1961 Chevy LCF L-70
04 January 2005
This is Scott Schie's truck. From what I'm told, it's a 1961 LCF L-70 cab. It spent all it's life as a water truck for a fire department. It has a V-8 motor in it -- maybe a 348 -- not sure. Whatever they put in there in that year.
The truck has 8,000 miles on it so I didn't have that much work to rebuild it. A few spots where it was rusty but not that bad. So just got a teal paint job and it's going to be a 12' dumping ruff cut flat bed.
Here's some pic's of it from when I started and where I am now. I'll make sure I send a pic when I'm done.
I have had it one year so far and have done good so far.
Thanks and you have a great web site :}
"Godzillalives" is me -- Greg -- a friend of Scott's. It's Scott's '61. He hates computers -- he won't go near them. I was looking for some parts for him and I saw "Dodgezilla" (John's former Dodge Ram was in the Alternate Gallery and is in the Trailering Tech Tips -- Editor). I'm trying to get a 1963 or '64 C-60 fire truck but the guy that has it is nuts on the price but last time I talked to him he's starting to come around. It looks good that I'll have it by spring :}
