No idea Brian,

doesn't show up anywhere as 4 x 2, 6 x 4, 4 x 4, or 6 x 6.

the only quantity truck I can think of was the model immediately before the ordinary GMC 6 x 6, which was rated at 3 ton rather than 2.5


Let us know if you find out.

Could it be a GMC AFKX-352? They had 1 1/2 - 3 ton. Thanks Andy

Hi Brian
One of our local members has the remains of a 3 ton 4x4 cab over Chevy.
I forget the number, but it oiriginally had a maintenance/radio box on back.
this truck is a big sucker, 8 lug wheels, 427 cubic inch 6 cyl motor.
Unfortunatly the truck is in very sad shape, no rear body and front sheet metal is all but gone.
Ernie
