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

I just went out to pick up doors number 10 & 11 and there was a 63 cab sitting there with that exact seat and material in it.

Not a great shot but to give you an idea of what it should look like from the factory

LT1 Burb

Was it in good shape fabric wise? This fabric apparently broke down quite easily. Though there was a seat protector/cover as an option, the plastic kind did not help the situation as it would retain humidity in the fabric as well as bacteria and the seat would rot out faster. I was advised that if I ever found an original seat protector to install it only for show. Was the vinyl Fawn or Red?

I have to get to my storage locker where my long bed is and take pics of chalk marks and the ac stuff, both of the shortbeds weren't worthy of anything. Aero, the seat was fawn and thrashed.

DISCLAIMER:

All the scans I post are simply to promote discussion and to visually allow us all to see what the subject matter is pertaining to, or used as an visual aid to possibly clarifying matters. I do not claim to be an expert in any way and I appreciate and encourage anyone who can contribute their experiences and their own literature to the discussion.
I guess in having an short attention span and I believe poor reading skills, I'm attracted to the GM literature to clarify GM's original position on the subject matter at hand.

The seat below is a factory deluxe seat from 1962. About a hundred thousand miles on this one, and it's in close to perfect shape. I can't explain how it lasted so well, but I can tell you when I got the truck in about 1998, it was completely flawless. I've been stupid and left the windows down in the rain, and basically just used it like the work truck it is, hence the light staining on the left side.

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

oem4me The 62 interior has a white steering wheel is it painted white over a black base? The steering column and lower dash section below the gauge cluster as well as the Gauge surround are they painted white as well? The Glovebox, does it have the black in the center and the white as the instrument panel section?

Do you know what plant produced your K20 and what the paint code is? My 63 C10 was/is Brigade Blue on the firewall , not fawn.

Yep, white over black wheel. White column and surround. Glove box is fawn. It appears like the one in the Custom Comfort option illustration above, only no red. Oddly, other options include side trim, soft ray glass, and a radio, but it's NOT a custom cab. It's got painted bumpers, plain rubber window gaskets, and had stock black wheels and painted caps before I bastardized it.
I can't recall seeing many non Custom Cab trucks with side trim before. I dunno ...maybe I just forgot.

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

On your 62,
black primered hood, black underneath?
Black primered fenders
Black primered box?
Doors?
Red Oxide primered cab?

Sorry for so many questions but this is a rare opportunity to find out what types of preparation and finishes were used.

I noticed in a few factory photo's the doors rear view mirror hanging like a pendulum instead of upright. Also black mirror head with body color arm like on your truck.
