RealRides of WNY - GMC Wideside, c1964

An expert on the subject might be able to nail down the year of this GMC Wideside pickup. Wideside? It was GMC’s nomenclature for their smooth-sided pickup, as opposed to the rectangular-box-with-flared-fenders version, a.k.a. the GMC Fenderside (inset photos). Without a reg sticker on the windshield, it’s difficult (for me) to say if it’s a 1962-63-64-65 or 1966 model. That being said, this example, seen earlier this summer in North Tonawanda, seems pretty solid — except of course for that missing tailgate. GMC (and their cousin Chevy) pickups of this era were available in both 6-1/2 and eight-foot bed lengths in both body styles. Rear- or four-wheel drive versions were offered as well.
