1960 Chevrolete C-10 "old blue"

Sold new in Nov. 1959 in John Day, Oregon
Original owner trade it in at selling dealer in 1973, dad bought it as a field rig. So nice my older brothers took it to University of Portland for a few year where it gained some history. Folks gave it to me in 1980, not running at that time. Got it running & drove it, repainted in 1987.
Since then I've driven it across the USA once, into B.C. and several westerns states since then.

Hello BC

It is really cool that you know so much of it's history and that it's been a part of your family for many years. Back in the late 70's and early 80's I worked with a guy that had one just like yours but his was brown.

Nice truck.

John

Got just shy of 1,000 miles on engine now, 500 of that was 1 day of round trip to Mt. Hood.
