YAK Car Pic of the Day

'50 GMC, Killeen, TX

From the Out-of-Town Collection: this 1950 GMC panel truck was sitting in a used car lot just a few blocks from the gate of Ft. Hood in Killeen, TX a few weeks back when we visited. The sign in the front window said it’s a 1950, while the info sheet in the back window said 1953; I believe it’s a ’50 though. Unfortunately the seller is encouraging someone to buy it and turn it into a street rod. Yikes! This truck is begging for someone to scoop it up and use it to promote their business. Please, people, have some respect!

  • This looks like a s t r e t c h version, compared to the one shown in the brochure art — making it perhaps extra-rare.

      Those l o n g panels would look great wearing a You Auto Know logo

    I agree, Jim. That jewel should be on the road, as is. It would be the perfect machine for a small craft brewery to deliver their kegs and would provide lots of visible sheet metal on those panels for advertising.

    a prototype Suburban ?

    That GMC Panel truck would be cool for some skilled trades small business. Thoes panels are begging for some logo. All that space. (But you gotta admit, it would make a really great custom streetrod. (Not very Artvoicey to say it though.)
