Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

Priceless! Thanks so much for posting this gem. This truck is the ultimate historical reference source. Unfortunately, this model truck is rarely seen in its original configuration. Hope this truck becomes a inspiration for others to restore a '67 GMC 3/4 ton to factory standards, yes that means correct wheels and hubcaps, which are so critical to the "factory dealership look".

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

I agree with factorystock. And I for one would really like to see some high resolution images of the the truck especially the engine compartment.

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

Nice truck! It is a rare color for a 67 GMC. Does it have a Spid label? I am also surprised it does not have chrome hubcaps as the Customs do in literature.

I have 2 interestingly optioned 67 GMC's to restore and would love to have good pics of this to use as a reference. This would also look good along side those if your dad ever decides he wants to sell

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

Beautiful truck. I understand about the old guys back then. "if it ain't broke, then don't fix it" I heard that so many times in my younger days. And " What? there ain't nothing wrong with THIS one yet!"

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

I would almost venture to say you should contact Chevrolet headquarters and invite them to do a write up on it. I am interested to know what your plans are with it? Loan it to a museum? Drive it? Sell it? Inquiring minds want to know...

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

i bet Chevrolet would love to have a Chevy in this state. But, GMC would be the one to contact since that's what it is and General Motors Company is the parent company

No, I don't think its odd, its correct. What is lacking is the info on GMC's in this early era. GMC's are obviously different in many ways, trim levels and options are not always well documented due to lack of SPIDS (some were not built with them). And also due to lack of factory literature on these trucks.1966 CHevy pickups have SPIDS, 1966 GMC pickups do not have SPIDS. It may have taken till mid in the model run at some assembly plants for '67 GMC pickups to have SPIDS. The firewall interior paint is common on some East Coast assembly plants ( especially Ponitac Mi .) and some mid West assembly plants. If this truck was built in Fremont, firewall would have been body color. Here is a period '67 photo of a '67 GMC with the same trim level. It has the same painted hubaps, but wheels are 17" instead of the 16" on the low mileage pickup. It is a 1 ton chassis cab also, instead of a 3/4 pickup, should be the same trim rules. I believe this truck should go to a museum for sure. General Motors, if they were smart should be contacting you, not the other way around, for the price they spend on a 30 sec commercial. Taking a truck like this out on the road is too much of a risk, only takes a second,being at the wrong place at the wrong time, for its value to plummet.

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

You guys are all a wealth of knowledge on these things. I have learned more about this truck in two days then I have in a year of checking around on the web.

Honestly, what kind of realistic value would you all put on a truck like this? I know auction values can be swayed greatly by over the top bidders and the BarnFind auctions that seem to be popping up.

I think it would be awesome if GM were to contact our family especially if it could be used for a commercial spot along side the newer GMC trucks.

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

I don't think this is something you can put a price on. If you were to sell it to the right private collector I would think you could pretty much name your price but I don't believe it belongs there. It either belongs with you or GMC. IMO it is worth contacting GMC to see what they say.

That's an unbelievable truck and great story. It looks like it could be sitting in a showroom from back in 1967. Thanks for sharing. Any more pictures would be appreciated!

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

Crazy. Just crazy. Like all the others here, I wanna see the pics with 40 years of dust and grime on it. Also underneath.
Question: Was it stored like it was going to be there long-term, or just parked and forgotten?
Who knows how many more are out there like this. Not many, but they ARE out there.

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

This is just like the lambrecht chevrolet... except not forgotten to rot in a field for 45 years... and y'all saw what those trucks brought.

I think you would be doing everyone here a great service if you would literally take hundreds of pics and document any markings, chalk codes, paint dots or marks, etc you find.

Without getting technical about it I was simply stating "it is odd it has painted hubcaps". I didn't say anything about them not being correct. It is most common to see a Custom with chrome hubcaps "optioned", which would also be "correct". I'm pretty up on these GMCs, but thanks for spreading knowledge to those in need. Don't take this as being nasty, but I'm into geography, too, and while Michigan is certainly in the East (east of the Mississippi), it is by no means on the East Coast. It is nearly in the Mid-West. Technically speaking, Pennsylvania isn't a coastal state because no land borders on the Atlantic Ocean
