My favourite owner mod is definitely the Belanger headers and side exhaust.
Belanger must have made headers for the V6 way back when. I wonder if they would still make some.

yes, interesting history as one of the oldest dealers around. Great pictures and story under that section.Hard to believe the 1966 metal plate surround was in the truck when it arrived. Bill of sale, records etc...A friend of mine had flashbacks as he started at GM in 1970 and is still working. He couldn't believe these one owner trucks were still out there.
I don't know if it qualifies as "one owner", but I've got the '65 one ton Suburban that my Dad bought new. My son wants it when I'm gone.

Can't see it would be any different than Iowa's "Century Farms" - owned by the same family for over a 100 years. These are getting as "scarce" as our GMC V6's. Your truck is a winner.

Why not, they will have specs somewhere, sounds pretty incredible…what kind of V8 you got in there? Pretty common question.

That is some special history that can’t be bought. I am pretty sure your dad didn’t picture a third generation driving that machine when he took delivery. Fantastic that it can happen!
