1966? Cabover Prototype

https://gmphotostore.com/gmc-coe-concept-poster/

Guess GMC was thinking about updating the Steel Tilt Cab in '66 or so. Glad they didn't!

That's neat looking though, at least to me. Looks like it would've shared a grille with the big Cs

Re: 1966? Cabover Prototype

Wow, that sure is different. May be like-able once getting used to it. May have been a better choice than the tilts they did have ??

Right, same Grilles.

Proportions are a little off but I'd drive it.

Looks like the Dodge L Series of the same era. I personally never warmed up to the look.

I always kinda liked those. It took me second to realize those are models.

Re: 1966? Cabover Prototype

I think over the years more plastic kits of the Dodge L-700 were made than actual Dodge L-700's!

I think your right! Now if a model of the regular GMC tilt cab ( '60-'80 ) was ever made, it would be an entirely different story.

Dumpster truck, with cab more forward and low than that Dodge or the T-series. There was a similar configuration available on the Crackerbox. I think of those Mack MRs
