Default 1967 GMC hm7500 build

67 7500 build so far. She has the 401 M we have her running like a champ! With 3 inch stainless exhaust and 8 inch cherry bombs. Shortened the frame to fit a 97 chevy lwb bed. Took out several leaf springs and put blocks back in place to give her a decent ride. (Still one heck of a stiff ride but huge difference) also had driveshaft shortened and re sleeved for strength. She is handling great now. About to start bodywork this week and get her ready for paint. Trying to make a cruise in here in my hometown to do a reveal and start to enjoy driving the od girl.

Prowbar that's awesome finding you on here also. Hope to add a couple of videos soon after getting old girl painted and finishing out the exhaust.

Got the old 7500 shot today. Just going flat black for now until she let's me increase the budget. Have to put old girl back together tomorrow all the badges, grill and other odds and ends. Some details to paint but I couldn't be happier.
