1960 Chevy 4 X 4 Panel Truck
Clear Title and presently Registered.
I have owned this truck for 10 years and was planning to bring it back to all it's glory. A health situation has set me and my projects back a couple years and now this one needs to go to someone with the time to do it right.
The body is sitting on a Blazer Frame and Drive Train.
Engine is 400 Small Block that runs good. Some very light start up smoke if it sits a bit. Probably valve seals ( I was going to do them when I had the nose off).
Front Disc Brakes
Brake line is broken so you cannot drive it home unless you want to patch it temporarily. I am including a complete InLine factory bent Stainless Steel Brake line Kit with the other new parts I have purchased towards the rebuild.
Side Door Handles have been shaved and door poppers installed but will need to be adjusted and rewired on rebuild.
Wire harness is from newer Chevy van and everything works but accessories like radio and interior "Mood" lighting and door poppers should be rewired.
Springs and bushings should be done. High or Low, Your Choice.
Needs one Window Regulator. (Drivers)
Frame is peeling from old paint used by previous owner and has some scaling but SOLID FRAME! Just time to clean it up right.
May need some metal work on drivers metal below floor boards. (All 1960 Chevy Pick Up Parts Fit)
I have Most Major Body Panels but some stitching in will be needed on the Hood, rear corners of the body and a Couple small spots in the interior above windshield. May need some windshield lip repair. ( I did not pull glass yet)
Windshield does have 4 rock chips but I was always able to get a sticker and they have not traveled in 10 years of summer and winter running.
Lower inner door panels may make the door repairs easier but I did not buy those yet.
Here are some of the new parts I will include:
New Side window and vent window for Passenger Side ( I already installed Drivers side)
New Never mounted Stainless Steel Headers and all Gaskets and collector Parts
New Clutch with low miles since installed
New 31 x 15 Uniroyal Tires with low miles since installed
New Body Panels:
Drivers Door Skin
Passenger Door Lower Door Skin
Front Lower Bed Section ( for the area behind Passenger Door to Rear Wheel Well)
Cab Floor Outer Section ( To repair only major Floor area)
Front Fender Lower Rear Section.
Rear Window Gaskets
Rear Tail Light Gaskets
Kick Panel Air Vent Door Gaskets
I will include all Receipts for what I have done so far and some original correspondence I have from the original owner.
I have tried to hit all the faults I can think of to represent this truck as accurately as possible.
I will answer all questions so Ask First before you Bid. Serious Buyers only Please.
Mechanical updating will be straight ahead but if you do not have the resources for the body work then this one may not be the one for you unless you are going the Rat Route.
Lots of potential here! I really did not want to let it go. Thanks for Looking and Good luck Bidding!
I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END AUCTION EARLY, AS THIS VEHICLE IS FOR SALE LOCALLY.
SHIPPING arrangements are the sole responsibility of the BUYER. I will be glad to meet your shipper and assist loading.

Domestic manufacturers enjoyed a good year for heavy-duty pickup sales in 2012. PickupTrucks.com has taken a close look at exactly how those sales broke down between each manufacturer and between three-quarter and one-ton pickups. Ford sold some 67,786 F-250 Super Duty models last year with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD falling just behind at 56,359 units. The Ram 2500 HD came in third at 41,918, while the GMC Sierra 2500 HD earned itself fourth place with 27,616 deliveries. While Ford held onto the top spot in the one-ton market, Ram easily nailed down second place by selling more 3500 HD models last year than General Motors sold Silverado 3500 HD and Sierra 3500 HD trucks combined.

So, did GM manage to sell more trucks than Ford with its two brands? Very nearly. Ford sold a total of 119,338 heavy-duty pickups to GM's 111,555. Ram, meanwhile, moved a distant 77,583. But perhaps more interesting is the diesel take rate in this segment. PickupTrucks.com says 80 percent of all domestic one-ton trucks roll from the dealer lot with a turbo-diesel under the hood. Head over to the site for a closer look at the breakdown.
When Mark Reuss was in LA recently, he sat down to have a few words with the scribes at the Los Angeles Times. When the issue of a hybrid Corvette came up, Reuss answered with "Don't laugh." The General Motors president is a complete fan of the possibility, calling it "attractive" and "really fun," believing it would improve GM expertise and that "people would love it."
Naturally, the president being supportive of an idea doesn't give indication that a hybrid Corvette is on the way. However, with supercars like the Porsche 918 Spyder and Ferrari LaFerrari giving hybrid tech a solid, if remote, place in the performance car world, the inexorable trickle-down of technology means we shouldn't be surprised if and when it does happen.
And now that we have that non-negative half-answer to a speculative question, it would be irresponsible for us not to commence rumormilling for the C8 Corvette. Taking Reuss at his word, the C8 will obviously be a hybrid with all-wheel-drive - the left side wheels driven with electric motors, the right side with the mid-mounted, four-cylinder diesel engine. With coefficient of drag of just .16, figure on a 0-to-60 mile-per-hour time of under 2 seconds and an all-electric range of something like 30 miles at top speed. Don't forget, folks, you read it here first.
