Rolling restoration thread---1962 Stepside

I'm not doing a frame-off like some of you guys here, but I need to keep a record of my progress.
Hopefully, as I ask questions and get answers, we'll see the results posted here. That way we can see the cooperation and generous spirit that makes this board a great place!

Just tinkering around. Looks like a little problem under the mirror mount.
Just some surface rust.

Re: Rolling restoration thread---1962 Stepside

Let's look under the hood.
Noticed my fuel pump is blowing a little gas out of the weep hole.
I'll check that out tomorrow.
Video is a little dark, I'll make y'all a better one soon.
What's that in the bed?
New Rocker panels! Just need to find a buddy with a welder.

Re: Rolling restoration thread---1962 Stepside

Nice looking truck retodd. I am not as familiar with these years and can't tell from the angle, is it a short or long step?

Re: Rolling restoration thread---1962 Stepside

It's an 8 foot bed, so It's L_O_N_G!
I never cared for the 67-72 long steppers, but this one's growing on me.
Plus you can get a 4X8 sheet of plywood in there, or an 8' long piece of molding.
( Currently using 4x8 sheet for a bed floor.)
Having trouble finding someone to work on the split rims, I'll try the co-op Monday.
I have a brand new set of 67-72 shocks, I'm hoping they will fit under her.
Took a quick trip to the hardware store, Runnin' good!
If you look close in the first pic, you can see my guard dog earning her keep.

Re: Rolling restoration thread---1962 Stepside

Not much progress this weekend, but I did accomplish a couple things.
Got 2 new tires for the front, worked out some electrical gremlins
so all the lights work
Filled the gas tank and found a little hole,
gives me something else to look forward to.
And then I went cruisin'
Saw a friend of mine and shot a couple pics.
And shot the bull.

I wonder what it would look like if you took the fog lights off the red truck and put them in the bumper of the 62?

I like it too.

Regarding the trim; it's because the truck has the Custom option pack fitted. Another give-away is the hood emblems, they were plain ally on the basic truck and chromed on the Custom.

Other extras are the cigar lighter and front bumper over-riders; I got lucky with my 63 'cos it came with the full kit, big back window, four-way flashers, clock as well as all the stuff above.

Had it explained to me that a GMC is a "gentleman's" truck!

Every registration from "63 forward.
Receipts for 4 oil changes.
Cool stuff.

That's cool stuff for sure. Do you mind me asking what you paid for her? I voted this truck for ToTM, love the originality.

Re: Rolling restoration thread---1962 Stepside

Thanks for the vote!
The truck was bought locally for 2 grand.
A couple e-bay sales didn't come through so the guy was just ready to deal.
Plus his wife was pitchin' a fit.
