Welcome to the 'bolt. Personally, I wouldn't "hot rod" it... however, a big block chevy might slide right into that engine compartment. But, then its time to upgrade the brakes, suspension ect ect.


Another quality post.

Now that I've done a little research I'm confused. It looks as though the 1960 should have pedals coming up through the floor. This one has them hanging from under the dash. Any ideas?

Please use the garage forums for questions. You will get better and faster answers. Your original post was moved here because it was more of an introduction to your truck. Browse around the different forums and post your questions in the appropriate spot. Jump in with both feet, I promise you won’t drown.

Thank you for the direction. Takes a little time to figure out protocols. Forgive me.

mchaloux has been posting some in the 60-66 forum.

It'll help our *newbie* if this forum is just for welcome chat wave and Bolters can follow him in the other forums, as he "get around" a little.

If you all hang out in here too much, we'll run out of donuts!! grin

I want to welcome you too, albeit a little late.

My suggestion would be to resurrect it (not to show quality - a survivor/driver) and enjoy it for a while before doing any major changes.

I suspect you'll get more interest out of the grandkids by taking them for rides. drive

Cheers, Dean

Per Peggy’s request, we'll stop answering technical questions in the Welcome Center. The OP has figured out how to navigate the site so we'll be sure to direct his questions to the appropriate Garage Forum. Most of his technical questions are being answered in the 60-66 forum! thumbs_up

The truck has been sold complete to a local Canadian. Thank you everyone for the input. I have learned so much here. Hopefully I'll be able to post up some pics once it's done. All the best to you all.
