1962-63, and I'm leaning towards a 3/4 ton model of some kind.

BTW, the El Dorado camper is a slide-in job.

With that back axle,it's at least a 3/4 ton?(2500 series) And the plate is a late '80s (1988??) passenger car tag,too? (CA Truck plate would be like a A12345,12345A or 1A12345 format up to that time?)

8-stud wheels with a Wide-Side bed means a ¾-ton 1500, as already set: there was no 1-ton pickup with that kind of bed, for this generation of trucks. Which means a 1502 model code (1500 model on the 2nd available wheelbase)

@ Buc84: GMC 1960-66 nomenclature for light-duty models was:
• ½-ton → 1000;
• ¾-ton → 1500;
• 1-ton → 2500;
• 1½-ton → 3000 (with the light-duty cab, made from 1960 until 1962 only).

GMC's numbers back then were always a little confusing,I always somehow end up using the later system?

The numbers of that generation are in fact the same as the ones of the 1939-59 truck lines, but multiplied by 10: ½-ton 100 → 1000, ¾-ton 150 → 1500, and so on.
This said, I also have to think carefully about it every time I have to give the exact model name for a truck of this generation :D

1987+ plates, not that they show up registered anywhere.
