The ’41 is certified and on the road at last! There are still a few things remaining to do on the old family truck – we were able to find the elusive front grille in Colorado and hope to have it soon – but the important thing was getting it on the road before the snow flies in Northern Ontario, and taking Mrs. Colquhoun on a little jaunt in it.
1941 GMC Truck is on the road at last.
Ian and his mother, who both learned how to drive on this truck, take it out for its inaugural run after the restoration
Were you one of the many car aficionados at the Axiom Anniversary party who checked out the restoration of Ian’s Grandad’s ’41 GMC half-ton pick up truck? If so, this update is for you!
Steve Readman has been working hard getting all the parts sourced and the body parts cleaned up and painted. He’s restoring the truck to the original blue it was when Ian’s mother learned to drive on it.
Below are pictures of Steve with the truck yesterday, as well as the front grill, the engine, the dash and the steering column.
