This truck was purchased new in 1957 by my father, for use in transporting grain from Waldenburg, AR to the riverport in Memphis, TN.  It was sold in a farm sale in 1986 and recovered by me in 2006.  It is driven and shown locally.  1957 was the only year that GMC used the Pontiac 347 CID engine.  All is original with the exception of alternator, exhaust, rear fenders, aluminum tanks and chrome breather.  My dad would have loved the exhaust and chrome.
