@wngrog and @JohnnyC Here are some pieces from a 1964 sales brochure. Literature on the Eaton heater, option price list, and the super cool Jiffy Top.

@Tank5 , was this truck gold when you found it? I’ve not put it on the rack yet to look at those nooks but inside the glove box, in the tool box and behind the seats the painter just decided to leave the gold.

Check out this bitchen shag carpet in the tool box. This is awesome.

Another cool thing I’ve never seen is this old school insulation around the rear windows. Is this OEM?

Lastly, the Acorns landed. I had to install one on the 15” split just for a pic.

When I found it, it had been mostly primered as if they were trying to patch the deteriorating gold paint job. The previous owner had painted the whole truck the gold color you see in the dash. I believe the original color was beigh.

The 45 had lived it's life in New Mexico, originally purchased new in Deming but was moved with the family to Albuquerque. It was a one family owner vehicle then, the owner passed away about 7 years before I found it (2015 I think). The son had intended to restore it but never got to it. It sat in their driveway those 7 years. The son said people would stop and try to buy it but he was not interested in selling then.

It has more of that shag carpet when I found it. I guess I didn't get the tool box piece out.

Here is a picture of when I found it.

I need to buy a pipe bender that jiffy top would work well on my 75 series

Page three from the thread I posted above has the factory 70 series bed canvas pics:

There was a guy not too long ago here in USA that picked up a set of the oem bows and canvas for his 75
