69/70 GMC Long Horn


Recommended Posts

I have a chance to purchase this truck for $1,200 can.

It's a GMC Long Horn. Ordered in 1969 for 1970. It is numbers matching (all original) with original 396 big block and 3 speed M-44 tranny.

Can anyone give me some back ground on this truck?

 

Thanks, :banghead:

Sounds like a good buy if it's in reasonable shape. May want to check out

The Longhorn has a 6 inch or so longer bed than a regular truck from that year. I am not sure if they had a 6 1\2 foot bed but I do know of two brothers that bought identical trucks that year but one had a Longhorn version and the other had a regular truck and the Longhorn had a 8 1/2 foot bed on it. At the front of the bed you can see where the addition has been made. Hope this helps :banghead:

yep, longhorns were rare trucks. Not too many of them produced, they were as stated before its a long bed with an extra 6 inches totaling 8 1/2 feet. You will notice that the extra 6 inches of the bed looks like it was just thrown in there (not finished looking) Its kind of interesting...

Guys on the 67-72 truck board feel Longhorn's are a hot item right now.  Buy this truck!  You can always sell if you lose interest.

 

 

 

 

Agreed. One of my friends recently bought a 1967 Chevy pickup with an 8-1/2 foot stepside bed. I'm not sure of the style of it (Cheyenne, Silverado, Scottsdale, etc.) but from what I've heard, it has a 400cid V8 and a 4-speed. I'm pretty sure it isn't a 1-ton, but from the research on these trucks, I can't find any indication that it isn't. I'm led to believe that his truck is a half-ton with an extra long bed. Either way, it's a pretty sweet truck.

The longbed step sides are fugly IMO...pretty interesting to look at tho...

They are indeed rare compared to a regular step side or fleet side but the value is not as high as a longhorn due to it being less desireable. btw...the only option for a chevy would be a C/10(20 or 30), Custom, Custom deluxe, cheyenne or super cheyenne back in the day...the silverado and scottsdale were not introduced untill the next body style
