Cohort Outtake: Big GMC Truck With IFS

GMC truck IFS 1960-1962

The CC Effect works at the Cohort too. Just a couple of weeks ago we took a look at the independent front suspension on 1960-1962 Chevrolet and GMC trucks, but the featured truck was a 1966, as a stand-in. And here’s the real thing, posted by John Lloyd, and shot in Oroville, WA. The lower control arms are very visible here. This one is of course also sporting the GMC V6 engine.

Now if any of you Photoshoppers have nothing better to do, what I’ve always wanted to see is a Chevy or GMC truck of this vintage sporting a cab from a ’59 El Camino; maybe even the hood too. These cabs have a bit of a “flying wing’ on the roof, but it’s aimed the wrong direction. And the visibility just isn’t good enough.

Maybe it would be easier in profile?
