Is there another version of stock guage cluster that has guages instead of idiot lights? And the inside roof repair,I haven't found any patch panels for that, do you guys know of any source for those, or am I going to have to cut up a donor?

General Purpose
63 is idiot lights. They are more practical than gauges. Unless you are a gauge watcher. Which I am not. Idiot lights come on at start to verify bulb, then go off. If you go gauges you will probably have to change senders. I think the various clusters physically fit 60-66.

Don't see an inner upper patch for 63. Start looking for a donor or use the cutout for a template. Can be made of several hand made pieces. Might save scrap that way.
Provide good clear pics of that area of you want suggestions on fix. There are some pretty good metalmen on here.

I have seen cut ups on ebay. Saw the panel recently on ebay in fact.

General Purpose
I would be tempted to modify the 64-66 patch panel if it wasn't so expensive. 60-63 has the wrap around windshield. 64-66 has the flat windshield. If a looked carefully at both trucks, I could decide if the available patch could work.

Called home and got the vin # and it is definitely a 62' k20 and the fifth number is a 3 indicating that it was built and sold as a cab and chassis. I'm grateful that the guy I bought it from found such a nice bed for it.

They came either way, will fit from '60 - '63.

As JoeK stated has '62 emblems & grill.

That's an easy mixup. Because 60-63 all had the upside down wing windows, and the windshield to match. So it's easy to think all the changes were then (at '63). smile

For sure, any 60-66 door, or door "patch" panel will work exactly the same. Easy to find pretty much everywhere.

Good find!
