The Protect-o-Plate would come with the owner protection plan booklet when buying a new GMC truck. When I dig mine up I will post a pic.

Very interested in seeing your Protect-o-plate Pete - I have owned a dozen Chevy trucks with Protect-o-plates over the years, but never had a GMC with one. My 64 GMC had all its original ppwk, but I do not remember ever seeing a protect-o-plate with it if it was present. The glue would come undone and the plate will fall out of the book, or the section of the back cover its glued to will get bent back and forth enough over 40 years to break it off....most are lost forever. Since the stamping machine that created protect-o-plates was used by all GM divisions as a standard appliance, seems to me all plates on any car or truck should have the customers name and address on it....this is definitely the first one I ever heard of not having that information on it. Another mystery to ponder

I've collected a few pieces to restore it but I didn't realize there was an overflow tank and those hose supports on the core support. Thanks for posting the pics!

Bob, I will have some AC stuff for sale soon and I think I may have an extra overflow tank and the "L" bracket off the fan shroud that supports the A/C return hose. Problem with the overflow tanks is they are always rotted and cannot really function as intended without being repaired first. I am not selling any AC stuff until I get this system charged and all components working but stand by and I will let you know when I am ready to sell off what I am not using

GMCNUT, Back in the 70's I came across my father's 62's Owners Protection Plan booklet which may have had the Protect-O-Plate also, when I finally got some interest to check it out it was gone. I should have grabbed it right away, I still have the 62 Owner's Manual.

Heres a 1966 GMC Suburban Protecto Plate booklet Steve. Looks like the owners name and info are just hand written in the book in this case and not like Chevy where they used the Dymo Tape on the plate itself.

Very cool Jon - so this makes three GMC protecto-plates we've now seen that didn't have the owners name and address stamped into the plate - very interesting. I have never seen a Chevrolet protecto-plate without the owners name and address stamped into the plate itself - seems this is a difference between GMC and Chevy dealers.
