Some negative comments below the article, but I think the creator did an awesome job myself.

I do too Ed. Looks rather handsome, however the writers always seem to get things wrong. It is obvious that the grill is 67-68, more like 68 because it has the side lights/reflectors, not 69.

. Differences between the 67 and 68 were quite noticeable. Other than the side markers he 67 had "GMC" stamped right into the center of the grille while the 68 had Letter Emblems on the front center of the hood along with trim mouldings that surrounded the bottom of the hood and front fenders. Interior trims were also different, each year had their own style that differed from the 69-72 trucks as well.

To me, the word " fugly" comes to mind. GM got it right then, really hard to improve on that IMO.

I'm not gonna argue with you there. I just don't get why people think that fugly is cool, do you? It seems to be the norm any more.
