    Up for sale is my 1977 GMC 3 wheel drive 1 ton dump truck. This truck was originally a local municipal truck. Still has the hydraulic hook ups in the rear for a hydraulic salt spreader (never had the spreader). Everthing still works on the truck, and the dump works great. I have had her loaded to the gills with broken concrete, and she dumped it with ease. Good running 350 small block with a four speed manual transmission. Just spent $300 on new exhaust. Put new front brakes and front brake lines on this summer. Serviced the rear end. She is rusty in places, but still works hard. Truck comes with a new set of front fenders (not installed). $2,500 or best offer (you can't even find a decent dump trailer for that kind of money).

    I will post pics as soon as I take some.

    Call Ryan at (563) 570-2303 if you have any questions.

    Still for sale. The description says 3 wheel drive, but I must have been typing too fast. It is a 2 wheel drive truck. Price reduced to $1,800.00. MUST SELL!

    Seems like a pretty good deal to me. Pics might help move the truck a little faster.

    Started her for the first time this winter, and she fired right up.

    The floor is not too bad. It has a couple of small holes, but nothing terrible for the age of the truck. I have hauled mulch, sand, dirt, broken concrete, and have never had an issue. This use to be a municipal truck prior to me getting it. The floor boards will need some patching though. But otherwise, it is a good ole truck to have around.
