Not cool. That thing is trashed. Ouch

Sure looks like a early 69 walnut wheel to me.
That"s what I was thinking. That would be a find !

Does this wheel look correct to anyone? Kinda hard to tell w/ the poor images, but it sure looks dark (almost walnut). Can't make out the grain in any of the pictures. http://www.ebay.com/itm/231140534698?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

I maintain that I don't think it's a mystery. The "pebble grain" is simply the "assist grip" steering wheel included in the Z23 "special interior" option and the Z23 option is included in the Z87 "custom interior" option. Any car with the Z23 or Z87 option should have the "pebble grain" steering wheel unless ordered wit the N34 "wood grained plastic sport" steering wheel.

If I am incorrect please explain the difference between a "standard" and an "assist grip" steering wheel.

Huh

I can see no reason to try to disassemble the unit yourself. I suggest that you contact a reputable rebuild company (http://www.powerbrakes.com/) and explain the importance of having yours rebuilt and retaining originality. Point out date codes and finish and have it professionally rebuilt. make sure to insure shipping both directions just in case.

When I bought the car in July 1990 it had that tilt lever. If it is incorrect it was changed before then. The car came originally with the tilt steering per the Dec. 68 picture form original owner.
Huh Maybe different due to the deluxe interior? Does the plastic end match the signal lever? I'm not questioning the originality just curious. Someone out there must know or think they do. BTW Nice Car/Color Combo.

Wood on the wheel and on the dash...
Any idea what the tilt column release lever is from? Looks like Pontiac but the plastic is fluted. I thought Pontiac had smooth plastic.

The "bullet mirror" change out was very popular along with "Grant GT" steering wheels, "slot mags" or "Krager SS" rims, door and rear deck speakers, diamond tuck interior, "Hurst" shifters,"Gabrial Hi-Jackers", "Hooker Headers", "Moroso" chrome for under the hood and removing anything attached to the motor not needed for power. All added"improvements" for cruising town. Unfortunately a lot of the original parts went straight to the trash. Oh did I mention if you could afford paint and body work, adding rear fender flairs and removing those "hideous" factory stripes was a plus. And don't forget the "Isky" cam and "Holley" carb that came with endless adjustments and power valve changes.  Huh Undecided Shocked

It looks like the whole cab was painted white. Does it appear as though the original dark blue is over the white?
yep the entire cab and doors were white (the original top color) w/ the blue over that.The rest of the panels are the blue painted over black primmer. Seems odd but that's how they did it.

OK, My late father purchased this Jimmy new in 1954 (55 1st series) He drove it daily for 30 years and put over 500,000 mile on it. (still retains the original speedo which was still working at last drive)

It had the motor R&R twice the tranny replaced and rebuilt once and the rear end replaced once. Always retained the 6 volt electrical system and has never had a body panel replaces or repainted.

Then the GMC became a victim of poor storage Sad

Is this a SURVIVOR ? just curious.

I think that is one you need to restore, or at least make functional, preserve it, and drive it..  in the name of your father..  Smiley
Thank you I appreciate you reply. We will start w/ function and then paint and drive my son wants to drive it so I have built in help. But what about my old Tonka Truck?

My thought is that neither one of the cars pictured in this post look like they have "SURVIVED" anything. I think that these cars can be repainted and reconditioned at a fraction of the cost of complete restorations and the owners shouldn't feel bad rehabbing them. In fact they should feel good about improving the car's quality of life.

If you are comparing a high performance BB or SB (11:1, high lift & duration cam) to a typical stock motor of course yours won't sound or perform as good. You can easily over spend on headers and exhaust and it will just sound like a stock motor w/ headers and dual exhaust. louder may not be better.
