Very nice! Like the wood accent on the rails. Did you have trouble finding the chrome trim? Seems expensive for what it is from a new reproduction standpoint; unless you can find it used and still in decent shape. Do you have a build thread on here showing how you got from start to finish?

Nice truck Vernski. We'd like to see more pictures when ur up to it. About that upside down stuff. I have the same kinds of problems when I'm trying to attach pictures to messages. Yourz worked out fine. I just turned my monitor thing upside down and set it back on the desk and that before picture was good as can be..

Mar-k makes the side moulding but not the upper cab trim and I just polished
them they had some scratches and came out good, the side moulding was to
far gone & mangled. Sorry no on the build thread but I did take some pics so
ask if I have pics of something.

I do have more pics and will post them as time allow, I posted some pics in the paint and bodywork section on the forum. I did get the picture turned right side up but now that I look at it, it's backward I need to pay attention...Vernski

So with F in the VIN is there any set way to determine a 64, 65, 66? It does not have the HF or ZF mentioned on the club page VIN description.

yeah, the club page says 64-66, the one at the top says 65-66, so that's why I asked.

Aphaynes,

GMC manufacturing was labeled in series instead of years, unlike most other manufacturers. With the target demographic a hard-working American that had little use for the annual flash and tech, it was marketed as major upgrades to capability were released. The series did not change from 1964 - 1966, leaving the labeling process unchanged. Aside from the Oakland plant the years in question would be labeled identically. This results in the series being called the 4-5-6 series by fans of the bodystyle.

Congratulations on your new truck. I have subscribed to your thread to see your progress
