Do you think this could have been a dealer add on, kinda like the rear bumpers. Reason I ask is I had a older local gentleman tell me he "Thought" that dealerships would paint the red/black strip between the trim to break up the white.

I know its hard to what if things because you could literally what if everything

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

I am painting the dash on my 62 Custom C10 and would like to paint the glove box door inset the correct dark gray color. Does anyone know of a rattle can color/brand that comes close? Should this be satin or gloss or ?? Thanks for your help.

And thanks to 60-66 for the reference picture!

Bob

I suppose anything is possible , Chevrolet never did this but I suppose the new owner could request it. Ive collected a LOT of dealer pictures with these trucks in the showroom or on the lot. Not one picture is like that , But , its impossible to say if one or two possibly may have done this without some documentation.

1963 frame off restored back original down to the correct bolts, screws, paint and engine, video is on youtube. This should help if you want to see original. (The oak in the bed instead of pine and an passenger sun visor are the only things not original)

Beautiful truck!

Did you leave that one item non factory for personal taste or to test the purists?

Re: The 1960 - 1966 Chevrolet & GMC Pickups Factory Correct Restoration Thread

I'm wondering if anybody would have a picture with the dimensions of the cab from factory. I'm concerned my cab may have moved a little bit when I was taking the floor apart. thanks

How many are aware of a date code stamped in the bed wood. Mine is a 66 SWB and has a date code stamp. Just throwing it out there.

That date code has been noted on a few trucks here, but most beds don't survive well enough for the stamp remain visible. Also, I've noticed most that are reported are from '66. Not sure on the significance of that fact. Can I ask where your truck was assembled?
