Even black and white pictures of two-tone trucks are welcomed.

Does this count as two-tone?

This is approximately what my truck would have looked like, originally, minus wheels & some details. Light blue w/ white accents.

Kind of a minimalist approach to Two-Tone, I'll take it. Was this a factory Custom truck? US or Canada? I have seen some Two-Tone Canada GMC truck. They put the main body color up top and put the White from the body crease down. Bizzaro Land! GM

I've heard that some trucks had the white on top from the factory (It's hard to find original photos of these trucks!) but perhaps not in that exact design.

This one looks more like a factory paint job & color, but I'm not certain.


I don't know if I like it as much as the earlier, full-top 2-tone, but it does add a nice bit of contrast.

If I decide to repaint mine, I may go with a 2-tone all the way to the roof, starting around where that first image I posted has it. It's an idea I'm tossing around. Plenty of time to decide -- I still have about a thousand hours of body work to do before I'm ready to mask & paint!

Here's another, very similar, light blue GMC. Though this particular pic has been edited poorly and looks blown out. And the steel wheels are painted the same color as the body. Original? Got me....but it looks sharp, minus the screwed up the color tone in the photo.



Just one more of the light blue two-tone. Don't want to overdo it in this thread If nothing else, these will give me a few ideas for when I paint mine...I'd like to go with something you just don't find these days. Hence the '66 GMC in the first place!

Here is one I got off the net somewhere, that I really like. A dangerous act that a lot of us somehow survived!
