Lot #698 - This 1948 GMC ? ton pickup has been fully restored inside, outside and underneath. The full restoration was completed in 2013. The engine is original and the VIN number on the title matches the stamped ID number on the block of the engine. It is an FC 152. It has a new, freshly finished oak wood bed and is a 3-speed transmission. It is indeed a rarity to see a ? ton pickup of this vintage still around, much less restored to the beauty of this truck because farmers bought these trucks to earn their keep and work on the farm until they wore out completely, after which they were usually parked in an open field where they rusted to death. This one, however, has survived the test of time and has been restored meticulously to its better than showroom new condition.
