What about Purple?

Has any member seen Purple 1969 Pickups ? This truck has been painted once , but still has the original paint inside the cab and firewall etc in excellent condition. I believe they were strictly Canadian trucks only in 1969. The glove box label says only "Special Paint".

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

I haven't seen any "dark bronze irridescent" for 1970 GMCs, my truck's original color. A dark chocolate brown with fine metalflake, white skirts and roof w/ lower trim package. It was chevy orange when I got it and have since painted it "hugger" (from 1971 code chart, aka red orange from 1970 chart). Funny, the options list reads dark bronze irrid. while the chart says dark bronze poly, any difference?

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

My daughter wants her s-10 painted pink, maybe I'll go for ice coral pink, or better yet I'll dump a little red in the gallon of white I have sitting aroung and do a custom shade!

Heavy D,
I bought a Lime Green Ploy 71 customC10 just like that one out of Regina not long ago. I just picked up all the parts to fix the usual rust on it. I hope to be driving mine this summer sometime as well.
Good luck with yours.

First off, I love your truck. Secondly, who came up with the name for the color of your truck? Grapefruit are pink!!! Just curious. lol

They had it in 1970 as well. its a two owner, the guy bought it in the late 70s, and its the original paint. i remember my old boss at a body shop i used to work at told me about them coming from the factory purple, i didnt believe him till it showed up in auto class.

What about the "butter nut yellow" paint? That is the OG color on mine but now it's primer black. I like mine with no shine....for now

Cool Re: Rarest Paint Color?

personally i think u could order your new 67-72 in any gm color but u had 2 ask the dealer for the specific color cause if someone wanted a C/10 but really liked the color of an olds or pontiac the dealer could have special ordered you a C/10 painted an olds or any gm color ive heard of it being done before but it was on a car

Is this the bronze you were talking about? Places you can still find new paint it is a lil brighter and has some metal flake

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

anyone have a picture of the medium blue poly, it was my suburbans original color, but had been painted green. I was going to keep it green but am interested in seeing the original color.

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

Wow! Lots of neat stuff here.
I have seen many of these trucks and alot of the colors but never can say that I have seen the lime green, the pink or the purple's in factory paint jobs.
Here is my only current truck with Specuial paint listed on the SPID.
I was going to say the rarest is Med. Olive w/ White top, but I think that everyone gets that joke! LOL
My favorite color is the Dark olive and Med. olive combo on 72 Cheyenne Supers witht he wood grain but my wife says the only one I own with a nice color is this one.
I tell you something I rarely see is all white trucks around Missouri, but maybe that is b/c they were mostly commercial and abused.
Nice stuff everyone!

I have a 68 that was originally maroon , as for the yellow if you came out to Delaware all the old state DOT Chevy pickups were that color. I have seen quite a few in the jyards when i was a teenager they had 22 of them lined up in a row all step sides accept for 3 blazers and a suburban.

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

Hey 68SWB4x4, what is the number on the top of your spid there? It looks like "F71215" but usually it is an all numeric number. Could you take a look-see and see what it _really_ is? It may just be the picture not real clear there. I'm just really curious there....

Re: Rarest Paint Color?

I've never seen another WHITE GMC 69 Stepside, but I'm sure it's just a North Coast thing. White tends to show the winter sludge too much, eh? But, for all I know; it's the most common color?

It definitely says F71215 I didn't know that was odd. I just looked at my truck's SPID and that's what it reads. to double check i checked the orignal build sheet to make sure and it also reads F71215.
