Re: Post Your 60-66 Chevy/GMC Customized Lowrider Trucks

i think that first truck is pretty sweet, classy yet lots of vintage and custom touches.

As for the rest of the "lowrider style", I can respect the amount of work that goes into the paint and some of the suuuuper fine detail work on stuff like fender mouldings, chromed undercarriage etc...but all on one truck it kinda looks gaudy

Re: Post Your 60-66 Chevy/GMC Customized Lowrider Trucks

Bit of a surprise a racer like asking about lowriders. You got a bit of the southwest influece there. Give me about another week or so and I'll post some pics of my 60. It's in the shop getting painted as we speak. Candy orange with flames. At first I plannned on a satin hot rod flats paint job, but changed my mind after all the bodywork I did. Now the the hot rod flats paint is just the base.

YouTube- 62 Chevy Ratrod Burnout With Airbags!

I like all kinda of stuff....
Check this out:
Just like the Ole' Bomb cars/trucks and seen one '61 once at a carshow in Charlotte, NC one year that an Ole' Boy tried to make a Bomb truck out of it. It didn't look to bad. Not into the 14 inch wire wheels. Like the old school Hub Caps..... Black Knights etc.
But I do like this look:

Re: Post Your 60-66 Chevy/GMC Customized Lowrider Trucks

l grew up in East San Jose a 1/2 mile away from Story and King(still live here) and can remeber when the low rider scene was going full swing. I spent my weekends on the "boulavard".
I've had many lowriders ,and when I got this truck I had planed to slam it, but I needed a "truck", now that I have a step side , I plan on "lowriding" one or the other .This is how it sits now , just a bit to high.....

Re: Post Your 60-66 Chevy/GMC Customized Lowrider Trucks

For what it's worth my vote would be to slam the fleetside. I just think they look more fluid and natural lowered, compared to a stepside which stylistically looks incongruous to me.

in-con-gru-ous [in-kong-groo-uhs]
–adjective
1. out of keeping or place; inappropriate; unbecoming: an incongruous effect; incongruous behavior.
2. not harmonious in character; inconsonant; lacking harmony of parts: an incongruous mixture of architectural styles.
3. inconsistent: actions that were incongruous with their professed principles.
The day isn't a total waste... I learned something!

And adding a 67-72 stepside bed to a 60-66 truck, see post #15, thus making the front and rear wheel openings non matching makes it even more "incongruous"

Re: Post Your 60-66 Chevy/GMC Customized Lowrider Trucks

It's an early attempt at air conditioning from decades past. These were popular(?) in the 40's and into the early 50's. You loaded it with ice, and fresh air entered the front and the evaporation blew chilled air into the cab. At least that was the theory.

Vintage Window-Mounted Evaporative Cooler
A car cooler is an automobile window-mounted air cooler or evaporative cooler, sometimes referred to as a swamp cooler. It is an early type of automobile "air conditioner."

To cool the air it used latent cooling of vaporization, in other words, cooling by water evaporation. Water inside the cooler evaporates and in the process transfers heat to the surrounding air, giving in return cool air inside. The lower the humidity, the better it works. Because of the dry desert air of very low humidity, they were popular in the southwestern United States like California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and Nevada.


Car CoolerThe technology was an after-sale add-on product for cars and has been around since 1930. It was popular from the 1930s through to the 1960s. The basic unit looked like a canister-type vacuum cleaner. The car coolers were used on antique and classic cars from the Model As to street rods.

One model used balsa-wood shavings in a pad within the unit. The water from the container soaked the shavings and when air was forced through the unit the water would evaporate giving a cooling effect. The cool air would blow through a vent at a right angle on the main unit into the passenger's compartment.

There were several manufacturers of car coolers, examples being Thermador, ClassicAir, Sears Roebuck (Allstate brand) and Star Mfg. The car cooler came in different models from "ram-air" to "fan-powered" types. The "ram-air" type mounted on the passenger side window. It would only work when the car was in forward motion as the air was forced into the tube. It had a water reservoir that held about a gallon (4 liters) of water, which would provide "air conditioned" cooling for about 100 to 150 miles (150250 km). The "fan-powered" model was designed to work when the car was not in motion or when moving at low speeds. It had a built-in fan that forced the air through the cooler tube.

The car cooler is an outdated technology as refrigeration methods used today are more effective. However, there are manufacturers that still make car coolers for antique and classic cars
