Paint ideas for my 1960
1 Attachment(s)
Trying to decide what color to paint my 1960 GMC 1000, been looking at hundreds of pictures and Ideas. Want to keep it as original as possible, but I continue to come back to one picture found here on 6066gmcclub.com. I am hoping that whoever owns this truck can share more pictures and provide paint information. Out of all the pictures I've seen, this one particular combination I find it to be the cleanest and in my opinion the perfect combination. if anyone has any info i would greatly appreciate the feedback.

Eli, I restored my GMC back to close to factory as I could as well. The center console was made by Cupholders Plus. They send you samples of color to choose from once you pick them off their web site. this is so you can match the interior, I dont think I cold have picked it any closer. The box has 2 pre-cut holes for 5.25" speakers.

The main interior color is called Silver Gray there are 3 companies that produced the color:

DuPont 94162
Diamont WA7134

Dash Top - Charcoal Gray (anti glare flat) I did mine in Semi-gloss
DUCO 73605
DuPont DS174

:signthankspin:Thank you for your response, your information is of great help. I love how clean and how the details were not overlooked, Show room ready. Really a great job. Had a question, regarding the seat. On the picture shown on the GMC ID page, the seat is white or off white depending on the monitor Im looking at. But I noticed on the additional pictures you send the seat is black, whick looks great as well, so I was wondering if that was a seat cover for the end result. Great job really and thank you for the additional pictures, I hope you dont mind if I reach out to your for any additional advice, you did an incredible job on your truck. Stay well.

I bought the simple aftermarket seat cover. At the time I was restoring it, I did not have the funds to put it back OEM from SMS Fabrics, it matches perfect and quite frankly no one except us GMC Nuts know the difference.. :)
