1967 GMC Camper Cruiser

Does anyone have any information about the "Camper Cruiser"? My dad and I restored a 1967 GMC that has "Camper Cruiser", "Custom" and also "DP Truck Center San Diego" emblems on it. I can't seem to find any info on these things, especially the DP Truck Center Part. If anybody has any info they could share that would be great. I even tried calling GMC with the VIN # and they had nothing for me. Thanks!

DP truck center was probably a sales lot that may have changed hands or gone out of business.

I'm not sure on the Camper Cruiser part. It may have been a dealer installed trim packge or have been through one of the shops that tricked out trucks and vans before they hit the dealer.

My 71 GMC is a Custom, which is the trim package and it is a camper special which means it has the hd equipment on it.

camper cruiser was a GMC option, 67 only.
camper special was a ford
custom camper on a GMC could be one of two things;
133 inch wheel base, then it's the same as a longhorn, only thing more HD on that over a *normal* 3/4 ton would be the frame
127 inch wheel base, it is just an option that is nothing more then HD shocks, springs, tires, and a sway bar.

Thanks for the info. The truck has a 327 V8, TH-400, and Factory A/C. I found a press release online from '68 that dealt with the Camper Cruiser but that's all I've seen at this point.

Do you have any photos? I most likely won't be able to give you any insight, but I would like to see it

What an awsome looking truck. I know that GMC only used the "Camper Cruiser" designation for 1967. After that they were called custom campers just like the Chevy. As for DP Truck Center San Diego, I would emagine that was the name of the dealership that it originaly sold the truck. Like Deer Park Truck Center San Diego or something like that. (Thats just an educated guess!!) WES

some searching on that other board;





a little info found too;
according to the '67 GMC Pleasure Trucks brochure, the 'Camper Cruiser' package was available on CS/CM 2500's and CS/CM 3500's.

Thanks for the extra info! Where did you get those pictures from "Longhorn Man"? I searched everywhere (I thought) and have never seen those before, except for the one in the middle.

My dad and I did a complete frame off restoration on this truck. The only thing we had someone else do was the trans. rebuild, seat upholstery, and the line-x bedliner. I love the color of it. Not too bad for a first try at a paint job!
