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

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

Here are the grille letters of a '66:
Oh, and btw, now I officially hate you!

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?

Neat looking truck.
Doesn't the dealer have the title and registration?
