Re: Period Correct Accessaries for your truck...

My newest accessory... Made in the 60's

Justrite Light-Stick Flashlight
My thought in all this is...
What items would be found in this truck back in the 70's if it was out on the farm when the crops were being planed.
Or if it was taken out on a picnic.
What might you find in a 70's truck.
Most of my items are 60's to 70's but I am using my old Brick Cell Phone.

I had a couple of Justrite head lamps very much like that for search and rescue. Battery box was the same but the lamp/reflector assembly was detached on a long [36''] cord and the lamp head was attached to an elastic headband. Some guys attached old coiled Mic cords in place of the 2-line zipwire, so it would slip more easily off obtruding tree branches on the trail.
Extremely reliable gear. USA made.
Then Petzls came out.

I like the way it says; four standard batteries, instead of 'D' batteries, that box is crisp for being cardboard that old, nice!

Because the On/Off switch was exposed and could easily get turned on inside a glovebox, so it spent its charge inside, in the dark, and no one saw it being on.

On the headlamps/miners lamps I used in search and rescue, I learned to keep the top lid unlatched when inside my pack, so it couldn't get turned on accidentally. Good units if you took care of them. USA-made.

My folks got me THAT same craftsman box for Christmas around '67-'68 with a few tools in it. Not long after I backed over it with my '58 BelAir. Set it in the driveway and forgot.. I beat it back into shape (kinda) & used it for a long time after.

Got this from a friend. Actual sticker from the era, rubber band fell apart when he took them out. I think this is where I will put it.

Re: Period Correct Accessaries for your truck...

Was digging thru the garage today looking for that ever elusive. "where'd I put that" item and ran across these in the bottom of a storage cabinet. Forgot I had them but remember buying them in the mid-70s I think it was. Made by the RubberMaid Co. Slip into the window channel area over the window sill. Big enough to hold a Dr. Pepper can (or other beverage) and the 32 or 44 oz. foam cups as shown.

Yep. I remember them. A spot for your drink and fries while you ate your burger.

I have two of those in my truck; the little side compartment tends to catch all manner of stuff that I have to sort through every now and again.

That would have me thinking twice. Great piece! I have gathered some vintage travel stickers, even girlie stickers, from earlier and up through this era here. I can't bring myself to use any. I also have some era-correct (came off these trucks) chrome dealer badges. I had two from Hicks Bros. in KC and that's my last name. I gave one to my brother and put the other on my '72 tailgate. I ended up deciding I didn't want it on there and took it off.

It's funny. I really dig anything era-correct for these trucks. I loved the era, period! I collect stuff of all sorts. I do my trucks to be "of the era". But I never liked accessories on vehicles much. It has always been about being "clean" with vehicles for me. I'm real careful about "adding on".

I do Ventshades on all my trucks. I just might forego those on my '67, if I do no trim. I have a set of chrome headlight lids I doubt I'll use on either. I'm on the fence about bumper guards on either truck. What the K2500 needs is a winch bumper/winch. That one gets a Unity lamp on driver side. I want a fire extinguisher and that's it for that truck. And the '67 will be mild custom street truck. I'm doing era-correct custom touches on that.

Re: Period Correct Accessaries for your truck...

Yea, I haven't put it on the truck just yet. It is really cool to have it and my 2019 Silverado is from the modern Tom Henry Chevrolet as well as my 2012 Camaro so I have a connection to the dealership.

Re: Period Correct Accessaries for your truck...

Nice license plate frames! I like the thin ones like that. I always used the smooth ones. I think I have a set still.

How about the "Keep On Truckin'", "I'd Rather Be Sailing", etc frames? I still have those. I think I have "Keep On Camping" one from my camper truck

These crop up on eBay and often for decent prices.

I'd love a Keep on Truckin' or similar plate. We could do a whole separate thread on vanity plate frames alone. Am still hoping for the correct dealer plate frames for my Blazer - Harloff Chevrolet, Encinitas, CA.

Re: Period Correct Accessaries for your truck...

California dealer frames I always thought were so cool... when they were current. Back East the were putting their badges on brand new paint. I hated that. Some were even drilled and screwed. You've seen them screwed into cowl covers and fenders. CA had the right idea. Then they went to black plastic crap and by then our dealers were doing those... and putting a stupid sticker on anyway!!

I have a Keep On Truckin' frame but no Mr Boogie on it

I cherished these KC Daylighter round covers for years. They stopped making this smiley face style way back when. I ended up with one missing. Probably was stolen, they don't just fall off. I wish I could find another

Re: Period Correct Accessaries for your truck...

Excellent. Through dumb luck I bumbled onto a NOS metal dealer emblem correct for my K20 but I can’t bring myself to drill holes to attach it. Was affixed on the tailgate near the handle. Amazing the original survived. It’s covered with cement.
