1966 Cab Data

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

With the introduction of the new Cameo in 1955, GM added their most deluxe features as standard equipment. This “Boulevard Pickup” was to stand out above all others.

For the person wanting his 1966 Chevrolet pickup restored to exact originality, authentic data is difficult to find. Most General Motors books from that year have been discarded and aftermarket books are usually far from being complete or accurate.

Therefore, the following data will be of great value to the perfectionist who is restoring a 1966 Chevrolet pickup to exact factory appearance. The pages are direct copies from a rare 1966 Chevrolet truck salesman’s data book. This is the final authority on how your truck originally came from the factory. It should settle any arguments on your restored 1966 Chevrolet.

Suburban Paint Colors

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

During the beginning of the Advance Design years (1947-1949) new Chevrolet Suburbans were sold in one color combination; Channel Green (light) on the lower body and Fathom green (dark) on the upper.

Unless the customer paid extra for a specific paint such as for school bus use or a commercial paint color for a company, the two tone green was the color your received.

Beginning in 1950 this changed. Chevrolet began also offering 12 colors as on pickups and large trucks.
