    Yep. I saw that too, yesterday. Looks like crap without aluminum wheels or stainless simulaters. I like how the grass is mowed by it.

    NEW INFORMATION ABOUT THE "STRETCH" AND THE FRAME

    We have just been able to ascertain that these special trucks were special builds by the GM plant in Oshkosh, Wisconsin primarily for the executives running GM plants. A Customer "off the street" could not walk in and buy one.

    They were built for the executives to be able to ride through their plants, as they inspected the "line" and any problems that would arise. They needed the flexibility of being able to carry items to particular positions on the line as well as enough passenger room to be able to show visiting managers and others parts of the plant. They were called, by GM, EXECUTIVE EDITIONS, and there were not very many built. To the best of my knowledge they no longer build them.

    The frames are continuous - not spliced and welded, according to the present owner, whose father was an executive designer with GM at the time. His father was responsible for choosing the material for the interior such as the Belgian Leather (very special) which this particular truck was fitted with on the four captain's seats, back, seat and arm rests. Most of the other examples of this vehicle had cloth interior seats (as in the rear bench in the back of this one); this may be the only one built with the soft, Belgian leatherwork.

    I saw this same truck listed on ebay a long time ago... can't remember for sure when, but it was definitely the same truck. Had the blue topper and everything.

    Shitty job on the repaint - notice the coolers and hardware behind the grille and everything else is painted? Also - the back seat is cloth... the buckets are a transplant. Also - the friggin thing is filthy! (crap on the floor, in the box, missing trim pieces, passenger door-handle trim (interior), etc.

    That truck is a serious POS. Wouldn't surprise me if it's up for sale again because nobody dares to drive it. If it runs...

    If I had that thing, my list of To-Do's:

    I would clean the smurf up that detonated on the inside, that blue/two-tone shit has got to go.
    Topper is gone, bed is gone, plastic foo-foo is gone, visor is gone. Flatbed.
    Diesel Bumper.
    Drive a few hours North to Mr. Heath and have him make everything right in it's world.
    Solid Axle Swap

    WHAT FLOORMATS are in that thing? HOLY CRAP, I've never seen molded floormats that fit a GMT-400 that well.

    From the engine compartment shots, it looks like it was red at one time.

    I like it, in thery. Its ugly, the ground efects and bumper has to go, and the mirrors cap and visor that dont match. I like a 6 door though.

    The one where they also stretch the truth?
    :icon_bs:

    I've always heard that grey goes with almost any other color. Now I know what 'almost' translates too.

    Aparently paint flaws don't translate to the number of 'love-bugs' alowed to burn their way into the paint.
    and
    it is very dusty outside of the Ft Meyers.

    Me, I believe every word of this article, can't wait to add it to my wish list along with that bridge in NYC I keep hearing about that is for sale...just waiting for the price to come down.

    "blown-up smurf" pretty funny...

    No kidding! I'd like to get my hands on a couple sets of those too! Anyone else ever seen them and know where to get them?

    As for the two-tone interior, well I'm a liker. I don't know why but I think the blue and grey looks good. Once, many years ago, I looked at a regular cab short box 4X4 on a GM dealers lot. It was a light brown/gold color and had a tan interior with teal carpet! The Z71 stickers on the box were teal too. When I first saw it I swallowed a little bit of puke in the back of my throat and walked away, but the more I thought about it the more I liked it. It was used, but new enough that I couldn't imagine someone doing that to it, but I couldn't see GM doing it either! I still wonder about that rig and I still wish I had gone back.......
