GMC Him Coming! He ain't heavy, he's my brother"...or so the song goes. On that note, how can we leave Frank Harper's '52 GMC 2-ton dump truck out of CLASSIC TRUCKS? Frank owns one of the big brothers of many pick-'em-ups you see here on a regular basis, and he sent pictures of his pride and joy to share with you. This author has a soft spot for some of the oddities in the truck world, having owned a few-a '48 GMC 1-ton flatbed daily driver, for example-I share Frank's affinity for his plus-size Jimmy. It sounds like Frank's willing to lay money down on the fact that there isn't a truck around the San Jose, California, area that looks as good and runs as well as his GMC. This Utilitarian-resto still has the legendary GMC straight-six that doses out the torque in 261ci chunks. Behind the rebuilt inline is the rebuilt stock trans and rearend. Frank churched up the '52's backside by building a new bed and overhauling the hydraulics. He might've had to take out a loan to buy new shoes for the old truck, but he did it anyway, and the new rubber sure feels good going down the road. Check out the one-piece windshield and original plates. Frank's a happy hauler no doubt, toolin' around the Central Coast. It's good to hear from the minority (truck-wise) side of the hobby.
