Rust buckets? I would have gladly traded the sheet metal on any one of those trucks for what was on mine when I acquired it. I could have shown you a genuine rust bucket!!

Forum member Dinos63 ended up with one of the trucks and recently got it all cleaned up. Looks great.

Re: This is a cool thing, unsold 66 Chevy trucks!

Those trucks were interesting for sure. Wonder why the bed wood wasn't in them? Think the motors were seized?
Also it was nice to see the original color of the 230 engines. Darker blue than I thought.

Re: This is a cool thing, unsold 66 Chevy trucks!

An historically strange situation. Never gonna see anything on that scale again. Financially it made no sense, and still doesn't. What it did was create something to talk about, then, now, and forever.
I'm sure the bedwood just rotted away and fell out. The steel skid strips are still there, bolted in.

The engines were not all seized. I bought a 1964 from there, 3 miles on it. Put a bore scope in the cylinders of the 230 and everything looks perfect. This particular truck though was stuck. Soaked it for over a year with mystery oil and ran just the oil pump to lubricate bearings best I could. Still locked so I decided to toss a battery in it. Boom , unlocked. Thats as far as I went , did not try to start it. Many of these vehicles, the new owners had them running by the end of the auction like the 1964 Station Wagon.My truck is Now resting in a sea container till I get more time. All but one truck had no bed wood , that truck was parked in a shed till the auction. I was able to turn many of the engines by hand the day before the auction. Lots of bad info out there on these trucks. To me and me only I guess, its history I wanted to be a part of since I love these trucks more than most. The things or details Ive leaned mean something to me because I like trucks the way they came from the factory. Several of these trucks have been restored , horribly I might add , they just used their own interpretation of original like so many do.

This poor truck , 3 miles, was from what I here , pretty badly damaged by the shipping company the new owner used to transport for him.

Very nice, glad to hear a few here got one of these vehicles.
A seized motor wouldn't be a huge deal, just yank it, drive out the pistons, hone out the cylinders or bore it, re-ring it, replace all the gaskets.... and off you go. Brand new motor.
