The Targa Truck – 1971 GMC Truck

This is as complete as the Targa Truck has looked in quite some time. The fenders (what’s left of them), rad support, and hood have been installed to mock up front end fabrication. They’ll be coming right back off.

This was Mark’s prototype for the proposed cooling system. Cool air would come in through the front, pass through the coolers in the middle, and make its way out the top in hopes of trying to keep heat out of the engine bay. Unfortunately this design, though really neat, was found to be somewhat impractical, and was abandoned for the time being.
