interest in the 637 V-8. I used to drive a GMC 9500 Conventional Cab with a 637. It had the same Emblem on the side of the hood as pictured here on page 2.

It probably took me a good 35 years till I finally saw another (in pictures) Conventional Cab with a 637. They are pretty rare, but what made my truck extra rare was that it had a 10-Speed Road Ranger Trans. Till this day I've never seen another.

The truck was a 20 Ft Tandem Axel Flatbed Dump. It had 12 Fronts and 34 Rears with a GVW of 46,000, Air Brakes, 10-20 Tires with Spoke Wheels.

Fun truck to drive.

Bill

I do see this is an old thread, projects like this are few and far between.

How is the project going?

I live in middle 4th and our fire dept has one very similar still in use and is by far not the oldest one. Also I have a cousin who is in his 70's is a chief at volunteer dept and has his own pump engine, it as well is very similar.

I haven't had the pleasure of looking at them in detail, now I shall use this as an excuse to stop by the fire hall and take you some pics. The one the city still uses if I ain't mistaken is powered by a screaming Detroit diesel 2 stroke. Wow, how I would have to eat those words if I'm wrong as only an idiot can mistake that wonderful noise!
