GM Heritage Center
The General Motors Heritage Center is home to hundreds of the world's most significant cars and trucks. It also houses a massive collection of archived documents, artifacts and assorted automobilia. From original brochures, manuals and build sheets, to rare examples of badging and signage, this unique and growing repository reflects the historical accomplishments upon which GM is building its future.

Look under Archive - Vehicle Information Kits for a downloadable file containing a lot of free information about your truck! Just so you know, that information is also available in the shop manuals, which you can still find used or you can buy a reprint from a vendor.
