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.
Bracing The Cab For Removal
Bracing the cab for removal is part of the process, you use square tube and cross brace the cab to stop it from wobbling after you remove the floorboards.
This is the removal of the bed from the frame.

Mounting the cab on the rotisserie and getting ready to install the floorboard.
