Yeah. Kinda half and half. No radio,but deluxe dispatch box door and cigar lighter. Can't tell if it has a passenger sun shade or not.

Hi Tim,
None of those were part of the Rampside or Corvan Deluxe trim package. Visible Deluxe features include the cigarette lighter, driver side arm rest (right side arm rest only part of GB deluxe package), door charcoal colored embossing, fancier dispatch door, and white dash panel front (only in 1961 was this part of deluxe trim).

Also, chrome bumpers for non-GBs was always part of custom-chrome RPO, but it does have appropriate windshield chrome.

Maybe so, but if the original color was solid white (quite possibly) then there would have been no belt-line color to continue into the door jambs.

I'm thinking the whole truck is actually original paint,now that I've looked as it closer.

This is the construction materials table for 1961 (it has a typo at the top, showing "deluxe" instead of "standard")

Note that only the "Custom" R10 has the "silver" instrument panel front face. Possibly this was only an early R10 feature, and two-tone dash became standard as it was for the GB during 1961, but I have seen standard '61 FCs with a solid color dash.

Solid color or two-tone FCs could have deluxe trim. And the belt-line cannot be original paint, because RPO belt-line colors were only cameo white or red (if main color was white). If all original, paint code would have to be "SPEC" - can you read the codes on the data plate?
