Re: most original 60-66 truck in existence?

here are some very nice examples of mostly original '65 Chevy shortbeds...while it states the one in SC has been repainted once, i'm pretty sure the one in MS has definitely been painted as well...i just randomly came across these today...and what sparked my interest is the fact that I moved from Brandon, MS to SC last year....and Summerville, SC is just up the road from where i live now....that said, i'd be glad to look at the one in Summerville for anyone interested....and i have forum member friends in the Brandon area who i'm sure wouldn't mind checking out that one as well....just wanted to share:

http://www.cars.com/for-sale/vehicle...nal&listType=1

http://www.cars.com/go/search/detail...&&aff=national

dang, just noticed the one in SC says it has a replacement engine...but i wonder if that's a rebuild or what?

Re: most original 60-66 truck in existence?

Both of my "drivers" are pretty unmolested. Ones a 66 C10 with the factory 327 and the other is a 61 K10 both were bought from the original family owners and they both still had the original shocks. The 61 was only on its second set of tires in its life which were shot from sitting around, but theres not a thing added to it that wasnt from the factory. As for the 66, the only thing ive really done to it is rebuild the carb and wire it. They are good examples of how things were.

Re: most original 60-66 truck in existence?

Well, I have a 62 that was used as a plumbing truck. It has some plumbing modifications (racks and toolboxes) and hasn't been used in 20 years, but is still stock. It's going to be my project truck over the summer. I found it out back at my dads plumbing business underneath a pile of junk. I think I might start a build post for it.

Re: most original 60-66 truck in existence?

Wow, how cool is that. Looks like you have some work ahead of you just extracting it from its resting place! The old wire wheel looks to have been there for quite a while as well.

Welcome to the forum! Look forward to your build thread.

The roof is going to require some serious attention. Nice truck w/family history is always a plus.

Re: most original 60-66 truck in existence?

Though I would post some pictures of our 1966 GMC Fleetside. 18,000 original miles. Truck was bought new in Miami Oklahoma. Truck sat in a repair shop garage of the original owners off Route 66 in Baxter Springs Kansas all its life. Had a camper shell on the back for a short time. Options include 305V6 with powerglide trans, Dual GMC spotlights,Hazard Flasher,Power Steering, Power brakes, big back window, bumper guards, Custom Cab. Added was Frigitte AIR Under dash AIR. All the red paint you see is 99% original from 1966, truck had a step bumper I removed and put a factory chrome bumper on instead, had to do a small touch up on the bottom of each qtr panel from the step bumper. The white on top of the bed was touched up due to the camper shell.Interior all stock from 1966. Truck runs and drives like a new truck.

Re: most original 60-66 truck in existence?

Heres my 66 C10. Took all the trim off of it so I can buff it out and paint the white stripe again. Project took a little detour when we brought it out to the farm to haul lumber for the chicken coop. But I will be getting back to getting it all cleaned up and looking a little better. All original except the new wiring. Kind of hard to follow an 18,000 original mile truck though! haha

Re: most original 60-66 truck in existence?

So nice. How'd the engine compartment fair? It seems as far as the low milers go, the more prone the original owners were to cleaning the engine, the worse they did over time.
Let 'em be and give 'em to me, I say.

Thanks for posting photos 60-66! This truck is exactly what this thread is all about! Beautiful time capsule of a '66 GMC. IMO, this '66 GMC has joined ranks with oem4me '66 Chevy, as the most original trucks in existance. EXcellent reference for someone doing a factory restoration ( wish there were more done up stock this way). I brought up the differences in GMC's before, and your truck proves my point. It has the blacked out area between hood scoops ( near hood latch) to look like one large hood scoop. Also black fender tubs found on GMC's built in Pontiac Michigan. I assume the firewall is fawn on your truck also. One request, please show a close up shot of the "Custom" emblem. If I am correct it is not all chrome, it should have red and white paint stripes below the "Custom" logo. In a world were most everything is modified for one reason or another, it is a treat to see a GMC looking the way it did in 1966.(except for that photo with the car style full wheel covers of course)

I want to thank everyone for the positive comments on the truck. This truck is one of my favorites. I need to get some pictures of the engine but right now the truck is on a lift in storage. Will get it down and get some pictures of the engine.

Re: most original 60-66 truck in existence?

Thanks Factory stock. The firewall on this one is all red but I think some fawn color is peaking through. Yes the Custom emblems are Red and White striped. Its on a lift in storage so it will be awhile before I can snap more shots. I've had these emblems NOS before and your definitely correct on the red and white. Most I see are just white striped ?? I also had a low mile 63 Custom one Ton panel that still had its original red and white striped Emblems. The full wheelcover photo is the day I picked it up in Baxter Springs KS coming out of the old shop it was stored in, I agree those hubcaps were ugly.

Re: most original 60-66 truck in existence?

Except for the wheels, steering wheel, carpet, radio, and aluminum valve covers, sliding rear wind and 6000 rivet holes for the tonneau cover, mine seems pretty close to original. 73,000 miles, 69,000 of which were in Arizona between time of purchase, and 1986.

I really like the paint scheme on your truck, and the old school snap on tarp. Those were very popular when I was a kid.

Re: most original 60-66 truck in existence?

They are still out there this one was really a "barn find"

My buddy just pulled this out of a barn in elk grove ca. from the 1 st owner , has it running and driving already with a new carb,only thing thats been replaced is the carb,bed wood was replaced with plywood some where along its life,tires,wiper blades,and locking gas cap but the owner saved the o.g. gas cap and put it in the glove box........and he got it cheap...

Thanks Markeb, Been thinking about whether to cahnge the colour or not, I think not. The tonneau is white, I took it off when it was cool out, need a hot day to get it back on... shrinkage!
