most original 60-66 truck in existence?

This may seem like a self serving ploy for attention, but I am truly interested to know where the best preserved 60-66 trucks and suburbans in existence are, who's got 'em, and how/where did they find 'em.
Yes, I'm aware this site is visited mostly by guys who prefer modified trucks, but it seems a pretty active bunch, and I know at least a few originality freaks are lurking.
So, sound off with the most incredible finds you've seen or heard of, and please post pics if you have them.
I'll start the thread going with my 66 C-10, 8900 mile barn find.

Nice looking truck. There's some original trucks here.
This is my 65 K-10 that's all original except for the wheels.
It was a Dept of Game and Inland Fisheries truck.

Those trucks are gorgeous and doing anything to them but preserving them would be a crime.

I'll never have the wallet or the patience to do a real resto, nor would I ever get my money back, so I'll stick to picking up junkers and restoring some form of life to them and admiring those stock beauties whenever I see them.

In the pictures above, the truck is just as I got it from the original owners (save for clean up). It's all orig including the tires!
Since then, I repainted both bumpers which (sadly) had been quickly redone before the sale. Otherwise, no cosmetic restoration.
Here's the story from an older thread:http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...29#post4304629

Anybody know who owns this truck or what the story is? All I have is a picture and a note saying it's a 12,000 miler.

Very cool! Oh, and I park my rig and trailer in that lot at LAEC frequently for horse shows. ;)

Beautiful trucks guys...

If there were more examples like these around I’m sure there would be far more owners interested in preserving or restoring them, I know I would. Unfortunately most received no better treatment than a lawn mower or a garden shovel, leaving precious few to be found in such immaculate condition.

I never tire of looking at your truck. It is truly breathtaking.

Great idea for a thread! It looks oem4me takes the prize so far. Your trucks, C 10 and the Suburban, are the cleanest most original trucks I have ever seen. Your colection takes the 60 thru 66 era to the next level. This era should be right up there with the best of any popular truck or car series ever made. Finding a clean low mileage truck that was not used commerically, is a rarity in these years.Hopefully many will learn from this thread and treat this era of truck the same way other eras of trucks and cars are treated, with more respect. People who own collector 55-57 T birds or 65 thru 67 GTOs etc. just don't drop them, change the wheels and paint them any old color that tickles their fancy.When it comes to this era truck, personal prefences seem to be more important than historical accuracy. There is a sad mentality, "its just a truck". Just a few years back, many people on this site didn't realize the 283 was painted a grayish color, the 250 was blueish , the 292 and 327 was green. And the same people probably thought the bed wood came varnished oak, not painted black. When we get more serious, the trucks will be taken more seriously.

Yes, I remember the red truck. It was VERY interesting, except the new paint and cheesy wheels. It's a good example of how unknowingly, somebody can wipe away rarity, history, and real value by "improving" it with a paint job. I actually don't know what is was like before, but my guess is it should have been left alone.

Another collector who likes low mile trucks sent me this awhile back. 5300 miles.
I think it sold for $21000 at auction. An incredible find, just too bad it had every conceivable accessory drilled into it. OOF!

A 25k mile all original paint base model '64 GMC. Was offered for sale about 10 years ago in Hemmings for 15K. Note factory optional "Retrac" mirrors, center of hood scoop painted black, rear fender tubs and wood also painted black. Interior was also immaculate with excellent original seat upholstry.

I'm one of the guys that love there truck modified and custom but I loving this tread.

Re: most original 60-66 truck in existence?
 
I'm not convinced that a lot or all of these trucks really have that many low miles. It's very easy to stop the odometer from spining. I even know people who do it on new trucks to keep the milege low. One month conected one moth disconected. Just saying, you never know.

BEAUTIFUL truck! Everybody I know with these trucks has them bagged and everything, which I like, but I like to be different too, so here lately I've been thinking about raising mine up a lil or just putting some bigger tires on it. Still aint decided but I think this truck helped me out quite a bit. :chevy:

This was for sale on the internet for a long time, but I donít remember if it was original or restored:
