From Travis :

I bought my truck last April (2009). I have always loved the 60-66 style truck as it's an instant classic.

My buddy has a 1949 F*&d and always gives me a hard time because I would only get a Chevy. Although he prefers F*&ds, he found out about this one for me from a girl he went to college with. It was owned by her brother, who got it from Nebraska.

Originally this old truck was green, but now it's wearing primer.

The truck is a C20 with a 230 and 4 speed. I will eventually replace all that with a more modern power train.

My plans are to turn it into a driver, not a trailer queen. It needs fenders and some dents pounded out, but overall -- I love it. Better brakes, and steering parts are also on the agenda.

Presently, I'm slowly working on it and getting it put together, but for now, it's fun to cruise around with. I've taken it on a couple cruises so far this summer. It's just fun to drive.

This is a great site. I've learned lots of stuff in the research pages so far. Interesting fact is, I didn't know that 1963 is the only year with that grille. To me, that makes it more unique and my goal is to keep that grille to keep it looking original.
