Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1953 GMC half-ton, long box pickup

Old Cars spotlights a reader’s 1953 GMC half-ton, long box pickup.

Michael Alexander is the proud owner of this ’53 GMC hauler. From the looks of the precious cargo in back, it is hauling nothing but smiles for miles.

Michael had this to add about his pick up…

"Here is a photo of my GMC "Rosey".  She is original with just a few upgrades. It has been repainted once, new bed wood, 2 new box panels, radial tires and renovated interior with a reupholstered seat and repainted dash. The original radio and everything else works except the dash lights. She has a 4-speed transmission mated to the original in-line six. It's a very reliable driver and comfortable at 50 mph or lower. She will do 75 flat out!"
