1948 Extended Cab GMC

A GMC with a little friend - Larry Hammon's 1948 Extended Cab GMC pick-up and
matching 34 Ford trailer

by Society Staff - Seen at 2018 Piston powered show

We like trucks at No Limits and when we came upon Larry Hammon's beautiful black and cream extended cab 1948 GMC pick-up AND a matching 1934 Ford trailer, we had to know more. Larry is an amateur work-at-home fabricator and customizer and built this stunning 48. Larry's inspiration was his 1977 Ford F250 extended cab pick-up (which he still owns). He selected a 1948 for two reasons: First, when he acquired the truck 15 years ago, vehicles manufactured up to 1948 were the only ones allowed in the National Street rod Association's shows (this has since been changed) and second, Larry likes the look of the 48 GMC over the same year Chevy.

He purchased the truck from a Wisconsin owner and it was in pretty good shape according to Larry. Once home, Larry began the customization. The truck cab was stretched 22 inches to accommodate the extension. The extended body sits on a 1980 Pontiac Trans Am sub frame with a Chevy 350 and TH/350 engine and trans combo for power. The rear is a Chevy 10 bolt and Larry installed 4-wheel disc brakes all around.
