Hi guys, I'm a new member and proud new owner of a '66 GMC Handibus. I bought it in Chatanooga and drove it home to Sarasota, Fl. so I guess you could call it a runner. I bought a set of disk brakes, a 700R4 tranny and an air conditioner system from Old Air.com. I'll post pics of the progress. Thanks in advance for any guidance.

Welcome to VV Sam. I'd say you're half way there being a runner, congrats. What are your plans for the old girl?

Well let's see. I want to use it for my carpentry business. We're going to rebuild the I-6, swap in the automatic, a front disc brake kit from Wilwood and an "old air" a.c. system. I need to tighten up the steering and sort out the cooling system. I'm sure you know that there will be a million more little things along the way but that's cool. When I get the mechanics straight, I'll worry about paint. If I can figure out how to post a picture, I will. Thanks for the reply.
