Does anyone else in the group have a G506? Or any CHEV 1 1/2 ton?

Yep. Mine is very much an on-going restoration... I was lucky to find a very reasonably priced truck almost in my back yard, and was doubly lucky that it still has many of its original parts, including the cargo bed.

You can see a couple of pictures here...

I have one as well. Currently working on the frame, then the cab, then the cargo body.

I got mine in Sept 2011. It's my second military truck. I really like it. It is a 42 G506 with a winch.
