60 to 66 Chevy Truck Owners
Since there is a "55 to 59 chevy truck owners" thread I thought following suit with the next neweer generation thread would be interesting.
Let's see your 60 to 66, and a link to your build thread if ya got one.
My 1965 Shortbed Step Side
Here's my '65.
Currently undergoing a color change from all white to factory two tone layout of orange and white. I have widened the bed 4 inches, relocated the gas tank to the frame, installed a '67 Camaro dash and lots of other little custom touches.
Truck has a 350 4 bolt small block Chevy, '70 vintage and a M-21 4-speed, '65 vintage.
Here's a link to my build thread: http://talk.classicparts.com/showthread.php?t=13928
My 66 the day we pulled it out of the tobacco barn when I bought it for $1500. I replaced both rockers and patched the floor. It's in grey epoxy primer now, waiting for spring and some spi black epoxy for the top coat.

A never ending project, just don't tell the wife. :D
I just bought a 63 long bed with a 283. Don't have it home yet.
1965 long bed with bench seat, smogger 350 and 3 spd. Not much right now. Waiting for the better half to give birth to my first child before I incur any "unnecessary" expenses :sweat:
'63-66's C-10's had the ladder style frames with coils.
So, 63's are kind of a one year only deal, wrap around windshield knee knocker cab with the updated suspension.
Got any photos of your new aquisition? :mwink:
BTT. I guess there aren't many 60-66 owners here?
excuse my salute, it's the only pic i have of mine
traded this for a 59 truck
Yours is looking great. I've got rid of the 350 chevy with a 70-72 455 olds that's sitting on an engine stand right now. C heads, Torker intake, matching q-jet... came out of a boat. I also got rid of the fleetside bed and now it has a lwb stepside off a 62 GMC. Not a lot of time with a new baby. Looking for a good st-10 or muncie and a hydroboost system. Hoping I can find an olds diesel-powered 73-87 and kill two birds with one stone. Clip should swap in with very little work.
Here's my 66 as it looked the last time it was driven (2005?)
I'm embarassed to say that I've been stuck at the "rolling chassis" stage for WAY too long. (Feb 2006!):embarrass
The date stamp on the pic is wrong, but still ... :(
at least it's not sitting outside getting more patina...
Oh well, she's got the rest of the house :thumbup:
BTW, 66GMC that's a beautiful job you got going so far. Specs on the engine?
It's a 454 block out of a 1979 C20 (TH400 trans out of same donor)
which I bought for $800.00 and drove it home.
Bored .030 & Balanced
Forged Flat-tops Clevite (Mfr'd by Probe, IIRC) 224-2519.030
Comp Cams XE284H camshaft
Reconditioned (stock) 781 heads
3/8" pushrods and guideplates
New Scat 9000 Crankshaft
Pioneer Rod bolts
HV / HP oil pump & screen
Edelbrock RPM Air Gap
Holley 3310 (750 CFM)
Lots of chrome :D
Overhauled the TH400 and installed shift kit
B&M Nitrous Holeshot 2400 RPM stall convertor
I had the engine built with an underdriven 6-71 blower in mind, but that seems like just a dream at this stage of the game.
Suffice it to say that life has been getting in the way ... :(
