Features The Official 60-66 C-10 Chevy Truck Picture Thread

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by TexasHardcore, May 8, 2006.

  1. They are 64's you can tell by the fender badge. at least one is a GMC no fender badge and dual headlites. and one appears to be a C60.

  2. Ive so so much stuff ( I think I have more than 50 60 thru 66 trucks) that's its scattered in different places. Back when those where parked there wasn't a real demand for them. The 63 was a running driving truck less than 10 years old when I bought it for $450. the others where a couple hundred. I myself prefer the 64 thru 66. And I prefer the GMC to the chevy. Never liked that wrap around windshield as much. Ive collected some pristine body parts. enough to build two rust free dent free big window trucks. And If I never get around to them. Then someone else will have a chance. The GMC's have rear leaf springs.

    While doing some surfing through the HAMB I stumbled upon the 60-66 topic. I have a very unusual '64 C10 that I thought might be of interest to the readers herein;
    My '64 is a very rare Club Cab, it is a variant of the Sub's having a back seat utilizing the rear portion of a Sub and the big back window panel of a pickup. I have been told that the truck is "a Railroad Truck", a special build for the railroads. To date I have found five of these trucks located in various parts of the US.
    I put the cab on '98 Chevy C-10 Z71 extended cab chassis, complete with the steering, disk brakes, etc.. The engine is a 98 5.7 V8, trans 4L60, diff is also a 98 10 bolt.
    In order to make the chassis fit under the 64 body we had to harvest the cowl and floor pan back to the front portion of the front seats. This allowed us to use the '98 steering column, and power brake booster.

    Pretty rare truck you got there, I've often thought those would make a great race car tow vehicle. In the 60's the Suburbans were quite popular for that, one of the first ones I saw was Don Garlits' black and white one.

    Your photo prompted me to post a mod I did on my 66 Suburban.
    Someone had done a pretty sketchy quarter panel (partial) replacement many years ago, starting with a wrecking yard part and brazing it on, it had a moisture trap on the back side so was showing bubbling in the paint.
    Long story short, I got a replacement quarter for a pickup and as you know that meant dealing with the gas fill door, decided to reroute the fill location to behind the tail light.
    Was able to make room in the opening for a remote tail gate release also.

    I have always wanted a '64-66 GM Suburban, I would prefer a 1/2 ton 4x4. Have never found a decent one worth buying.
    All of the bugs are pretty well out of the truck now. Had a hard time getting all of the electronics to talk to each other. I used the original '98 ECM computer which I had re-programed to eliminate the functions I did not need with Painless Wiring looms.
    I have had a '63-66 GM pickup in my life since 1963 when I bought a new one. I sold a '66 camper special that I had for 18 years to my son, then was sorry I did that. Two years ago I bought a '66 C-10 Custom Cab fleet side with factory air, tinted windows. I was in the process of rebuilding that truck when I found the '64 RR truck. I switched my efforts to the RR truck.

    I learned to drive my brothers 64 long bed fleetside, 292/4speed, once you get the hang of those compound 4 speeds you can drive anything.
     
  8. This 66 3/4 ton belongs to my wife. Her daddy bought it in December of 65. he gave it to her 7 years before he died. 292 engine SM420 trans and 456 rear gears. 60 thru 66 trucks 001.JPG

  10. It still runs. When gas got to $4 she parked it right where its setting. We have talked about adding power steering ,air cond and a set of longer legged rear gears in it. She commonly hauled 6500 pounds of feed in it. one time they miscounted on the load and she had 7500 pounds. I once for my daily 60 thru 66 trucks 008.JPG 60 thru 66 trucks 009.JPG drove a 66 camper special that had factory air power steering 327 engine and turbo 400 three speed transmission. a 83 year old woman who was drunk crossed the center line and hit me head on and totaled it out.

    victory, a new page of truck coverage! The extra cab railroad rig is off the hook, had never seen one of these, thanx for sharing this. The gas filler job o the "Bourbon" is ultra trick. I lust for some parts off all those sittin in the weeds units. Thanx kids for more truck porn. We had our first snow today, c'mon spring.

    Here's a shot of a '62 GMC Suburban that I've been working on for my dad. We lowered it via a square body front suspension swap, along with an O/T engine swap. I just took the first drive with the new chassis and engine last night, so I'll hopefully be buttoning it back up soon.

    I also updated the interior with a '67-72 automatic column, and some Classic Instruments G-Stock gauges for complete monitoring of the truck.

    This '65 C10 was my pride and joy! I spent 10 years collecting parts, involving 3 parts trucks and 1 1/2 years of work every day to finish it. I was blessed to enjoy it for about 3 weeks, until a Big Caterpillar front end loader turned in front of me while I was passing him. The guy never looked, signaled or anything, just turned into me and opened the truck up like a can opener!!! The old truck took the hit well considering because I'm still alive, just still emotionally damaged as you can imagine:mad::(o_O!!

    @ XtechX: That's a shame. I hope you can fix it.

    It would be cool if some of you cats would repost some stuff on your trucks. Time has deleted a big part of this awesome thread. I am really feeling challenged with my 66 c-10 fleet side. I am not the oldest hot rod dude but have a lot of limitations due to health issues. I would have taken better care of my lame ass if I would have known that I would live this long. Need to change boxes, add two new 1/4's to it, put on a new tailgate on, change out a damaged door, replace broken door pins, and a bunch of other small issues. I love this truck as much as about any ride I have had. I am going to wait out this winter process and hopefully get back at it. No quitter here!!

    Have the chance to buy a 1960 Chevy short box, and have been noticing that aftermarket
    always list suspension kits for 63-66, what is different on the 60-62 and will disc brake kits be the same as 62-66?
