1960 Chevy Extended Cab
12 January 2008
From Steve :
This is my 1960 Chevy Pick-Up. It is definitely a One-of-a-kind truck. It started out its life as a Panel truck. [ front view ] The body has been cut down and now it is a short frame extended cab. The rear section of the frame has been cut and modified with no changes to the wheelbase.
I bought this truck in California around 1997. Originally it had a 327 motor in it. I took it to Texas for three years, blowing up the 327 in the meantime! I put in a 1979 350 ci which I had taken out of a Chevy Impala. I then took it to Arizona, where I blew up the 350! Then I decided to install a Small Block 350 ci. While I was at it, I added a 2-bolt main, double roller timing chain and a mild R/V cam. It also now has LT-1 aluminum heads, Weiand Stealth manifold and an Edelbrock 750CFM carburetor.
[ engine compartment ]
Some other modifications it has are a 1966 12-bolt rear axle with a four speed granny transmission with a 12" clutch and pressure plate. The brake system got a new hydraulic clutch and master cylinder. I also installed power steering out of a later model 1/2-ton Chevy.
The interior [ view ] is started with a 1985 Chevy S-10 tilt steering column installed, bucket seats from a Mazda RX-7. I went with a simple dash -- just the speedometer, fuel, and temperature gauges. It also has a slider back window.
The truck was being built for my nephew, who fell in LOVE with it the first time he saw it. Here are some more photos in my Photobucket album.
Unfortunately, however, he was shot and killed in a home-invasion. Now I do not have the heart nor motivation to go on with it.
Any gear heads interested in a Project?
Steve, we are so sorry to hear about your nephew. May sharing the pain somehow lessen it some for you. Perhaps there will be someone among us who can help you out. Our most sincere condolences. ~~ Editor
