Thumbs up Post Your 60-63 Body Style Chevy/GMC Trucks

Post Your 60-63 Body Style Chevy/GMC Trucks.........
Wanna see these Cab Foward Body Style with the Wrap Around Windshields.....


• The "wrap around" windshield, popular throughout the automotive industry, was used by GM from 1955-63. Modified cab and doors in 1964 changed this design to a more flat, slightly curved windshield.

1960 - In 1960, Chevrolet introduced this new body style truck. It was a completely redesigned truck from the previous years, both in appearance and functionality. Front suspension is a newly designed torsion bar system. Rear suspension is a coil spring and trailing arm design. The low mounted grill consists of 2 horizontal bars connecting dual headlamps. CHEVROLET is embossed across lower bar. Center opening of grill has 3 louver insert. Front of hood has oval openings on each side. Parklamps fit in center of vertically louvered bezels and fit in these hood openings. Windshield is a wrap around design. Front windshield pillars slope forward. Vent windows are wider at tip than bottom. The dashboard consists of two large arches on either side. Instrument cluster is housed in left arch. The right arch houses the glove compartment. Master cylinder is a dual cylinder. One side operates brakes. The other side controls a hydraulically operated clutch. Small back window is standard with big back window optional. Front bumper vertical bolt holes are 3 1/4" apart. Custom cab trucks have aluminum trim strip from front fender to rear of bed on fleetside models. Side emblem consists of CHEVROLET on top with the word APACHE and series designation below.

1961- Very similar to 1960 truck. Lower bar of grill is now smooth. Plated grill insert is similar to 1960 but also has four vertical louvers and the letters CHEVROLET. Parklamps now have winged design bezels on either side of lens. Side emblems consist of the word APACHE and the series designation only.

1962- Similar to previous years but with the following changes. New modern hood without oval openings as in previous years. Character line around body is now continued around sides and front of hood. Parklamp lens is mounted in similar location surrounded by aluminum bezel. Turnsignals are now standard equipment. Grill is similar except center oval has 9 rectangular openings made from 2 vertical and 2 horizontal bars. Lower bar again has CHEVROLET embossed. Single headlamps are now used surrounded by large ribbed bezels. Custom cab trucks trim extended from front fender to rear of bed on fleetside models. A second strip of trim branched off of door trim and extended to rear of bed. Side emblems consist of a red bowtie and the series designation on top of a vertically ribbed background.

1963- Similar in appearance to earlier years. Front suspension now uses variable rate coil springs. Clutch uses mechanical linkage. Grill has CHEVROLET embossed in lower bar and single headlamps surrounded by smaller round bezels. Center of grill consists of 56 rectangular holes formed by 3 horizontal and 13 vertical bars. Front bumper vertical bolt holes are now 4 3/4" apart. First year for the 230 C.I. and 292 C.I. engines. Side emblem is a vertical rectangle with series designation on upper portion and red bowtie below.

The fun part about this forum is that someone makes this thread every few weeks, and I get another opportunity to post pictures of my ugly old pile of crap.

Here is the 60 I bought last fall. I've been working on it all winter. Changed the gear ratio (3.73), added power streering and refinished wood in the bed to name a few. Can't wait for spring so I can drive it!!

The grille teeth are Corvette, the spots are are just dummy aftermarket units and the parking light bezels are cover with a metal mesh.

Hey Pro/street, what size tires are you running in the rear? I see the mini-tubs but, are you still running trailing arms?
