GMC Tipper

Our 1944 GMC CCKW 353 Tipper was purchased by us in 2011 from a movie vehicle hire company and was in a bit of a rough state. It went straight into our workshop and had a complete sand blast (pictured above) and re-spray as well as some light engine repairs and a complete overhaul of the brakes. With a little WD40 on all the linkages and some very minor tweaks the tipper system is now fully operation as well! This one appeared in Saving Private Ryan and also the series Band of Brothers. She still runs the original GMC 270 6-Cylinder Petrol.
