Default Re: 1970 GMC C2500 Ol' Green

Thanks, Dave, you got that truck for a good price! I'm glad your wife and son put in a bit of pressure to buy it. Is the spid label on the inside of the glove-box door still intact? That tells the story of the truck when it was new. Please keep us informed about what is going on with it!

I forgot to quote Funky61, but I don't think that's the 8-1/2 foot box. There would be a visible vertical seam where the extra 6" was added at the cab end of the box. It is possible that someone may have filled that seam later but GM didn't. The only GMC one I have ever seen in person had a "Sierra Grande" badge in the same place as Chevy's "Longhorn" badge but I know there were 8' box Sierra Grande GMC's made too.

Here's a pic of my '72 C2500 and the spid label. We bought this truck in 1979 and still driving it!.
