Frame rails pictures needed

Postby kelley » Sat Aug 11, 2012 7:35 pm

Greetings,I found this old truck in northern Maine, It's spent many many years sitting in a field. As you can see it's been "Bobbed" and singled and has plowed alot of snow. The frame rails forward of the front axle are pretty mangled. The frame rails behind the cab are also beyond repair. I could really use some side views of the frond rails to aid in rebuild. Thanks for reading my 1st post, Kelley

I think what you have found is a Chevy 1-1/2 ton G506 class truck and not a GMC CCKW 2-1/2 ton. The Chevy only had a single rear axle, rather than tandems. The truck also has engine side panels with about half the louvers of a GMC. It has lived a hard life!
