1966 GMC Other

I got this truck through an estate purchase. It does have rust in the floorboard that has been patched. There is also rust on the cab corners, ocker panels and where the fenders attach under the hood. Please see pics. The truck runs and drives but since the truck set for years I would not trust the tires on a really long drive due to possible dry rot. However, did drive it home from Louisville (about 50 miles) and they did fine. This is not the original engine. It has a small block v8 with headers and Holley carb as well as a 4 speed in the floor with a super granny gear in it. As for the wrecker bed.. it is not a holmes. It looks somewhat homemade but very sturdy. The wench works well, ut they have disconnected the back controls on the bed and have a small lever in the floor board that controls the winch. The battery that is in it ( a top post) is not good. I think it is a bad cell, o will need a battery. It had a leaking front wheel cylinder and I rebuilt it so the brakes are in good shape. The yellow light on top works, ut tries to hang as it rotates, o will need to put some WD40 on that.
I do not have the time or money to restore this and am not looking to get into the wrecker business. So I am putting it out here to see if anyone else is interested in it. This is a local pick up only (unless the buyer wishes to arrange having it picked up by someone for them).
Please look at all pics and ask all questions before bidding. I want the buyer to bid with confidence and this would make a great project vehicle or just simply use it as a wrecker for your business.
