Yes, they are still around. I have only ordered one part from them but my dad ordered quite a bit from them when he was going through a '63. Neither one of us had any problems.

I found them to be a little more expensive than others, however they had some parts that I had a hard time finding (brake cables).

It's not the same as it was. The company sold. Seems like the original guy was Seth Doulton. Now it's not even in California anymore. I believe it's called Golden State Parts now. If it ain't in California, it certainly isn't "Golden State", but I'm sure the new guy wanted to keep the same image.

When I tried to pay them a visit in November in California their showroom there had just closed, they only had the Nevada location at that point, not sure if anything has changed since then.

They moved to Carson City Nevada. One of my employees shops there all the time. He seems pleased with them. We are going to do a ground up restoration on his 67 short step this winter. He's been getting all his parts there.

YEP .. THEY MOVED TO CARSON CITY NV. , JUST ABOUT 1 1/2 MILES FROM MY HOUSE. I NEEDED A SMALL PART FOR A TRUCK THAT I WAS BUILDING A
COUPLE OF YEARS AGO RIGHT AFTER THEY MOVED HERE. THEY WERE ABOUT FOUR TIMES THE PRICE OF LMC, WHO IS NOTORIUSLY HIGH PRICED. THEY WERE SO HIGH THAT I ASKED TO SPEAK WITH SOMEONE ELSE THERE, AS I WAS SURE THERE HAD TO BE SOME KIND OF MISTAKE. I PRICED ABOUT SIX OR SEVEN DIFFERENT ITEMS & EVERY ONE WAS AT LEAST THREE TIMES THAT OF THE NEAREST PRICE OF THEY'RE COMPETITER. I CERTAINLY CAN'T AFFORD TO SHOP THERE. IT TOO BAD TOO BECAUSE THEYRE JUST AROUND THE CORNER FROM ME. THEY HAD A BOOTH SET UP AT A LOCAL CAR SHOW, & I VOICED MY CONCERNS ABOUT THEY'RE PRICING, & THEY EXPLAINED THAT MOST OF THEY'RE BUSINESS IS FROM CONCORSE FORD PARTS, & THOSE CONCORSE PEOPLE WILL PAY ANYTHING.
THEY SHOULD HAVE CHANGED THE NAME TO JUST GOLDEN PARTS.

Re: Golden State Pickup Parts

Golden State Pickup Parts deserves some credit for the "C/10 Craze" they started. I bought my '68 Stepside in 1973. It was a 5-year-old used truck. Big deal. Lots of people had them. There was no sense of the cameraderie that import owners and Jeep entuusiasts had with each other. Back in the day, if you could not get a part from the dealer, you had to scour the junkyards to get the same part (hopefully) in better condition than your broken one.
GSPP changed that. They started selling those hard to find items that dealers wouldn't stock anymore.
They also promoted the "Breed'': [ One of GM's media campaigns was to call the new design for MY 1967, 'The New Breed of Truck'. Didn't stick as well as "Advanced Design" or "Task Force" but I still remember it.] GSPP published a newsletter, along with their catalog, called, "Pickups and Panels in Print". Enthusiasts could submit some shots of their rigs and notes on how they acheived their look, effect or modification. Info on gatherings, rallies, shows was printed. 'How to' articles were presented.
After a decade or so, they were no longer the only game in town for 67-72 truck parts, and competition for market share increased. Other vendors got involved, LMC, being the biggest.
Also the Internet happened.
I had a [print] subscription to "Chevy Trucks" magazine. They also had a fledgling website. By the Later Ninties, they faltered, and their website led me to this one that Josh started. I lurked for a few years then joined in 2002. There were some other sites, "Stovebolt Truck forum" [Pre-'72 GM trucks] and ''Colorado K/5'' [Blazer-specific forum], but "67-72 Chevy Trucks dot Com'' was the best informed and friendliest of the lot.
The rest is history.
