Hey guys. I am new member to the forum, and have found good info here for projects I've done in the past. I'm hoping someone can help me identify this new to me truck. I drive a ten wheeler Pete for a living and last week on a job I noticed this old Chevrolet dump. The guy was going to scrap it as it had been left on the property since 1995. I trailered it home. I like it. I can't find out just what year and model it is. Has a big 6. Fired up after working on it today.
Sounded like the crank was broke. Shut it down. Realized that the crank pulley was loose. Pulled it off and pulled the woodruff key and fired it up again. Ran like a champ with good oil pressure. Maybe the guy who owned it back in 1995 (last reg) figured the crank had broke and walked away. The rats had a fine time in there past few years. I'm going to post a pic of the truck and also the id tag. Maybe one of you guys can tell what year and what GVWR this might be. I'd sure appreciate it. Thanks.
Hope the pics load. Serial # OC6330103426

That looks like 1960 two wheel drive 2 ton cab and chassis built in Oakland 3425th off the line to me.

0= 1960
C= 2wd conventional cab
6= 2 ton
3= ? perhaps wheelbase
3= Cab and chassis
O= Oakland
The rest is the build number starting at 100001.

Hey, thanks so much for that info. I really appreciate it. I worked on it today, and put in a new woodruff key. The crankshaft keyway is still intact. A friend told me the harmonic balancer/pulley has a sleeve on it. A jiffy sleeve I think? The pulley still has some play so I must make a repair.
I believe this was a friction fit originally. Do you guys think I should drill and tap the crankshaft? Should I look for a good used pulley assembly? This crank was never tapped for a bolt. My old Pontiacs (1957/1952) have a bolt to secure the pulley.
Would appreciate input on this. Looks like the way to go. I will be watching the site for the best advice. A lot of knowledge here. Thanks.

The "3" in question is in fact the wheelbase...157".

The other thing I would add is that by 1960 calling trucks 1-1/2 or 2-ton rated was being phased out as GVW ratings for any given series could differ by thousands of pounds based on what tires and suspension got installed, so in this case the "6" would be the Series identifier (60 Series).

Forgot to say Welcome to the Bolt wave

Also forgot to say your GVW could be between 15,000 and 22,000 pounds.

Is that a 1960 hood? The grille looks like it, but the hood looks newer. Maybe transplanted at some point?

It has, as you may know, a 62 ~ 66 hood.
