While in Illinois I had the fun of replacing the front wheel bearings (ball type) in the front driveway of a high school friend, in the snow nonetheless.
If memory serves me, I think all together, parts and grease cost right at $100.00 back then. I remember reading on this board that the parts are about that amount per side now.
Like a fool, that I was back then, I sold the truck when I found a '72 Monte Carlo that I just couldn't live without. Then I sold that car when I was being sent overseas...

Also, here's a pic of my dad back in the late 60's with his work truck...

Thanks "LostMy65" for the heads up on this thread...
Very cool photos, thanks for posting. Big window, chrome grille, even a spotlight! Sure would be a cool truck to have today.
