is this truck still for sale?

Late to the party...Yup, must be a 230 under the hood, unless the V6 emblems disappeared back when the repaint occurred...but that would require the little holes to be filled in as well.

Hubcabs look like circa 1970 to me...

Where are these deals when I'M looking? So, did you end up buying this truck? This is EXACTLY the truck I've been looking for!! I ended up buying a "project" '63 V6 stepside, which will be nice when it's done, but I really, really want a fleetside. Oh, and to agree with a previous poster .. I officially hate you, too .. or am just incredibly jealous .. :smilewide:


+1 if he did pull the trigger on this sweet ride.

Thought a flat windscreen to be 64 and up. Small window CustomCab ?

64?


I saw a truck that looked very close to that one...

Very interesting how different the '60-'66 GMC and Chevy VIN encoding is.

Did you get the Serial Id Number? Use this page to decode for the best guess at the year: http://www.lmctruck....ll.aspx?Page=10

Can't add anything that hasn't already been said. It's definitely a '64 or '65, unless someone changed the grille emblems on a '66.

Here are the grille letters of a '66:

Oh, and btw, now I officially hate you! :smilewide:

Problem with GMC in this era is- they did not observe annual model year changes and there are no yearly VIN ranges to pin it down, either. This is the reason image searches are going to bring up conflicting data; no body knows.

As Moltie stated, it's definitely a '64 or later due to the non-wrap windshield. The "GMC" grille lettering was altered slightly to more squared lettering for '66... which this truck does not have. That's all the yearly ID criteria I have handy, so this is either a '64 or '65.
Calendar year production:
'64 : 110,521
'65 : 136,705

Unless removed during resto, she doesn't show the V6 badge on the hoodsides. I know what you're thinking; 'that must mean it has a V8', but GMC didn't offer an 8-lunger from '60 thru '66... so no V-6 badge would mean I-6. Swing over to the Package Van and the menu starts out with an I-4. In '67 the hoary ol' 283 V-8 makes a brief showing, along with a 3-cyl diesel. GMC sure had some interesting engineering in the '60s, under it's own general manager & discretionary budget, eh?

I would say '64-66 because of the cab...'60-63 still had a wrap-around windshield. Though a Google image search turns up '63s with both the wraparound and regular windshield... confusion..

Neat looking truck.

Doesn't the dealer have the title and registration?
