Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

This one deserves to be professionally photographed and documented. Maybe GM would be interested. It should be in a museum somewhere, but you own it so you can do what you want.n

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

Here are some barn pics. (when it was picked from the barn). I dont have any inside the barn photos. Sorry for the quality but these pics were by taking pictures of the actual printed picture. They were not taken with digital camera.

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

Very Cool! Thank you!
Many here have stated that a full documentation is in order. I absolutely agree. However, I totally understand that in order to do that truck justice, the effort on your part will be significant.
I also own a time-capsule type truck and just don't seem to make the time to get that particular documentaion job done.
One thing that holds it up for me is a proper detailing beforehand. The details we are all after here don't necessarily stand out so well under decades of dust. It might be a little easier for you since your truck actually did not see any use.
Another thing that some here might not realize is those details are often less than pretty. 1966 production line methods were NOT in any way similar to todays restoration methods. If it's perfection ya'll expect to see, my guess is you will be sadly disappointed when the pics roll in.
Whatever you decide, or however you do it, any info or pics you provide will be quickly gobbled up by the serious truck fans here. Just know that.
Thanks again!

Was it common for there to be no passenger side mirror?

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

I hate to say it but I would never loan it to a museum. They will never take as good a care of it as you would. Even a few scratches would see the value affected. Sorry, I don't trust museums at all...... they'll move it around and such while displayed and will also clean it--do you trust it out of your site with others "taking care of it"?

That being said you have a few things to consider.
1) Documentation and valuation--Insurance. You need to insure the truck appropriately. If you don't it's a big mistake. One garage fire and you've lost a big chunk of change. Review the insurance and coverage with your broker and note the rarity of the vehicle, they may have special coverage but they might also have special restrictions on use and storage as well.

2) Consider selling it if you don't feel you can maintain it and keep it from deteriorating. Seriously, people looking at it and pawing it will inevitably lead to scratches and nicks and such unless you maintain strict control over it.

I have a few low mile survivors and to be honest they aren't much fun. The history in your family though is what would be important to me as a consideration with selling and that's about it--otherwise it would be off to a significant auction.

Valuation is tough in my opinion. One person mentioned "a life-changing offer" being the only way it would be sold. I don't think the value of this would be life-changing--at least not for me (I consider $1M bucks to be life changing!). Tough to value but I'm sure it would grab a lot of cash if sold to the right buyer and was sold in the right venue.

Anyway, just some opinions per what everyone else is giving here, all of them good. It's a beautiful truck and it would be great to see in a museum or at a show sometime but personally I would never take it out of the garage and it would be up on blocks!

I vote with some here in reaching out to GM and see what they think, perhaps they would want it for their museum. I would display it on some rotating base with period correct car show signage....

Good luck! Dave.

Thanks for the geography lesson My post rambled on, my mistake, only the hubcap info with photo was for your consumption, the rest should have been on a separate post. The "mighty odd" got me going. Anyways, I love to see '67 3/4 tons with '67 3/4 ton hubcaps, painted or chrome, which unfortunately, is few and far between.

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

The camper top was something he had laying around and put it on this truck just to get it out of the way to make more space. I remember when I was younger that he had some old cardboard boxes with tractor parts stored in it.

I'm not saying you're lying about the truck, but aren't those armrests the '72 only style..? I may be wrong

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

I think the spare is on the R/F. the arm rests on '67s are carry-overs from the prior design. I did think the passenger mirror was only an option on the standard trim level and dual mirrors came on mid and upper level.

Don't sweat it. I appreciate what you lend to the sight. You gave great info. I wasn't in the best mood when I responded. Did try to word it lightly, but still a bit snippy I guess.

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.
.

For the record, my Fremont built '67 GMC did have a fawn colored interior, and both the engine side of the firewall and the door jambs were fawn as well. The truck never had a SPID. I think it was a fairly early build.

I forwarded a link to this thread to the manager of the GM Heritage Center and to the Product Manager for the LD Silverado and Sierra.

The Product Mgr sent an email to a couple guys in Marketing and Communications for them to follow up as they see fit.

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

I feel compelled to add to what Dave K. said. Items loaned or donated to museums are at risk. Management can change, which usually brings with it a revised outlook on the future of the enterprise. Ive seen artifacts sold off to reduce inventory or focus the collection in a different direction. When this happens, true ownership of the item(s) is frequently muddled or intentionally ignored, and lost without any paper trail.

This is an unlikely scenario with an operation like the GM Heritage Center, but Id be very concerned about loaning to a local museum.

Beautiful truck by the way, and thanks so much for sharing all the photos and history.

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

As the original post is now almost 3 months old, I am interested in any new developments. Did anyone from GM make a contact? What is the status of the truck now? I haven't seen any mention of a SPID or any other documentation on the truck. It would be great if we could get an update.

Re: 1967 GMC Pickup - Museum Quality

Yes more photos please, you have a gem my friend. The trucks are unique in the collectors world.

Don't sell it, It is a family heirloom worth more than the truck itself, Its about America and its values. From the smart side of post depression era.

Thank you for sharing, everyone here wishes they had something like this.

Very nice truck and great history to boot!

I like the fact it's a family owned since new to.

GM was never real good at keeping data straight as to say this truck was real are not. You have the truck! That says enough about it. I would contact GM and see if they would want to do a complete run down on it for you.

I would make sure you had plenty of insurance on it before doing anything though.
