39 GMC service truck

Ground has broke on my latest project. After failing to stick with my original welding/service truck theme on my 39 dodge thread here, I scored a 39 GMC to take its place.

Iíve been on the hunt for one for sometime and low and behold one popped up not 5 minutes from my house. Picked it up the same day and hauled it the long journey home.

Was happy to find that it didnít take very much at all to actually get the ol girl running. That was never my real intention to do but it worked out. I will be sticking with the stock frame to keep all the body mounts the same. Will be boxing the frame and adding crossmembers. Iím hunting down a Cummins and 48re and tcase for it right now. Plan to put a set of 2011 ram 3500 axles under it with just leaf and coil. No fancy bags this time.

Few pics of the start of rust repair and fuel tank removal. Sticking with the bench seat since I will be going with an auto. The drawing is essentially the end goal, Iím not an artist by any means just enjoy sketching my dreams.

Little update: the engine is now out, picked up the axles for it today and going back next week to grab the donor truck from the same guy. Still need to find a good 47 or 48 with tcase. Donor truck has an Allison but I canít have that boat anchor setup since Iíll be at gross weight as it is.

Slid the rear axle under to get an idea on width, Iíll be running singles on the dually to keep it a little narrower.

Managed to get the rear suspension situated. Front will be a whole new ball game. Looking for a 4g front clip for the brackets and what not if anyone has one let me know! Also, little 9 hour road trip scored me a decent bed with crane. Not sure if Iíll use it or not or just trailer it behind but happy with the purchase nonetheless.
Ps donít mind the lawn, itís weeds and I donít care to keep it alive in the summer
