Wow! I would have loved to attend the New York World's Fair, just to check out this exhibit!  I see special order  white frames and chromed wheels. I'll take the blue 6500. Here is a cool idea for a build, a tri axle 6500 mixer with 478 V6.

"These custom bed, GMC T-16s were photographed in 1936 shortly after delivery to GM's Detroit Branch. The Detroit Branch was a GM corporate sales and service organization located near the GM Building in downtown Detroit during the 1930s and '40s."

That's a sweet Advanced Design Panel, completely different era than the topic subject.  The fender chrome streaks are very desirable.  The fender turn signals are unusual.  The taillight is different too.  The full hubcaps, never seen that on one of these before.  Cool picture.
