Sorry for so many questions but this is a rare opportunity to find out what types of preparation and finishes were used.
I don't mind the questions at all. Ask away.
Black sealer/primer on hood, fenders, and box. Red oxide on cab and doors. Underside of hood is low gloss black.

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

Do you think the black finish under the hood could be the same as on top of the hood? In other words, they simply primed the whole thing but painted the top?

I will look at the data plate next time I am out there and see if there is a paint code....

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

Two Tone Paint on 60-61 GMC How does the two tone paint work on the firewall to the front of the cab. In other words, is the bottom color continued to the firewall up to the cowl and the white painted on the bolt on parts, fender cowls, vent cover(part that covers the vent and has the wiper drivers). I'm not sure I would be correct and I haven't seen the firewall's of factory two tone GMC's

I found this old truck today, I beleive it to be an original one owner truck... I thought the two tone on the door panels and dash might be helpful to someone. notice the chevrolet in script on the glovebox door

Nice find, hard to believe that all of the knobs and the script are still in there! I am not 100% positive but I think that the script was only in 60..

Bottom pic is a slightly better preserved version of what you saw. I nabbed this photo from another good reference thread. See post #12 from Jonzcustomshop for a KILLER '60. http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=439322

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

In my literature they define the color as Charcoal Black on the Dispatch Box. Is the color the same all over the dash and door inserts or is it two tone?

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

One thing i noticed on both of my trucks and even on some at the junkyard is a light lime-green-yellowish color under the black inside the hood. dont think its a coinsidence, maybe a plant specific paint scheme. srry couldnt get a good pic of the color.

I think I know what you are talking about. I'm guessing it's zinc chromate primer. For mid-year Corvettes, this yellow/green primer must be present in certain places in order to pass the rigorous inspection of their knowledgeable NCRS judges.

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

after scanning a good original and retouching it, i have got a open ended file that you can add your option list to. not sure about earlier trucks but 64-66 used this on the glove box door. pm me if you want this file...

after printing on thin card stock i stained with weak coffee and sprayed with matte finish clear... looked great

Your message area is full and I couldn't send you a PM. I'll try again later but I would like a copy of the file. You did a great job and it will be a great addition to my truck since the original is missing. Thanks

Very nice! SPIDs started in 1966 though, so it's only correct for that one year.

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

These came with my Grandpa's 1965 ... the first is a SPID or list of all options that came with the truck ( what ever they called it in 1965 ). The second is a sheet where it was gone over at the dealer ( all fluids and pressures checked ) before it was turned over to my Grandpa.

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

heres another little detail thing i got together. scanned a decent aluminum gvw tag off the leftside kick panel and touched it up. then took it to a screenprinter who printed 6 up on sheet aluminum in a medium blue/grey color. i cut them out, stamped the right numbers in and drilled the rivet holes. had a pretty nice new looking tag.

not sure what years had this but i'll offer the artwork for any guys anal enough to do the same. clem@hogeye.com

That looks good! I used a slightly different process back when I made one for a '65 I restored.
