Wow, cutting the frame rails in half. To me, that is really taking it to the next level. I have heard of people doing this, but never seen one. Thanks for explaining how it was done. Now here is a Two-Tone 1960 GMC that is in black and white. Question. After years of looking at these old pictures, and knowing the limited factory color choices for any given year, can anyone discern the true color of the trucks in the black and white pictures? With todays computers, it would be easy to add the color, if I knew which color to add. I have even thought of getting pictures of a truck in each color offered that year, and turning it black and white. Perhaps the colors have something to say, even in black and white pictures. Any ideas? GM

Certain shades do show up differently in B/W but the quality of the picture has to be good to really tell between colors like yellow and orange. This truck appears to be the same as the Red and White one in the GM photostore

I wish I could get a clear view of the front tag on that factory picture. It looks like the old script "GMC" with some other text. I wonder if GMC would sell me a Tiff image of that picture. I have that picture, but I pulled it from a copy online. It is not clear enough. The black and white picture I posted is taken from the 1960 GMC Paint Regulations. It is hard to tell from the angle, but the black and white truck picture looks like a short bed to me. GM.

You meet the nicest people riding in a 1960 GMC. These pictures are from a 1980's movie. There is a long list of GMC trucks in movies online. GM

This is your GMC...This is your GMC on LSD. Taken from a two page magazine ad from 1960.

SuWeet GMCCollector,
Love them Two-Tones. Did the Mesa Tan 1/2 ton truck get different spear up front right, or is the original just flattened out? Also, is the inside of the bed all White and are the fender wells also White, or Black? If you have one, please consider adding a shot of the bed floor area. I had to wing it on paint placement inside the bed, when I painted my truck. You have a nice pair of awesome looking GMC trucks. There cousins look nice too. I got a soft spot for the 60-61 GMC trucks. Thanks for posting them, GM
