GMCNut,

I picked up the Suburban, and it's definitely fawn inside. Sure doesn't look like a repaint, and I'm not sure why someone would repaint it fawn.

Did you find that paint code?

If its factory Fawn inside I'd check your VIN and lets see if its truly a 61 or if its actually a 62 titled as a 61. Often trucks were titled as the year the were sold in vs the actual model year - could well be you have a 62 Suburban sold in late 1961 and thus titled as such. Post the VIN and we'll tell you

The VIN begins with 1001CN, which would make it a California 60-61 I believe?

10 = 1/2 ton - 1000 series
01 = 115" Wheelbase
C = Oakland, California
N = 1960/1961

Should end with an "A" for 6000 GVW class.

So we agree that it's a real '61 and not a '62 sold early right?

I'll get a picture of the interior color.

YEP - "N" is indeed the right series for 60 and 61. All I can speculate before seeing pics is if your interior is Fawn, it was one of the very last trucks off the line with a new 1962 hot on its heels and they were already switching to Fawn, or someone has repainted it at some time or other. I have personally never seen an 60-61 Chevy nor GMC with original Fawn inside, so your truck would be a very strange variant to say the least....

I agree, GMCNut -- I'm a big believer in Occam's Razor.
