Not missing them as such, was loooking at the 1/2, 3/4, 1 ton and dually "Smaller" Chevy and GMC trucks.

BUT.... PLEASE do post up any of those you feel are interesting.

I am sure most of us on here see this as a resource, so sometimes it is a photo, or learning about a C70 that makes our day.

Simple things like which badges go with which trucks or when you need to modify a latch pin, hinge etc.

I am really thankfull for all the responses on here already.

As some of you know, I have this truck on my back burner, the owner does not yet know that I am interested in the truck...... Seems he parked it up about 2 years ago as there were little niggling issues with it, and bought a modern Benz instead that he really enjoys.

It is starting to seem like a good proposition, if the price is right, to follow up on this truck, as it is halfway there, 350/700R4 combo, rear on bags, front on 5 stud, but bags not refitted after conversion..... it ha been repainted and has some rust.

This tends to be one of my worries about buying a truck that has been repainted, either in gloss or just primer/matt black, often it masks all sorts of horrible surprises.

Note the engine bay area paint in the YouTube clip.

Here is a YouTube clip of the truck, apologies for the camera and quality......


So what do you think?





Bed may be original, but needs replacing, that said, I would carry a load of anything, excluding sand or grit on it.



Seat has been reupholstered, which I personally like, my wife hates it, and wants a "Mexican blanket" in there.



Thanks again for all the responses, and keep 'em coming from your personal collections.

Thanks,

I think so too, and this thread is now again got me thinking whether it is better to buy something like this truck, which is local, had a lot done, but is not perfect, or to buy a truck in the USA, either "redone" or original.

I would be quite happy to have something like this Project Rhino at first sight......






But then the surprise may be more than skin deep.

Thanks for posting up.

(I like both Chevy and GMC, but as my wife is a 50% partner in this it will probably end up being a Chevy)

That's nice Red Foreman

Here is a 60 second clip of the one sacrifice we are making to get into a truck.

Yep the link works. That is such a cool looking little car. It certainly takes me back to the 60ís when Northern California was flooded with small imports. There were Beetles of course, but there was also Austins, Simca Arondes, Fiats, Renault Dauphines, Vauxhalls, Peugeots, Morris Minors, a very early Datsun pickup with the 4 speed on the column, and of course all the BMC sports cars. There were also a bunch of others I canít remember the names of so clearly.

It was a fun time. My dad bought a new 1958 Metropolitan and when the engine wore out swapped in a dual carb MGA engine and 4 speed. That thing really flew on its 13Ē cotton cord tires. The weak link were the rear axles, which he broke 13 of before he got tired of fixing it all the time.

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

I could not imagine my truck without this style hood! Even though it's a 62, I just had to find a 60-61 style GMC hood. I found this one at a local flea market for $200, talked the guy down from $300. Not a spot of rust, not even surface rust on it, just a couple dozen dents and dings to hammer out. No modifications required to fit my 62 hinges etc.

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

I'm currently finishing up the restoration of my 61 using the original hood (it's been in the family since 1966). Never thought of changing it!

I applaud you guys who like the "flat" look of the 62-66 hoods...I simply prefer the "well endowed" look a lot more. No shame at all!! HAHA

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

There's a 1960-61 chevy hood a buddy a mine has...I've been thinkin of picking it up, but I like the looks of the 66 hood on a 63-66 better. I was thinking of getting it...doing some work on it and selling it. Cool thread though! And the "ugly snout" is the best part a those trucks!
