I've always said I was born a generation late. I love to play with old trucks and old machinery. That being said, I never got to experience new or gently used equipment that I enjoy running and wrenching on.
A neighboring farmer passed at 89 back in July. Your typical "never threw anything away" kind of guy. Aside from farming, he ran an excavation and construction business for nearly 50 years. His kids had a sale in September of his remaining equipment, and I brought home possibly something I never thought I would have the chance to own.
When's the last time you saw a 1976 GMC Sierra 350 with only 8300 original miles? Still has its original steering tires (belted radials, and dry rotten something awful).
The wood deck in the dump box was in bad shape, we just put a new floor in. I've changed the oil, lubed her, and put new rear lights on. The wiring was frightening.
This one's a real gem. Going to make a sharp working antique here on the farm...

I've got more pictures coming, but I need to figure out how to resize them from my cell phone...

Nice find!

I use the Image Size app on my iphone. Seems to work fine in reducing photos to an acceptable size. There are other sizer apps available.

Keep us posted...

Wow!

That truck is not even broke in yet! :)

I said it before, but this site needs a automatic image resizer.

Too many people have too many problems posting pics!
