Default "Patina Trucks" in the group

After reading newbie Albert Blue's post about his cool all original 63 truck, I thought maybe it would be cool to start a new thread for the purpose of only showing pics of "Patina trucks" in the group.
A Patina truck is a fairly newly coined expression used to describe trucks that still sport all their factory paint, or if not factory, at least old weathered paint that is still un-restored and hanging on. Patina trucks capture a glimpse of the past in a way we cannot replicate after a restoration by preserving the "war scars", fading and age that can only come from a long productive life. Because of this, and the low cost of ownership vs paying for a restoration, Patina trucks are bringing high-dollar prices, and public awareness and demand is skyrocketing.

I will start the thread with a couple pics of my own Patina truck, and then everyone who has one can chime in and add yours. Mine is a well preserved 2 owner 1964 2500 series "Camper Special" with 86K original miles I got from Ulysses Kansas a year or two back. Mine was sold new with a huge over-the-cab camper body on it, so the brand new never installed tailgate was stored in a dry barn from day 1 until 2009 when the camper was removed and it was finally installed on the truck. It came pretty highly optioned with power steering, power brakes, dealer A/C (currently off) 4 speed w/ 305E, Pow-R-Lok (positraction), bumper guards, custom cab equipment, deluxe heater, hazard switch and dual gas tanks. I added the plaid valve covers - couldn't resist

Looking forward to seeing the other patina trucks you guys have - Steve

Very nice find.. I'll post some pics next week. I still need to do some very basic maintenance as well as replacement of the tires. Hmmm. Maybe some new 24" rims..

I really like that truck Steve. You have all seen my 65. It has a similar story as Steves truck. Here are a few shots

Barry, looks like you have some nice options. Mine is very bare bones. Didn't even have a rear view mirror- side view only!!

That's a great truck GMCNUT. It was even better to see it up close and personal at the show in Decatur!

Got some primer on it, but does this count?

Looking good Barry. So, the floor mat was that color originally? Mine was as well, but it tore to pieces when I pulled it out to tend to the rust underneath. Does anyone carry replacement floor coverings that color now?

love these truck Barry and aphaynes - ironic we all have light green colored ones of all things....I have my eye on a 1963 1500 series that is a Palomino Tan & white patina truck...guy wants a pretty penny for it, but its a big window custom cab w/ cool factory options automatic trans, power steering & power brakes and the uber rare factory clock.

Thank you Barry - this is the truck I need a 3:42 gearset Dana 60 and speedo cable adaptor for - I can't remember if you told me I had to change the whole powerlock out or just get the correct ring and pinion to swap from 4:11 to 3:42?

If you have what I need to do this, shoot me what $$ to send you and I will get it on the way....thanks Barry

I heard you cannot even get new mats at all now - Black nor any other color

My favorite kind of thread! These trucks wear some of their history. If only they could talk. Keep the pics and stories coming, great looking GMCs!
