Aphaynes,

GMC manufacturing was labeled in series instead of years, unlike most other manufacturers. With the target demographic a hard-working American that had little use for the annual flash and tech, it was marketed as major upgrades to capability were released. The series did not change from 1964 - 1966, leaving the labeling process unchanged. Aside from the Oakland plant the years in question would be labeled identically. This results in the series being called the 4-5-6 series by fans of the bodystyle.

Congratulations on your new truck. I have subscribed to your thread to see your progress

Found this interesting table in the LMC catalog today. If it is correct then I guess I have an early 1965 instead of 1964 based on the model and vehicle portion of my VIN, "F26882".

Can anyone support LMC's statement?

In the meantime just doing a lot of reading and studying. As a rookie in the world of auto body work, I know I have a lot to learn for any aspect of this project I take on myself. I just found this resource. Seems to be pretty informative in terms of metal work and paint, but then...what do i know

Maybe some folks here have used it or seen it and can vouch for it. Maybe another rookie like me will find it useful.

Hi AP that looks like a good resource for body work it has allot information and will be very helpful. I like that he said his way was not the only approach to body work, as with any information some are more comprehensive in different areas. I think it is good honest info overall and a good choice....Vernski

May have hosed up the brakes though. Stopped for gas, put on the emergency brake and never took it back off (30 miles or so).

Tootling..is that a word...around the junkyard Friday, I was wondering if anyone had attempted to use a 1990 Chevy Van G20 Fuel tank in the rear of theses GMC's?

Problem: Not sure of the dimensions of the GMC frame. Have seen a drawing for the Chevy and could assume they should be the same but I hate to assume.

Van tank dimensions are 31 x 22 x 12.38 in. according to an ad for one...forgot to carry a tape measure with me.

...but then that is not what I went there to look for.
