Looks like the shifter tower. There were no big block Chevy's then !
floor pan, bolts to stock hump, to mount floor shifter on..?
Yep, tower for the floor shifter. No real big block Chevy's yet except for The W block.
Love seeing some of the old Aussie photos. The first one is probably in Western Australia which is where the Swan Brewery was(see Swan pilsener sign)
Another Aussie one. I checked and this dealership still operates in Mt Gambier South Australia
Ah ok,thanks for the info.I didn't know they where still going
FOUND THIS...IT WAS A POOR COPY OF A BAD COPY,BUT A REAL KICK ,NONE THE LESS.....GOD BLESS MICKEY!!
If i remember correctly i read an old article on the British UK Holden owners club website that the 1960 FB StationWagon went to England and is also still with the same owner there.
V6's ??? As far as I know the options back in the day were 6-in-line or V8.
All those emblems on those hood sides are V-6's 305" gas hogs as I remember. V-8's were pretty rare for those in my area.
Like Jimmy Six said, these were big old V-6s; they started at 305 cubic inches for the pickups, and for commercial truck they got much bigger. They had a boxcar load of low end torque, but were heavy and thirsty.

Rootie...Who is in the midget ??
The GMC 702, along with Ford's 534, IH's 549FTV and the Hall-Scott 1091 were truly the gasoline engine's last gasp in fire service applications. The Hall-Scott, often straight-piped, put out a 3-foot long flame when in pump gear.
Looks like Ted Parker in the 54
