Not an expert by any means, but I do know the C60 inner fenders mount somewhat differently and are about an inch shorter than the C10/20 ones. Attached is a pic of a '61 C60 cab that shows the same inner fender mount. I was under the impression that the actual cabs were pretty much the same. Which cab do you want to use?

That's what I was under the impression. The c60 apparently are wider. The front cab mounts on the c60 mesasure from center whole to center whole about 50 inches. The wholes on my cab are about 40 some inches... looks like I'm going to need to cut he c60 up and use its floor and modify to fix my cabs floor I haven't quite set it on the frame yet tho

The 64 through 66 cabs are matches but apparently only between c10-c20 models they bolt with no issues
