Hello All,

I normally hang out in the plastic modeling section with the keel bottoms. Though I'd post this question over here as it seems you folks have good resources.

When I'm not modeling I'm restoring a 1960 GMC fleetside w/305 V-6. Pictures can be seen here so you know what to look for.

She's in the paintshop now and will be finished by April. I have the Liberty Classic 1/25th. scale diecast and was tring to find out if Hot Wheels or others ever made any smaller 1960-1963 truck (body style was the same, so either will do).

Thank You
Jake

Cool old truck. My highschool girlfriend's dad had one a lot like yours.

I don't believe Hot Wheels did anything remotely close, not even the Chevy from this period of time. I believe the Flashsider is based on a '56 Chevy, and that's probably as close as you can get...unless I'm forgetting something, which happens.

Johnny Lightning does a '60 or so Ford and a '50 Chevy, both of which are reincarnated Racing Champion castings. I don't know vintage Matchbox quite as well, but I don't recall any old regular wheel stuff that comes close except for a Ford that was mid-'60's. Hubley did a mid-'60's Ford as well.

There may be something out there I don't know about, but I wouldn't be surprised in the least if the closest you will find turns out to be Chevy. I think GMC had the better styling most years, but diecast makers seem to like Chevy better.

Good luck! I hope you find what you are looking for.

There's this one called the Custom '62 Chevy (from southtexas site):



The pre-2010 releases of it have a surfboard in the bed.
