Customer Question
Hi Rick Got a 1956 gmc...
Hi Rick
Got a 1956 gmc truck that looks like it has the original frame....the cab extension mount are all riveted, not bolted...
Some one that passed away converted it to a later 4x4 suspension .....welding the brackets for the springs and adding the necessary cross members and engine mounts to make it work....the guy built the truck for his parents before he died...and they have taken it to the car shows, so I've had no reason to doubt the history...they are in their late 60s....truck was repainted, vin tag being removed to do clean paint.....I have a title to the truck...said to be the right one....So...here's my question...Where do I fine the vin number on the frame to ID the frame and truck body belong to each other on this 1956 gmc? Thanks Jim
