From a Bygone Era: 1939 GMC Truck AC-Series

I knew someone who once bought new a car and the reason she picked that particular car was because it had the optional apple car play…and I was so confused. Because, to me, a touchscreen that communicates with my other touchscreen is one of the last things on my list of “must have” requirements. Above that is; a sweet looking patina’d exterior, and an interior with Mexican blanket upholstery. The only options added to the interior should be a spinny wheel knob, a screwdriver, a can of spray lube, and a gorilla holding up the rear-view mirror. Find this 1939 GMC Truck offered for $6,595 in Milpitas, CA via craigslist.

For sale is an upgraded 1939 GMC/Chevy short flat bed truck. Very hard to find complete, even harder to find running with pink slip!

This sweet patina machina is all set and ready for some easy project fun. Starting with an all original body and has clean cab, floors, split hood, frame, fenders, supports etc. Powered by the original six cylinder engine that helped win WWII. Upgraded to 12 volt and a smooth as butter shifting manual transmission. Stock rearend and good tires takes care of the basics. Great glass and even the windshield moves open easily to bring in that cool air on those trips to car shows.

Short flat bed can be left on or swap on a regular bed (1930’-1950’s should fit). Moving to the interior, the decent bench seat is covered in a Tijuana cowboy blanket for those classic looks. Interior was tastefully detailed in the fine art of ‘rat-rodery’ from the brass shift Handel to over used retro Hussie sticker of how you wish your girl looked like. Making appointments to show this. First person with $6595 get it. Show up with with less money, then you wasted both our day and you go home with nothing. Not going to haggle over a few bucks.
