This Original 1953 GMC Dump Truck is the most solid and complete that you will find. It is not restored, although at some point in its history (long ago) it was repainted. Factory color is dark teal, it is now powder blue.
Everything works as it should, but could use refreshing. All the small parts that are usually missing are there; ash tray, transmission cover plate, battery box cover, dome light, glove box door & Oil air filter (although I think that there is a master cylinder fill cover, not there).
I was told by an n old car dealer that it is a 235CI. It is probably not the original one as it has a Chevy valve cover. Everything runs as it should and the truck pulls strong.
There is one spot on the floor board where there are very minor pinholes of rust and the back corners have some bubbles where an older repair is showing. There is some minor perforation that has been repaired with bondo there.
There are a few minor dents and scrapes as this was used as a farm vehicle. All of the glass will need to be replaced. The speedodometer needle is broken, but works, odometer works. Could be showing the actual mileage 80,500.
The steel sided dump bed is a grain bed with the gate missing, not the traditional swing barn door. It has a wood floor, but has broken areas and would need to be replaced. The body has a tag on it from a professional truck body manufacturer, “Anthony Hydraulics” from Illinois.
Front tires are decent, with good tread; rear tires have dry rot, but hold air and have tread.
If you are looking for an extremely solid and complete place to start a restoration or just a fun toy to tinker with, this is the truck for you.
This truck is very solid and complete. It was a western North Dakota farm truck and has a grain dump with transmission PTO and double piston hydraulics. It is currently in North Dakota. The truck was just tuned, new oil in transmission & engine (differential oil needs to be changed), new battery, new master cylinder and new ignition switch. It has an issue with the coil that is likely related to 12V conversion and unmatched coil to voltage output. It will need a new alternator and coil. Runs great, needs exhaust manifold which I can source easily. Easy restoration project and worth $20k+++ when done. Please call Jeff (206) 707-6602 with any questions.
