1942 GMC spent decades in dry storage after apple-hauling duties
How does a 76-year-old workhorse of a flatbed truck show only 27,000 miles on its odometer?
In the case of the Pick of the Day, a 1942 GMC 2.5-ton flatbed truck, it’s because the truck labored in a private apple orchard until 1960, when it was put into dry storage until the original family sold it to the private seller advertising the truck for sale on ClassicCars.com.
“This truck was ordered with all factory options,” the seller notes.
“Body is straight and the bed is in good condition. Has heater, wipers and horn.”
The seller promises the truck is in “great shape” and has updated electrics, master cylinder, fuel tank, tires, brakes, clutch, pressure plate, windshield and frame, headliner, seat, battery and a 2-speed rear axle.
Power is provided by an inline 6-cylinder engine linked to a manual gearbox.
The seller, located in Lewiston, Idaho, suggests that for the asking price of $26,000, this GMC is a great vehicle for promoting a business or driving in a parade.
