Sometimes something catches your eye that you just have to circle back and take a look at. This is one of those cases. In Unionville, there is a building that looks to be a classic car warehouse and showroom. Outside sits this great old truck.
An Unusual View – Horse in a 1950 GMC 350Truck
This was one of those cases. It was almost like I was indulging my inner child who wanted to stop and take a look at just about every strange site during our family vacation trips in the 1960s.
This GMC truck was behind a bunch of faded storefronts in Unionville. I think one of the buildings was used to store classic vehicles. My best guess is that this is a 1950 GMC 350 Dump Truck
About the 1950 GMC Dump Truck
The GMC 350 Dump Truck was developed by General Motors in 1950, and it was the first of its kind to be built as a dump truck. It had a capacity of 2,500 pounds, and it could be used by both commercial and private customers.
The 1950 Chevy truck looked very much like the previous two years’ models. The powertrain was a 216.5 cubic inch 6 cylinder engine, the Rochester B carburetor, and s simple 3 or 4 gear manual transmission.
The truck was the first step in a long line of trucks that would eventually become the modern-day Chevy Silverado.
I do not have a clue about the situation with the horse. However, I’m sure this truck would turn some heads if it was at any Michigan Truck Stops
