Default '65 3/4 305V6 fleetside rebuild

Here's my rebuild on '64 305V6 fleetside. It was purchased new by my grandfather, sold to me in the 80's then sold back to my grandfather who sold it to his son, my uncle, for use on his farm.
It fell into my hands again and i'm ready to bring it roaring back into glory!

Looks like a good solid truck.

Keep us posted on it.

Step 2:
The truck has been removed from the lot it was at, and is awaiting an auto transporter to contract with me for delivery.

Very nice. Custom cab, all original, complete, power brakes, big window, all chrome trim and emblems present. Sweet. No damage, no rust? WOW! Good for you, especially with huge family history. One family owned!
I have had several trucks with that California mildew, moss stuff. Power washes right off.

Ken, there are 2 dents in hood where a tree limb fell on it, minor by the view of it. I know of no rust, time will tell when I get underneath...

I am trying to find a manual for it. My recall of history for this truck is it was a 1964, I cant find a '64 manual that instills confidence without knowing the model number. VIN only tells me it's a 3/4ton made in Pontiac Michigan with 127" wheelbase between 64-66.

Best so far has been a CD-ROM from Faxon that is complete manual and updates for $28. Worth taking a flyer on it at that cost.

Well now, hold on there ronn. You need to read the Jolly page/GMC ID (recently updated). You will see that 64 VIN plate is in a different place than 65-66. Also your title will confirm the year. If no title, should be easy to get a duplicate since it's "all in the family."
If the original windshield is in place, broken of not, it is dated. The wheels, if original, can have a date. Memories of when someone did something with it in a certain year. Papers of any kind, oil change, build sheet in seat springs, etc.. You will also see in the GMC ID that there is a difference in grill letters (G M C) for 1966. All this can narrow it down or nail it.
A lot of effort was put into the VIN page and the GMC ID page. as well as all the other GMCCLUB pages. The club is the go-to place for 6066 GMC info.

Probable deductive rational interpolation:

1. If the VIN plate is on the B pillar it's 64
2. If VIN plate overhead and grill is non 66, it's 65
3. Overhead and red GMC it's a 66
4. If cab, grill or VIN have been changed, all bets off.

Thanks! The title is on its way by mail, havn't seen the truck in 20yrs so i don't remember where the plate is. There has been no changes in cab or body work done, the seats are original (although soon to be rebuilt

). The windshield has been replaced numerous times. The wheels were originally split rims that I replaced in 1985, don't know if that is any indicator...

I have been to the vin page and it only indicates 64-66 as a range. A mystery that I'm looking forward to finding out answers to soon!.

I am having one difficulty, finding an auto hauler to bring it to me...

Where is the truck and where is it going? If you post the from-to, someone may help.

My truck is stranded in Silwell, OK, and needing to get it to Bishop, CA. Be nice if it could happen before too much weather impedes.
It has no gas tank and no brakes so needs a winch to pull up onto hauler.

Anyone traveling that route or wants to, give a shout and lets talk!

The good news is that I-40 is the most traveled truck route. East/west has many more haulers than north/south. There will be plenty of quotes available. Bad news is it's going to be $1000 and up. With $1000 being a steal. More likely $2000 w/non op, no brakes fees.
