Re: Nostalgia - Pics in Time.

Here's a couple of pics of a 61 GMC I had back in the mid 80's. I was in the Air Force stationed in Jacksonville, Arkansas and picked the truck up locally. Drove it daily, even made a trip to Rantoul, Illinois in Jan '87. While in Illinois I had the fun of replacing the front wheel bearings (ball type) in the front driveway of a high school friend, in the snow nonetheless.
If memory serves me, I think all together, parts and grease cost right at $100.00 back then. I remember reading on this board that the parts are about that amount per side now.
Like a fool, that I was back then, I sold the truck when I found a '72 Monte Carlo that I just couldn't live without. Then I sold that car when I was being sent overseas...

Also, here's a pic of my dad back in the late 60's with his work truck...

Thanks "LostMy65" for the heads up on this thread...

Too bad I was young and dumb when I owned that truck, didn't know what a gem I had... But, that's called living and learning!

I would guess, one in ten of us sold a vehicle we wish we hadn't.
I did, but 25 years later I found it and bought it back.

One in 10? probably more like 9 in 10! (at least if you're over about 25)

Re: Nostalgia - Pics in Time.

Great pics guys! While the commercial-type photos are cool, I love seeing the old personal photos. Nothing like real memories you have of an old truck.

Saw this one on Facebook the other day:

Great photos, too bad the original photo wasn't taken in color also. Looks heavy duty with those 16" lock ring wheels. A 60's 3/4 ton with original wheels is not a common site today.

This one amazes me. That must have been a massive wrecker as the car hanging on the back appears to be a Cadillac weighing nearly 5,000 pounds:

64 or 65 GMC 2500. Note hood scoop paint treatment when new. Factory painted the center section between hood scoops black to give the effect of one long hood scoop. This detail is lost on 99 % of repainted '62 thru '66 GMC's.
