Default Die Cast/Scale Model?

I have a 1965 shortbed stepside. Does anyone know if any toy manufacturer ever made a model of the GMC? Lots of Chevy C10 choices, but I have never seen one with the right grille.

I’ve only seen this Spec Cast model of a 1960 with the early hood.

Jolly had several of those for sale ten years ago at the 10th Anniversary Jamboree of our site. He had applied club logo decals on them.

Spec-Cast made a few different versions. There was a green and while 'GMC Truck' version, I have one somewhere. In addition to the Sentry Hardware none, I think there were at least 2 others. Nice 1/25th. die cast, not terribly well detailed but not terribly expensive either.

Pete --

I've got the red and white one that Jolly added 401 decals to on the hood. I've also got a green and white one with Hemmings Motor News logo on it that's still in the box.
