Yes, and a beautiful example as well! Hauling heavy and looking good doing it (although truck seems to be empty)

Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

I used to see a lot of tandem axle Chevy dump trucks in both the '67-'72 and '73-'87 body styles. Usually a 8-10 yd. bed, 427, 5X4 transmission. Must have been a common spec..

That is what the old GMC looked like that we had years ago. It was a 350 4sp with a 2sp rear. I pulled a 40 foot cattle trailer with it almost every weekend when I was 13 yrs old.

I could see that being a perfect use for a tractor like that. I could use one like that now and have a variety of 5th wheel trailers

Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

Got this '68 C60 a while back. 366/5+2 with a 16x8 dumping flatbed with grain box sides. Old farmer gave it to me for free because it "wasn't running right". Has 6 new tires and a new Edelbrock 650 on it so can't complain. Found it had 4 dead holes, engine tear down revealed a worn out timing chain and 7 valves bent from hitting pistons. Luckily no other damage. Threw in a new set of valves, 3 push rods, a timing set, and a new oil pump, now it's running great! Tear-down also revealed the engine is bored 030 over. Most of the body is really solid, small amount of rust around step/fender and dented passenger fender. I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with it. Hauled a little bit around the farm and for my neighbors construction company. Will probably eventually either sell it or build some kind of car hauler out of it for my race truck.

Re: 67-72 C/K/T-40's-90's!

Can't beat that! That motor must have never been revved real hard for a chain bad enough for pistons and valves to meet but not jump. I'd imagine you could sell that grain body/hoist rig when the time comes.
