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

Hi. Wondering what colour the back side of the parking light bezels in a 1961 GMC would be? I think the inside was some sort of cadmium plating? Is the outside the same? Or black? Or? Thanks.

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

Hello All,

Does anyone have any formulation information for the acrylic primers for GM cars and trucks during the years 1965-1967? I have an old code or two that I'm interested in learning more about GM-3, and GM-44. I believe the first code is for an acrylic primer, and the second is for an actual paint.

Any and all information would be extremely helpful.

Todd

Couple questions:

For the factory 327 engine air cleaner/breather, what sheen of black would be correct? Semi-gloss, gloss, satin?

Also, what kind of paint are you guys using for the exhaust manifolds? I assume cast iron gray would be correct?

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

1966 factory exhaust system question.

I have a stock 1966 short bed with an inline 6 250 and 3 speed manual trans. It came with the exhaust manifold but no exhaust system. There is also no flange, gasket, hangers or brackets. I have found and purchased a new system (front pipe, muffler and tail pipe). It however didn't include the rest of the parts or any installation instructions. Does anybody have any diagrams, photographs, etc. that would help me figure out what parts I still need and how the whole system should be installed? Thanks.
