Owner: Roger Uttecht
My name is Roger Uttecht. My truck is a 1950 GMC 3/4 ton Pick-up. I did a frame up restoration on my truck over a 2 year period. I used quite a few parts from Jim Carters antique truck parts. The Website provided me with quite a bit of information about what my truck was originally equipped as well as paint colors on the engine and so forth. The truck was originally green, but I painted it to look like a 1952 Chevy Dime Bank that Harley Davidson Motor company put out in 2000. I am the General Manager at Frontier Harley-Davidson in Lincoln, NE. This was the first time that I have ever done anything as intense as this, but it was a labor of love. I had a 1949 GMC when I attended the University of Nebraska so I always wanted to restore one after graduation. I have restored everything to original except for the paint. I stained the hard yellow pine instead of painting it and added white wall tires. The engine is a 228c.i. GMC with a 4 speed transmission. I love driving this old truck, it gets looks wherever we go, and an occasional story from a few people too. I hope it is good enough for your feature truck section. thanks.
