I've done that in the back of military trucks, many times. They put a heavy canvas/nylon strap across the back and call it "safe" ... hah!

I was born and raised riding in pickup boxes, still drive 2 GMC's with just lap belts and one GMC with no seat belts at all! I must have a death wish---LOL!

Hey DAC, Welcome to the Two-Tone Pages. I love that rednwhite GMC picture. Dibs on the driver side wheel well,haha. Here are a few more two-tones I ran across. I have some Red n White 1960 GMC ad pictures,but I do not know if I should post them. I pulled them off the web,but I think GMC still sells copies of the two pictures. Any ideas? Thanks, GM

This is the truck I bought 20 years ago from a neighbor for $1,000. It had about 38,000 miles on it, no rust, 351 V6, Turbo 400 trans, Powr-Lok rear end. I had it repainted, frame shortened, and put a short bed on it. Clyde in SC owns it now.

Thanks Greg, you started a great thread here, I dig the pics and paperwork!
The '60 in the flood damaged black and white Polaroid pic in my avatar was a yellow and white two-tone.

Here is a two-Tone 1960 GMC on a pack of dealership matches. I bet there are others out there. GM

Here are all the paint regulations that I have. They show the 1960,1962 and 1966 Two-Tone GMC paint schemes. If anyone has other years, or the second page for 1966,please post them here. Thanks, GM

Here is a brochure that features Two-Tone trucks. The picture is of what I believe to be Pre-Production trucks taken in early fall of 1959. Look at the inner bed paint. I believe this differs from standard paint regs. Any thoughts?,GM

Don't Shoot, These are for reference purposes only. The 1960 Chevy shares the flip-flopped Two-Tone with the Canada GMC trucks. The others are Dodge Ford and International Harvester, all 1960 factory Two-Tone models. The Two-Tone blue and white was an industry wide phenomenon in the late 50's-early60's era. They all look cool to the touch. GM
