Dump Truck Week – GMC General

Now this is a nice survivor GMC General. I first spotted this truck a few days ago shortly before the sun set. A that time I was able to grab a few shots but the photos came out a little dark and blurry for my taste. Thankfully the truck did not move for the next two days and I was able to return and grab a few pictures. It was raining this time but I wasn’t got to try my luck with a third visit!

The fenders and cab look really good on this truck. There is minimal rust and the grill is near perfect! The fiberglass hood and aluminum cab have held up well. For what appears to be a site truck this General is still in superior shape. Even the hood ornament has survived.

Some may ask if the General and the Astro shared the same cab. The answer is no. However they did share the same style doors and windshield style.
