Merrill’s 1972 GMC Full Restoration


This truck came in for a full restoration about 1.5 years ago and we were hit with supply chain issues and have been waiting 10 months for a parts order.

This is Merrill’s first truck the purchased back in 1972 and it is a very rare truck, there just weren’t very many built. 

We upgraded the engine to a 383 stroker and added four-wheel disc brakes along with Holley Sniper fuel injection.
