GET EXACTLY THE RIGHT STAKE OR PLATFORM FOR YOUR FARM! YOU choose from 8, 9 or 12-ft. factory-installed bodies ... plus a wide selection of engines, axles, chassis and transmissions that meet every farm need. Rugged construction includes heavy channel steel rounded rub rail on platforms, hardwood stakes with interlocking corners.
POWER THAT LASTS! Rifle-drilled connecting rods and bearings with 7 times longer life are 2 of many extra-quality features that make GMC engines outlast others. Blocks and crankcases are tough nickel chromium alloy iron, reinforced to take the stress and strain of severest farm hauling.
60% GRADE WITH A FULL LOAD! GMC 4-wheel-drive trucks let you take steep grades and muddy farm fields in stride. When you change to highway traveling, a simple flick of the shift lever switches you to conventional 2-wheel drive for fast, economical over-the-road cruising.
