Description

Chance of a lifetime 3 owner 100% original and untouched 1964 GMC 2500 series Camper Special pickup truck. This is a true "Barn Find" if there ever was one. This truck was sold new in late 1963 in Dry Southwestern Kansas by a GMC dealer salesman who ordered it as a "camper Special" for his best friend and fishing buddy. In 1967 when the mileage was around 30,000 the body style changed for 67' so that friend brought the truck back to his buddy the dealer salesman as a trade on the newest model. Knowing the truck and having sold it originally, the GMC dealer salesman decided he would buy it for himself and use it to camp,and go fishing in. He stored it in a dry barn just as his friend had, and drove it from 1967 to 2009 and never put over 30,000 more on it. When Alan Stevenson bought it in 2009, the original walk through, cab over camper was removed from the bed, revealing the original wood still painted black from the factory and in outstanding unrotted perfect condition, and he united the NOS GMC tailgate and chains the truck was sold new with for the first time. Alan's son drove the truck for a couple years and while he unfortunately did cut the radio hole for a new CD player, Alan was smart enough to cut it cleanly and save the piece to be re-welded in place by any future owner, so thankfully that is in the glovebox along with all the original documents and owners guide.

I bought the truck with 86,000 original miles, and have marveled at its pristine rust free condition. You could eat off the door bottoms - they are that nice and smooth with beautifully preserved factory paint. This truck is the best preserved, most rust free and most original pickup I ever owned, and it is also one of the rarest in that it was special ordered as a Camper Special, plus it got Factory installed options most other trucks never had - it has beautifully working factory power brakes, factory power steering, Hazard switch, optional 17" wheels w/ brand new correct Firestone tires from Coker Tire, SM 420 4 speed manual trans, 305E V6 engine, Custom Cab package (chrome around windshield and door openings, full foam cloth covered seat, dual visors and dual armrests)Custom Cab Chrome grill and Front bumper, Deluxe heater, Heavy Duty Radiator, and Power-Lock (Positraction) rear end. The dealer additionally installed a rare dash mounted GM accessory tachometer and West coast mirrors which I have since replaced with identical 100% correct NOS ones. You can look until you are blue in the face and never see another more rarely equipped truck of the early to mid 60's vintage - especially one that is 99.9% rust free and drives like a dream. So I assume if you are still reading that is because I have captured your attention, and you are interested in knowing about the body. So the body is in remarkable rust free condition, with no major dents, and 100% of its factory sun and age faded patina paint. The paint color is "Light Green" if you look at a 64-66 GMC color chip chart, and is paired with White - both are in outstanding condition considering the age of the truck - being barn kept by all 3 owners was a big plus. Everything sheet metal-wise is as close to perfect as you could ever dream of finding with these exceptions: The bed wheel opening on one side has two tip-of-finger sized holes through the outer skin where the wheel opening braces touch the fender (common on Western trucks) and the other side has only one of these same holes. The only other holes ANYWHERE are two or three pencil eraser sized holes in the drivers side outer rocker. Both front fender lower sections have a series of rust dimples breaking the paint, but no holes noted. This is all very typical of these years of trucks, and if you know anythijng at all about the 60-66 trucks, you know this is about as good as it gets - no former body work ever done anywhere on this truck - 100% original paint, patina truck. The floors are mint and smooth dust-covered underneath - amazingly pristine. Doors are mint (hard to believe I know, but true!) Ceiling and roof - covered by the over-cab camper - so that is why the drip rail and whole cab is so well protected and mint. You can come here, decide if you want it, then drive it to Alaska with no issue. I would do it in a heartbeat. Whomever gets this truck will have a rare rare rare gem in their collection and no one who's ever seen or drove it would say different. Forgot to say - seat was recovered about 3 months ago in GM NOS 100% correct 63-66 GMC truck seat fabric and corresponding Fawn and off-white vinyl accents - done 100% show as per the original cover. Factory optional wheels were blasted and powder-coated white as original, and 100% correct Firestone tires ordered from Coker Tire and installed. Positraction rear fluid was changed. Tune up and brakes re-worked, and power brake booster and power steering control valve and slave cyl rebuilt to perfection. No finer example of a untouched unrestored 64 GMC is known to exist.
