That's a beauty, J. Beal! Good job keeping it in the family! Grandpa would be proud!

I still have the truck I got my first drivers license in also, in 1971. It's Mom's 1970 GMC Jimmy she bought earlier in 1971. It's in a few hundred pieces in my shop unfortunately.

I've been Ford with trucks except my very first, which was a Toyota Hu-lux. My favorite body style I've owned was my 1986 F250. My favorite Chevy trucks were also the 80's models.

Chevy never made many good front ends. My favorite was the '67-'68s.
BUT ----- GMC made some good looking front ends----LOL! All right I am a little biased---! We have 4 of them.

Sorry I couldn't help it---LOL!

Why did they make the bedsides so tall in recent years? Many you can't reach over the side any more and grab something out. I don't believe that people would load them with something like sand these days where they need the extended sidewalls
Most newer truck look a likes will never haul much more than a couple of bags of groceries, the overpriced high tech leather interior furthest thing from a work vehicles things that so called trucks have become. Wanna haul a push mower or a couple of bags of mulch? Gotta look silly and do it on a trailer ohh no, can't dare scratch a truck bed
Although most are too short to be worth anything for hauling these days to begin with.

This is my other truck its a 1984 53k original miles on it I bought it off the original owner I put a lift some factory blazer wheels and some 35"tires on it . it still has the 250 Inline six runs so sweet
You have a great pair of trucks, J beal! That 250 is a great engine! My '55 has it's smaller brother in it, A 230. Same series of engines. Just about indestructable.
