My '65 was that same color blue originally and I plan to redo it someday in that color. It came off my family farm about 30 minutes from you in Fredericksburg when I was 16, but that was a long time ago...

Re: 60-66 Blue

It isn't original paint but Original Color (TAMPICO TURQUOISE METALLIC)
repainted once. Original paint on bed was the old faded paint in great
condition. Previous owner stripped down the bed to bare metal and
primed. He also removed rear bumper and installed a tail pan on the bed
Still has decent original pine wood in bed.
Interior is all original and in great shape.
Best part is that truck NEVER had any RUST and virtually no dings or dents.
Also the rare side trim for 1960 and 1961 is all there, but currently
not on truck yet. Three on the tree runs and drives like new.
Needs original rims and caps to really look outstanding.
Notice the LOW vin # 299th 1961 truck made
Check out a couple more pics.

Re: 60-66 Blue

Neat truck. I suspected it was probably repainted. It's rare to see any 60-66 with good factory paint still intact... especially a 60-61. And extra-especially in a rare metallic color like Tampico Turquoise!

Re: 60-66 Blue

Ole Blue a couple of days before leaving for Columbus for the Goodguys Nationals a couple of weeks ago. 1966 454/Th350. Haven't converted the rear to 5-lug yet. Now renamed Lucille (Loose Wheel) after the left front decided to exit the vehicle at 65 mph on the interstate. Fortunately the body work has not been started yet. Poor LF fender needs some additional attention now beyond the basic rust repair. Fortunately only minor damage to the left lower control arm. She stayed home and I took the oval window VW instead. I thought my son tightened the lugs and he thought I did. Tough lesson learned, but could have been much worse. Won't make that mistake again.

Ouchhh! Luckily it wasn't worse. Hopefully the wheel and tire didn't get anyone.

Re: 60-66 Blue

Fortunately no one was around so no others involved. I was quite thankful for that.

Yeah it has a rather aggressive rake. It is really hard to find tires for those tiny wheels. :-)

I had the same thing happen to me only mine was on a tow truck going down the freeway. I had been hearing a clunking noise so I called the tow truck to tow me home. Suddenly the tow truck driver said o crap and pulled to the side of the road. I looked back and saw my tire bouncing down the freeway into on coming traffic and then saw it come bouncing back. I have no idea what it hit. I don't think it was a car because there were no accidents that we could see after we proceeded on our way. Fortunately no damage was don to my truck or anyone else. I never got the wheel and tire back. It landed on the center divider and I did not have a vehicle to go pick it up in.
