More truck pictures of my old truck

From Ben :

I just purchased this great old Task Force Series Chevy dump truck.

I needed a way to haul some brush and saw this in an eBay classified ad. It was close enough for me to get and seemed like a decent deal ... not to mention the fact that I liked it.

Looking around this site, it seems like some of you have bought better trucks cheaper. Around here a functioning dump body truck is worth this much regardless what type of truck it is.

The old truck is a 1959 C-60 with a 261, 4-speed with a 2-speed axle. It shifts good (including the axle), and the PTO and dump bed work great.

Unfortunately, the brakes don't work at all and the body is rough. Mechanically it's original, so I'm happy about that.

I hope to find some sheet metal at some point, but for now, it will be used as is - on and off the road.

It looks to me like four wheels are Firestone RH5's and two are something else, but they are the outer rears so I can't see the face of the wheels. The only other part I question is the GVW. It states that the GVW is 19,000.

Anyway, I'm glad I found this site. I'm sure I will need your help on this project and my 1970 Chevy C10 Short Box.
