Mine is a '61 with a '61 hood. I made the grille insert. I've owned it over 30 years. I think the style of the '60 and '61 hoods grows on you over time. The '64 - '66 trucks are boring by comparison.

I think you are right, they do grow on you, it was what Nicola and I wanted originally but they are a bit rare over here.

I also think that thankfully taste differs in the world, so the later trucks have a beauty and appeal of their own.

I am always amazed and actually quite envious of guys who keep cars/trucks for 10/20/30 years.

Did you get your truck from Surfdaddy on here? I sold him a hood a few years ago for his truck, and I'm pretty sure that is the same truck in the first pic. Just curious.

1961 Apache 20 - original (rebuilt) 283. I learned to drive on my Grandfather's 1961 and I have always liked the 60/61 trucks.

Yes and No. It is the same truck but I did not get it from him. He was doing the truck justice, I felt that he was on the right track. For some reason he sold and I then bough it from the guy that had it then. I tried contacting him but no luck.

Re: How many '60 and '61 "Ugly Snout" trucks survive?

It's probably a combination of shame and preference! I have a 63 with the flat hood, my neighbor has a 61 with the snout hood. Both have the same hinges. If I were to do it differently I would have bought a 60-61. if I remember the snouts sell for more. But it's the shortbed that sells itself.

Here is mine with the hood off and on a stand next to it. One owner very solid and appears to be 100% original with the 235 and 3 on the tree. Original bill of sale lists options as chrome bumpers, turn signals and side view mirrors. And it also has the big rear window.

The wheels are not and I am not sure about the hubcaps. When I received it there were three large flat hub caps with it. I son't know what the originals look like.

Here,s my 61. Came off my uncles farm in Nebraska. I guess that makes me the 2nd owner. Original wheels, not sure if original tires, hubcaps being painted this winter. 235, 4 speed granny. He splurged for the turn signals, spotlight and radio!
