Interesting Web Page

While searching the web for my wish list of items on Chummy I came across this page for we owners of the GMC P-30 chassis. I am not sure how realiable it is and maybe those of you with more technical expertise can vouch for it, or not. Here is the opening paragragh:

"There are many parts for your GMC that can be obtained very inexpensively by a trip or two to your local junkyard. Your savings can be significant, depending on the items you select and the amount of clean-up or repair you are willing to do. Sometimes, depending on the circumstances, your trip can mean the difference between getting to your destination in a timely manner or sitting in a repair shop or parking lot waiting for the part to be shipped."

He then goes on in a rather orderly fashion to list the parts which crossover from a commonly found vehicle to our chassis.

here is the wb site: http://www.gmcws.org/Tech/junkyardgems/


Happy Hunting

That link is for the GMC front wheel drive motorhomes, not the P-30 chassis used under the classic Airstream motorhomes.

GM built the GMC motorhomes using a modified Toronado front wheel drive engine and transaxle and a host of parts from the GM parts bins.

The P-30 is basically a one ton comercial van chassis, and there are a lot of bread trucks out there that could be used for parts. Plus, NAPA can get you almost anything you need to get it going overnight.

If you have not seen the GMCs they are very cool, many have been restored and upgraded. Check out the GMCcoop.com where they not only restore those, but Airstreams as well.
