window

cab it does have the deluxe stainless trim on it it is a deluxe cabin I don't know that outside - the doors aren't bad I've got some nice doors for one of these front fender it looks pretty decent there I'm liking what I see with the grill it's not perfect but it's pretty decent someone stole the headlight rings still got the stainless trim around the windshield which is highly sought after and like I said I do have some parts for these that hubcap right there is unobtainium 3/4 ton and one ton hubcaps where these things are really hard to get trim looks good over here I didn't notice it and there's the huge three-speed transmission right there good to see that in there the door sir like I said the door sir shot the upper part of the cab looks pretty good there's the hood emblem over there got the seat frames which is hard to find the springs and all that form got the jack and I'm gonna have to offload some of this stuff into the back of the truck so we don't have any catastrophe going down the road he's got the other running board and the hard part for one of these this is an extra-long nine-

foot

bed the hard thing to get for this is those...

extra long running boards but he assures me that he has the other one got some little doodads in the back off throw those in the back of the truck and the main reason I wanted to get to bed sides actually are not backed on this I've got better fenders yeah it's worth what he's asking for it the bed sides are actually pretty good and that's what once you've really the bed sides and the running boards for what you need for a long horn the offenders are the same as the other ones I'm not picking it apart yeah I'm giving it kudos Kelly that bucket man no no I don't thank you though well it's worse what he's asking for it is the other running board out here but I'm gonna be around right now for a minute you know let the ear startup right actually probably tomorrow but you said you had that running board and you just stand that up in the corner for me don't figure it out all right okay hey I'm gonna let you go a little bit but when I get up there I'll take a shot of Stallions place for you and run it all by it and then when I get a chance out my friends record his gal okay okay good people man yeah that's a sweetheart exhaust leak from this man are those hard to get for that motor the powerful of the cows oh okay yeah two suits forward 3:30 at school but thing about it just about the original oil power well Bob air cleaner on boy that is a big gradient work on yeah is that right look like it is pretty solid pretty...

pickup

I ever roll in that little 79 classic truck rescue ed Harriet unhooked the trailer hit that 49

Chevy

off the back kick over because I found a treasure on Craigslist that frankly I've never seen on Craigslist and I'm meeting this guy in a parking lot I don't like doing stuff like this but this is a super

rare

item I'm gonna go meet this guy over here in the back corner by the tool rental place and I'm really excited about...
this this is a no brainer it's one of those 1955 through 1957 GMC only rocket or jet food ornaments and I did a complete video on these and I'll include the link somewhere in this on that but I'm trying to hurry it meet this guy I found it at 4 o'clock in the morning right when I was getting up and immediately started sending the guy emails and texts and I'm supposed to meet him right over here and the price that he's asking for it's ridiculously low I already have one I always keep one of these hood rockets it's specifically for 55 to 57 GMCs and then I also have one of the even more

rare

58 and 59 only hood rockets and I always keep one but if I come across another one and it's at a reasonable enough price I go scoop it up even if I have to hock my top ramen noodles I keep cases the top ramen just so I can do this stuff a lot of people think I steak every day not true but I think he's right over here I hope he is this one else seems it's almost too good to be true find him I'll be right back I'm running a little bit late I had to stop by the hock shop sell my top ramen noodles hey it's Rick I'm over here between the two oh rental in that discount tire place big black Ford's I'll be back all right so that turned out to be a well worth a trip down here to the Home Depot to get this and a lot of people look at that and say oh if it's all pitted and everything yes it is that it's in good shape...
doesn't have any chips on it the wingtips are in Nice shape and another very important thing is the threaded mounting holes are in good shape has three threaded mounting holes they're in good shape and I've seen these where people are putting the wrong size bolt in there and run them right through the other side of them you get this one over here yeah all the threaded holes are in good shape and it's got the correct part number number on it two three three three seven five six that is incorrect for nineteen fifty five six and seven GMC hood some people call it a hood rocket some people call it a hood jet looks more like a rocket community but they're cool and so what I do it's like I said I always keep one now the 55:37 looks like this it's got the pointed end on it the fifty eight and nine it has kind of a cutoff nose at an angle on it I keep one of each because it's some day and you know when things settle down and my buildings up and all that I do want to do one complete factory correct 55 through seven and one complete factory correct 58 nine so I keep one of these in each style and what I do is when I get a new one in I take it home and I compare it to my other one that I have that's like it and if this one's better I keep this one and I sell off my new one I don't need to have more than one and I don't have to corner the market but as I've said before they only made two thousand of these total for 1955 56 and 57 and...
that's for all the 55 to 57 GMC trucks so only 2000 of these for all those trucks and this is probably I don't know the 6th probably the 6th one I've had so then when I saw this baby on Craigslist on this guy's phone up and what's funny is he bought this in a whole box full of ornaments hood ornaments emblems and stuff like that that he paid $40 for I've seen these go for as much as $1400 and I didn't exactly get it cheap today but I got it for a lot less than that so to me it's it's what I do to pay my bills you know what I mean but also he went ahead and showed me this I believe this is off of an Oldsmobile or something and I told him it was probably worth like 40 50 bucks offered him 30 bucks for it he said hey that sounds good and I'll check on that part number right there to make sure but I believe it's an Oldsmobile item and mounting holes are in good shape on it and the crumbs actually in fairly decent shape on this one and the only reason I got this is because Jamie likes ease and it is cool you know if you're building an old custom truck and you're not doing a factory correct rest row and you're not doing a factory correct resto to go ahead and throw something like that on it so it's always good to have little doodads like that if you can pick him up on the cheap that's fine trust me I did not get away with paying that little for this one but he's happy with what he got I'm happy with what I paid...
for it because I know that I will sell it for considerably more than I paid for it but I can still sell it but I can still sell it cheap enough that whoever winds up putting it on their truck has money left to get it rechromed and feel like they got it at a good price so good deal all around let me get back to the ranch peace out my girl I brought in out here this is the first place he went very first place she went do your job honey good girl good girl check that out truck inspector general doing her job anytime you roll up to the classic truck ranch with a new rig she's almost in there this thing ain't got no floors in it yeah what do you think honey I can't open the door for you right now you seem to be able to get in there on your own what do you think what do you think honey can you get in there I think you could probably get in there if you really wanted to yeah what's in there get it Danny get it get up in there go ahead it's okay truck inspector-general doing her job good girl yeah I let dad get it off the trailer for you honey and I'll get those stores and strapped and you can get on in there it's kind of crusty isn't it yeah that's a good little dog right there but let me get it off the trailer honey you know I'll let you in there okay good girl you're a good girl this is a hood bird I just got and that's where it goes 55 to 57 GMC only trucks they only made two thousand of these emblems for all of the 55 to 57 GMC...
trucks and like I said when I get a new one how does it compare it to the one I had put away this is the one I had put away as you can see it's in pretty nice shape a lot less pitting than this one see the pitting on there but neither one of them have cracks chips dings or anything like that one thing I have noticed that I don't really care for on this one it's got kind of a gold tip good but there's this one little spot right here looks like the maybe just the surface got scraped a little looks like it almost had a gold tint put on it at one time maybe I better hang on anyway put this up for sale and as you can see they both got to seem correct GM part number 2 3 3 3 7 5 5 2 3 3 3 7 5 5 now the difference between the 55 through 57 style and the 5890 style isn't all that much as you can see the wings are pretty much the same backs are pretty much the same the only difference that I've seen on him and by the way he's right here I don't know how many of these they made but I know there are a lot more

rare

than the ones that they made for the 55 through 57 the 58 59 these lines are different on the front of the jet like I guess this would be the intakes where they're vertical on the 55 through 57 you just got one horizontal one on the 58 through 59 and where the 55 through 7 nose comes to a point the 58 + 9 has been kind of whacked off right there that one's not in perfect shape like I said a lot of people screwed up and they put too long...
of bolts in those holes and this is what I was talking about when I got that other one somebody ran the bolt right through there but that can be repaired and this is kind of unobtainium I mean I you know you can get one but good luck and that's the only one I've ever come across that I was able to purchase in you know Oh 13 or 14 years of doing this now that anyway so I'm gonna go ahead and put this one that he just got on eBay because like I said I only have to keep one of these one of each of those I don't have to hoard everything in the world and I do need to get my money back out of this because I'm trying to get back to work on my building and so I just bought it because I knew it was a bargain there's one on ebay right now for buy it now 850 bucks I'm just gonna be honest with you I paid two hundred and eighty dollars for this and that's a no brain or anyone that knows these knows that is a good deal on one of those an excellent deal but I'm gonna go ahead and list this there's one on eBay right now for 850 dollars if you go look it up it's got some serious dance in it it's got scrapes the yeah the chrome is bad on this but it doesn't have any damage on it no scrapes and all the mounting holes are good on it and it's it's legit so that one will go on I'm gonna go ahead and keep this one hold on that one seems to come do a little more of a point than this I don't know decisions decisions yep I'm...
keeping this one I'll put that one just seems like it's a little dull on the end there compared to that do you know what it's legit it's original they're both legit and that neither one of us perfect they're both going to be need to be rechromed I'll put this one up for sale so if you're watching this and you've been looking for one of these forever and I know a lot of guys have its if you're watching this video and the video just came out within the last week it's probably still on eBay because I'm gonna put this on a seven day auction and I'm gonna start it out at $600 it's in better condition than the one that's on there for 850 buy it now so I think that's more than fair just because I got an excellent deal on it doesn't mean I can't make a little money and still give someone else a good deal on it sounds fair to me what are you doing you just can't leave it alone Canyon you can't leave it alone you got to get in there don't ya she's not gonna be happy until she gets inside that truck so I gotta hook that truck back up to that truck drag that truck out go get my Kubota and drag that off of there and make my little daughter happy I know honey I know you need in there I know you're being deprived I understand and Todd wants in that truck so bad she's a good little truck inspector you
