It was a concept vehicle exhibited at shows. However, it probably served as inspiration for the Corvair van and some of the other small vans introduced by GM, Ford and Chrysler in the early 60s.

I have to agree Ray. I am currently restoring a 62 corvair ramp side truck and the body shape of the front is really quite similar.

I found a few of them under Google Images.
In addition to the Corvair similarities, it also sports a little Nomad influence in the rear.
As pretty a "mini-van" as you could ever imagine.

Hey everyone, i ran across a few more pics of Don Garlits GMC Suburban. The newer one is obviously not the same one as the vintage picture. It is cool that he put a 60-61 hood on it when the new one was built though!

Later---DAC

Are these Jimmy's or Chevys??

I can't trust my eyes anymore. Either way, it brings back memories of the "good ol' days" in my younger years.

I took a combine like these, but on a F*** truck up thru Ks. and Neb. in '59 and '60.

Sure was a top-heavy rascal to drive. Didn't have to worry about getting a speeding ticket.
Made you think you were in a hi-wing airplane with the combine header hanging over the cab.

They all look like Jimmy's to me.

Sure made this kid's knees weak loading and unloading.

That was tricky, too. A combination of raising and lower the bed, as well as the ditch you backed in had to be so-so. We used a 4 X 4 on hooks in the stake pockets so we'd have more than half of the drive wheels on the bed.

My boss sent me and another young kid with it, to haul grain to elevator when we were cutting. I sure didn't want to bring his new truck home as a modified convertible. He stayed home.

When we got home, the boss split the profits with me, and I paid cash for a '55 Chev. conv. The car cost less the $900. Wish I'd kept it. Hindsight is 20-20.

Mods: If I'm off-subject too far, please delete.
