    47 GMC Pickup...

    Wanted one for years, finally managed to get one

    Imported from Missouri a few weeks ago, not got it running yet but I'm sure it wont take much :-/

    As it arrived









    Bit of rot in the footwell, same both sides



    Getting my lad to help out



    Bit of old sign writing on the door


    Turns out its from this company



    After a bit of mopping it turned from a matt to a satin finish, spot on


    Plans are white walls and a little lower and drive the arse off it

    Nice old truck you've got there, have you got it running yet? I like the use for the Moggy bonnet should go in there a treat. Are you waiting for november to get it registered? or as soon as it's registered?

    Good luck with it John

    Cheers guys, its not running yet although it was when it was in the US, concentrating on getting it sound first. Not deliberating waiting till November but it may not be done till then as it is, that said im not sure if it will have to have an MOT to get through the registration of it?
