About “Daily driver/Towing truck”

I bought the truck form my girlfriend's father as a get me by truck since my 69 C-10 blew up... Two years later... its still a get me by truck and now starting to cost alot of money to keep it going...
The truck is a "mix breed".. the grill says its a Chevy, the steering wheel says its a GMC, the dash says its a Chevy, the tail gate says its a GMC, the center caps say its a Chevy... But the title says its a GMC... so i dont know what it really is...
