Hello from Manitoba Canada, I recently purchased an old wrecker White Westernstar truck, I believe its 1967, the reason I suspect this is the unusual 12 digit VIN code LANCCGV678101, was manufactured in Kelowna British Columbia Canada, contacted Volvo, WesternStar, GMC, Freightliner ect, this vin means nothing to them, nowhere on the internet on any site has any information on this would be greatly appreciated, Thanks


Post a picture and maybe someone can help. We like pictures. Welcome to our site.

Ahhh, there's nothing like the smell of diesel fumes in the morning.

For governments who try to tax themselves into prosperity is like standing in a bucket and trying to lift themselves up by the handle.

The tire size and six stud wheels do not suggest a heavy duty truck. It could be they were on the lighter end of what GMC considered its heavy duty line though. Possibly the 600 series. From pictures in the GMC Heavy Duty Trucks book, it appears the headlight placement puts them in the later years of that style truck. The medium duty styling changed in late 1947, the heavy duty line changed in 1949. It looks like the picture could have been taken when they were new.

I took a closer look at the trucks. Neither had right windshield wipers nor right mirrors. That was the norm prior to WII in the mid west. My dad started driving trucks in about 1925-26. I could never get over some of our trucks (1930s models and into 1940) not having right mirrors. He said that was the way it was and that you stretched the neck a bit to see if any vehicles were on your right side. (my neck was not that long, so I insisted on right mirrors)

Could someone please help me date this GM truck and any information regarding it please? I've been trying to get a rough date of the photograph and this will help.

Thanks!
Would appear that they have 1949 Kentucky plates.

Basic AC models made from 39-'47, guessing these could be '46-47 because of the chrome. I'll guess AC 750 , about a 35,000 GVW chassis .
