Fine dammit! I'll play, but just once.

I think I posted some some partial pics a few weeks back. It's a work in progress.

1988 GMC Jimmy. On 15's

Don't ask what size rims if I had to guess I'd say 20" but I'll check later if needed :P

All original, that's funny, how about pices from this and that from my grandfathers junk yard put together to be a truck built to do a job. And I think I have a extra radator for it. Sad thing is my brother in law scraped its twin 3 years ago.

And I'll play. 76 Ford F100, 390ci V8 C6 3 speed auto and a traction lock rear end gets all of 8mpg right now, one family owned,second gen owner .



will be getting a trans mod and have a 700R4 overdrive trans put in it for better gas millage.

Yeah, you stuck me with a bastardized frankentruck. Laugh on. I meant an original motor as opposed to putting a LS1 in it. Have any clue what "vehicle" the axles are from? I considered buying another one and making this a parts truck as screwed up as everything is. Cant afford ones in better shape! :-(

Aaron, that looks more like a prison bus than a school bus. Hope it's not an omen for your future.

Haha... Used to be yellow but the guy I got it from rolled the grey on and used that white trailer roof sealer on the top. I'm debating on an olive green paint job or just do graffiti on it.

Aaron, what's the plan for the bus? Toyhauler/motorhome?

Yup... I'm putting a lift off of a box truck on the back and using the last 7-8 feet of the bus as bike storage. I also plan on building a roof rack all the way across the roof. I've already started on the interior.

It's a bit messy right now but I'm almost done with the outer walls

Best I know everthing below the frame was a one ton bread truck, all the reserch I did put it as a 48 or 49 and the only diffrence in a 49 and a 52 is the front shocks they went to modern shocks around 50. And this is the only reasion we say the cab and frame are from diffrent trucks. The cab is a 52 and that's what it was always taged with and the serial number that was always used. The motor could be from any chevy he had that had a good motor in it. And compared to a lot of trucks of that age its in good shape. Oh and with the right cross member under the motor you can bolt a 283 V8 to that trans. Chevys where great about being able to use almost anything from anything else of that time. I need to find the place I had found to get a split intake and exhaust mantifolds let's you run two carbs and have dual exhaust.

I've seen some online with the dual carbs. Haven't gotten that far into plans yet. Want to just get it going and stopping for now. :-)
