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

So, here is the compression readings...

Cylinder hone and ring job? Full rebuild?

Any thoughts?

Apparently they feel theres not a big enough market for this product, I think they are very wrong. Nobody has seen more low mileage original trucks with documentation than 60-66, the accurate info he offered has come from many years of extensive research, we are lucky to have him in this hobby and on this forum.

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

Anyone have a good source for the original grey for the 65 283 motors? My 65still retains its factory grey paint. I do have the original grey valve covers for my engine. Also, we have a good automotive paint supplier in our area here in central Pa. I'm thinking about pulling the motor this winter, cleaning things up a little and seems like a good time to respray the block. I could take the valve covers in for a paint match. But, perhaps someone has done a spray card. In the vintage Porsche community, we have a few guys that have done the research on correct paint colors. They offer these paint spray out cards for a small fee. Any thoughts?

I have seen valve covers from dark grey to battle ship grey but I think in the end, if it is grey then you have got it right.

Hello all, I have read through this thing 2, 3 or maybe even more times and still gain something from it everytime. As far as '60-66', you are absolutely my hero. I can't imagine in my dreams these trucks you have or seen. These trucks were built to be used and to have example with such LOW miles and options is just plain awesome.

With all that said I do have a question, I am trying to figure out what color the white colored accent is for the door panels? And is that "white" color only to be in the recess or on the entire center of the panel. I admit I have seen both now. :confused:

My '66 is nothing like your guys have but I am attempting more a resto mod since really only the body and rear end were original. I swore I saw the colors on this write up but I've been wrong before. Any help is appreciated. And keep the info (and pictures) coming...

The white on a '66 door panel would look like this:

I'm not sure. Hopefully one of our fellow factory-correct members with more knowledge can answer that.

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

Hey everyone forgive me if my questions have already been answered in previous posts...(the new guy and not too familiar with site yet) I'm looking for matching paint numbers for my '66 C10. Truck is the 503 Light Green. But need correct match for 250 engine, the fawn firewall, and correct Ivory white for two tone body.

Was there ever a seal or gasket of any type between the inner wheel well and the inner bedside on a fleetside.

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

It looks like it could be a factory inspection mark. Brushed or sprayed-on in a very inconsistent manner as it passes some check station. You often see them on the front suspension where grease has covered and preserved them.

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

What is the timeline on which outside door mirrors heads were used? AFAIK there's the round head offset, round head center mount, and the rectangular (not coast to coast) ones. Did they change at year end, or was it a change over when the old stock ran out?

1959 on back used a center stud like this one. NOS is the best way to figure this stuff out by part number and books. This one they don't have listed completely as its in the parts books till 1959 .
http://www.ebay.com/itm/122359424255...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Then for 1960-1963 they used a thicker mirror , this is an NOS 1960-1963 GMC mirror assembly with the cast 1960-1962 Arm . Its white for GMC , Chevy mirrors are black. Notice three screws around the stem.


Then 1964-1966 has this mirror , thinner design , only one screw and 2 rivets around the stem.


The center stud came back in 1967 and up trucks. The Rectangular mirror was sold as an accessory to mount on the same arm as the round and was offered as a bigger mirror if the owner wanted. There's some controversy that some of the years I've posted on the round offsets snuck into other years. I'm stating what I've found from NOS parts and number applications and original trucks I've had or seen.

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

Getting ready to put my '66 back on the road, & I believe we've decided to pull the 327 engine for some changes. While it's out, I'd prefer to change the color from orange to a more factory correct green. I'm curious what the current consensus is on the correct (I know there's no 100%) shade of green? Upon doing research here on the forum, I've read about the Alpine green being a bit too light & Ford green possibly being the closest. I also read about a Buick green possibly being a close match. Lastly, I saw where a NOS green paint was sprayed out for comparison, but even it was debated as to whether it needed tinting a bit. I'm not sure if that ever took place to get a better match or not. Any updated info on this subject is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for clearing up the mirror question for me 60-66, hoping I have the right one on my 65. I'll be checking when I get home.
