I had no idea. Sooo much better than the ones now available! I imagine the tooling still exists somewhere, no?
The guy at Truck Shop is flat wrong. Lots of people notice the details.

Okay, going to edit the reproduction thing in the hubcap post. Not only are the ones I compared smaller top to bottom on the wings of the bowtie, I measured them with a dial caliper and the poor repop is much taller in the center. Heres all three. Original on left, the "Good" reproductions in the center and the currently available far right.

For the bowtie wings I will call them
Original measures .593
GOOD reproduction .500
Poor reproduction .463

Center of bowtie or center square
Original measures .890 tall
GOOD reproduction .820 tall
Poor reproduction .992 tall

You can see now why the poor reproductions look so disproportioned. Also notice the ridge around the center is more rounded compared to the poor reproduction thats more pointed. Fine for many street trucks but this is a restoration thread. Hate to sound so over critical but that bowtie sucks !

Great pics & references for this thread! I honestly have no clue if my chrome '66 hubcaps are original or repros, so I'll have to check them out more closely.

I didn't see that but I guess if the hardware wasnt there, that's the most important part.

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

I can add a bit of information for this thread in regards to the Hubcaps. In 1960, the correct hubcap for the GMC trucks was the 1957-1959 GMC caps.This was because when the 1960 model year was rolled out, GMC either forgot to design a new cap or it was not ready for production. The caps changed in 1961. I put the 1959 caps on my '60 as the early sales ads show them this way.

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

Thank you Jake . That's partially correct. The hubcap you posted is the same in design , yes. For 1960 AND 1961 GMCs , GMC grouped both years together as the "N" series . Both 1960 and 1961 received the same version hubcap with a paint change of a blue a center and blue outer ring accent. This is spelled out in the GMC parts books , dealer literature and data books. GMC did many things different than Chevrolet even though they are subtle differences , they make it a little tough sometimes.

You can see both Painted and Chromed in this picture. I though about changing the color to blue, but the red matches the emblem as well, so it was a coin toss.

Yeah I here ya there. Painting these GMC caps would be a chore. Oem4me is quite talented in that field. He should do a hubcap "restoration" thread !!

Wrong thread for this subject. You'll probably get more views in the general 60-66 section or Engines and Drivetrain section.

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

Hood Hinge and Spring Finish

Hood Hinge
From research here looks like some hood hinges were silver cad, which mine looked like, weathered silver with some light rust/dirt. Also, some of the photos posted for Lambert, looked like they may have been blackish ones too??.

Hood Hinge Springs

Again research looks like they were kind of flat blackish, phosphate?? mine looked like this.


Couple of photos of mine cleaned.

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

Les , From my own group of trucks and personally , every truck Ive seen, 1960-1963 is Silver Cad with silver cad bolts and 1964-1966 is gray/Black phosphate with silver cad bolts .

1963 Silver Cad hinge gray phosphate spring


1964 Lambrecht truck . You can see the contrast in this picture of the 1964 between the cad plated bolts and gray phosphate hinge.

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

We've covered the paint/build order for the cab and the bed. How about the front sheet metal?

How was it all painted? Separately, then bolted together?
I've never seen a good, unmolested truck: are the inner fender and core support bolts all painted, as though they were bolted together prior to painting?

Grill surround? I've never paid attention to see if the flanges of the grill surround and the outer fenders are painted body color, or primer and bolted together before exterior paint.

Learned something out the Hydra-matic today. My dipstickcap has always been loose so I decided to solder it and make it right. I glass bead blasted it and found this under the paint - cool. One more factory correct item.
