Yeah, I still have both the 1976 C65 With 427 tall block, Eaton 5 speed, and two speed rear. I regularly tow 22000, and on Vermont's hills it really works both ways, up & down.Nice. Green was chosen because the truck was originally a Fire/Truck abmulance sosafety green was the original color, bed was painted to match the cab. is not cheap to have a truck painted. If I do repaint id probably keep it green but a neon bright green you see on some of the new big rigs and do a two tone. my roof is white though so i guess its already two tone. may do a strip of bed liner down the bottom of the truck like i did on my dodge.
I figure the Cat 3208 will have an easier time on hills.
The 1990 GMC was also an E1 Fire truck originally painted safety green. The town I bought it from had it sold to a town in Ohio. Part of the deal was they'd paint it red. Every vehicle I've owned since 1985 has been red, sort of company colors.
I sure would like to have 4 wheel drive!
