ALTHOUGH VERY ORIGINAL AND BELIEVED TO HAVE 60K ORIGINAL MILES. THIS TRUCK HAS RECENTLY UNDERGONE AN EXTENSIVE MECHANICAL AND COSMETIC RESTORATION. THIS WOULD MAKE FOR A GREAT DAILY DRIVER. OR WONDERFUL ADDITION TO ANYONE'S COLLECTION.  

WE JUST PICKED UP THIS RARE 1968 GMC 1500 WIDESIDE. THE TRUCK WAS BUILT IN FREEMONT. CA AND HAS SPENT ITS LIFE IN RENO NEVADA. IT LOOKS. DRIVES AND RUNS LIKE IT JUST PULLED OF THE LOT. THE PAINT AND INTERIOR ARE STUNNING.

EXTERIOR:

The exterior is like new with a fresh coat of paint. bright chrome and new wheels and tires. The engine compartment was also detailed and shows very. very well. The bed was lined with LineX. so you can use the truck without worrying about damaging it.

The interior was also refurbished and looks like new. The seat was reupholstered. new carpet was installed. a new dash pad and color-matching door panels were also updated.  Not only does everything look like new inside. but everything works as it should.

We thought the truck would look great with a 4" lift and some more aggressive tires. but we decided to leave it stock so the next owner could decide what direction they wanted to take it. If you would like to do a lift. or anything else to the truck to make it exactly how you want it. we would be happy to help. Give us a call or message us to discuss.

PRODUCTION HISTORY 

A new. more modern look came in 1967. along with a new nickname: "Action Line". It was with this revision of the C/K truck that General Motors began to add comfort and convenience items to a vehicle line that had previously been for work purposes alone. Updated styling features for the 1967 Chevy Pickup trucks came with new body sheet metal that helps fight rust and a pickup box made of double-walled steel. The majority of 10 and 20 series Chevrolet trucks from 1967 to 1972 were built with a coil spring trailing arm rear suspension. which greatly improved the ride over traditional leaf springs. However. the leaf spring rear suspension was still available on those trucks. and standard on 30 series trucks. The front suspension on all Chevrolet trucks were independent front suspension with coil springs. GMC models came standard with leaf springs with coils springs optional; all four-wheel drive models (Chevrolet and GMC) had leaf springs on both axles. 1967 was the only year for the "small rear window" (RPO A10 offered a large rear window as a factory option[3]). The standard drivetrain came with a three-speed manual transmission and one of two engines; the 250 in3 straight six or the 283 cu in (4. 6 L) V8. The optional transmissions were the four-speed manual. the Powerglide and the Turbo-Hydramatic 350 and 400. The 292 six and the 327 in3 V8 were the optional engines. The 1/2 ton trucks came with a 6 x 5. 5–inch bolt pattern. the 3/4 and 1 ton trucks came with an 8 x 6. 5–inch bolt pattern.

The most visible change in differentiating a 1968 from a 1967 was the addition of side-marker reflectors on all fenders. Also. the small rear window cab was no longer available. The GMC grille was revised. with the letters "GMC" no longer embossed in the horizontal crossbar. Another addition was the Custom Comfort and Convenience interior package that fell between the Standard cab and CST cab options. In 1968. Chevrolet celebrated 50 years of truck manufacturing. and to commemorate. they released a 50th Anniversary package. which featured an exclusive white-gold-white paint scheme. Also in 1968. the Longhorn model debuted on 3/4 ton trucks. Featuring a 133-inch wheelbase identical to the one-ton vehicles. it added an extra 6 inches to the bed. Longhorns. interestingly. were 2wd only; no factory Longhorn 4x4 was built.

The 327 c. i. V-8 engine was enlarged in 1969 to 350 CID (stroke increased from 3. 25 to 3. 48) with a net horsepower rating of 195-200. depending on emissions package 255 hp (190 kW). 350 cu in (5. 7 L). Along with the new engines came a new grille design for Chevrolet trucks and a more upright hood for both Chevrolet and GMC trucks. A utility variant. known as the K5 Blazer. was also introduced with a shorter wheelbase of 104 inches (2. 42 mm). The GMC version. known as the Jimmy. was introduced the same year. Some internal cab changes were also made. most notably the switch from a hand-operated parking brake to a foot pedal. and a more modern looking two-spoke steering wheel with plastic horn button replaced the previous year's three-spoke wheel with chrome horn button. Also new this year were upper and lower side moldings. which added another two-tone paint option. These were standard on CST trucks. and optional in any other trim level.
