1980 GMC Other1980 GMC 6000 with Marmon-Herrington 4x4 conversion (was once an Asplund truck, am second owner) I have owned this truck for 27 years and have finally outgrown it and moved to a larger truck so it's time to let my baby go (sadly). Was in use up to a few weeks ago when I loaded most of the tools onto my new truck so it hasn't been sitting idle long. Left the welder and cable spools on this truck for next owner. 4x4 was real handy in the quarry's when we had all that rain this spring. Scrubbed it up real good, ad the seat reupholstered ($400), ixed a couple of rust spots on the bed and gave it a paint job. This truck is ready to go to work, ust put your gas bottles on it, ome hose, able on the spools, and tools and you are ready to make money or save money by keeping your own machinery in good working order. This truck is by no means wore out or junk, t was making me money right up to the day I changed over to my larger one. Short wheelbase makes nice tight turns.
Now the details:
366 big block, ullet proof, lways starts even in -30 weather. Vacuum booster juice brakes, ower steering, ouble frame. Clark 5 speed tranny. Button clutch so it never gets hot or wears out. Transfer case, ront and rear differentials all Rockwell, ock outs on front. Utility bed is older than the truck but still has plenty of years left in it. Has drawers in one compartment for hand tools. Gang box hangs off welder on drivers side, able reels on pass side. Front winch is a Tulsa 20,000# 2 way PTO driven with 300+ feet of 5/8 crane cable. I have pulled the world around with this winch (60,000+ pound dump trucks sunk to the hubs, oad graders, ozers, arm tractors etc.) Rear winch is an electric Ramsey 8,000# with 1/2" galvanized cable with a tail wheel and short leader chain. Poles fold up and down with power and I have picked up 6,000#+ with it. A real handy work table on the rear with a removable vise. Extra lights to work at night or help backing up. I carried a ton of steel in the 6' bed for all the repairs I had to make in the field.
The welder is a 400 amp Miller Trailblazer with 10 KW AC generator powered by a Wisconsin air cooled engine that I rebuilt a few years ago (2011). Uses no oil, tarts right up and will weld all day long. Uses a little over a gallon of gas an hour. There is a Ford style air conditioner compressor I installed in the welder for air so there is air on board.
Always keep her in good repair because I am on call 24-7 and had to have my truck ready to go at a moments notice. Again, his truck is ready to go to work TODAY!
GVW is 21,200, 000 front, 4,200 rear, ran it at 17,800# with 18,000# plates, bout nine feet and change tall, o need for a CDL. 900:20 tires are 50%.
Found a nice ox-acet hose reel and installed it today, ow all you need are some welding leads. There is also a reel for the air hose hidden above the torch reel.
I gave her new GM doors, windshield, rill, aint job, S mirrors, hot the rockers and doors with rust proof, and blasted and painted wheels in 1998. I have books for the Rockwell stuff, elder as well as some spare parts, ew spare tire on freshly painted wheel, ull set of tire chains. Have jotted down most of the maintenance stuff I can remember through the years for the new owner. I added a couple of pictures of when it was still set up, pools, ottles etc. We've been through a lot her and I, 2,000 feet in the San Juan mountains, own to our hubs in cattle pen, kidding on black ice, pulling cars out of 3' snow drifts, oad graders down to their blades. It will run 70 MPH in flatter country (carburetor is governed), lower in the mountains. I was always proud to show up to a job with this truck, onna miss her.
