1960 Chevy 4 X 4 Panel Truck
Clear Title and presently Registered.
I have owned this truck for 10 years and was planning to bring it back to all it's glory. A health situation has set me and my projects back a couple years and now this one needs to go to someone with the time to do it right.
The body is sitting on a Blazer Frame and Drive Train.
Engine is 400 Small Block that runs good. Some very light start up smoke if it sits a bit. Probably valve seals ( I was going to do them when I had the nose off).
Front Disc Brakes
Brake line is broken so you cannot drive it home unless you want to patch it temporarily. I am including a complete InLine factory bent Stainless Steel Brake line Kit with the other new parts I have purchased towards the rebuild.
Side Door Handles have been shaved and door poppers installed but will need to be adjusted and rewired on rebuild.
Wire harness is from newer Chevy van and everything works but accessories like radio and interior "Mood" lighting and door poppers should be rewired.
Springs and bushings should be done. High or Low, Your Choice.
Needs one Window Regulator. (Drivers)
Frame is peeling from old paint used by previous owner and has some scaling but SOLID FRAME! Just time to clean it up right.
May need some metal work on drivers metal below floor boards. (All 1960 Chevy Pick Up Parts Fit)
I have Most Major Body Panels but some stitching in will be needed on the Hood, rear corners of the body and a Couple small spots in the interior above windshield. May need some windshield lip repair. ( I did not pull glass yet)
Windshield does have 4 rock chips but I was always able to get a sticker and they have not traveled in 10 years of summer and winter running.
Lower inner door panels may make the door repairs easier but I did not buy those yet.
Here are some of the new parts I will include:
New Side window and vent window for Passenger Side ( I already installed Drivers side)
New Never mounted Stainless Steel Headers and all Gaskets and collector Parts
New Clutch with low miles since installed
New 31 x 15 Uniroyal Tires with low miles since installed
New Body Panels:
Drivers Door Skin
Passenger Door Lower Door Skin
Front Lower Bed Section ( for the area behind Passenger Door to Rear Wheel Well)
Cab Floor Outer Section ( To repair only major Floor area)
Front Fender Lower Rear Section.
Rear Window Gaskets
Rear Tail Light Gaskets
Kick Panel Air Vent Door Gaskets
I will include all Receipts for what I have done so far and some original correspondence I have from the original owner.
I have tried to hit all the faults I can think of to represent this truck as accurately as possible.
I will answer all questions so Ask First before you Bid. Serious Buyers only Please.
Mechanical updating will be straight ahead but if you do not have the resources for the body work then this one may not be the one for you unless you are going the Rat Route.
Lots of potential here! I really did not want to let it go. Thanks for Looking and Good luck Bidding!
I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END AUCTION EARLY, AS THIS VEHICLE IS FOR SALE LOCALLY.
SHIPPING arrangements are the sole responsibility of the BUYER. I will be glad to meet your shipper and assist loading.

Quentin Tarantino fans will likely remember Vincent Vega's cherry 1964 Chevrolet Malibu Convertible in Pulp Fiction. In a movie drenched in automotive references, the Malibu is very nearly a character in and of itself, and it serves as the subject of Vega's soliloquy about the kind of man who vandalizes another's automobile. It also happened to be Tarantino's personal car when the film was shot, and was apparently stolen shortly after production wrapped. Now police have located the car some 19 years later.

As it turns out, the thieves cloned the vehicle identification number from another '64 Malibu and had the car registered under the new digits. It was then sold to an unsuspecting buyer. Police happened upon the duplicate VINs while investigating another potential theft. Right now, it's unclear whether Tarantino has taken possession of the Chevrolet, if it has remained in the possession of the fraud victim, or whether it's caught somewhere in the gears of justice. Either way, you can catch Vega's memorable thoughts on the car keying in the Pulp Fiction clip below. But consider yourself warned: the video contains explicit language as Not Safe For Work as it comes.
For the 2015-model-year, Chevrolet introduces Valet Mode for the Corvette, an enhancement to the Performance Data Recorder (PDR) already available and to your peace of mind. The PDR already captures 720p HD video with a windshield-mounted camera, records interior audio with a cabin microphone and gathers telemetry data using GPS, saving the data to an SD card in the glovebox. You can then watch your track-day antics with various information overlays on the center console screen.

Valet Mode will let you hit 'Replay' when your car gets pulled up front smelling vaguely of fricasseed clutch. Turned on by entering a four-digit code, it also locks the interior storage spaces and turns off the infotainment system. It can't be turned off until the code is re-entered. There's a press release below with more information as well as a video that explains how it works, with the obligatory dig at the 'Vette's biggest foe.
The wheel ranks right up there with the telescope and four-slice toaster in the pantheon of inventions that have moved humankind forward. But what if a circle in three dimensions had never occurred to anyone, and we all had just moved on without it? Perhaps we'd be driving around in Lucas Motors Landspeeders with anti-gravity engines. Or maybe we'd have the same cars we do today, just without wheels.
That's the thought experiment that seems to have led French photographer Renaud Marion to create his six-image series called Air Drive. The shots depict cars throughout many eras of motoring that look normal except for one thing: they have no wheels. The models used include a Jaguar XK120, Cadillac DeVille (shown above), Chevrolet El Camino and Camaro, and Mercedes-Benz SL and 300 roadsters.
Perhaps one day when our future becomes our past, you'll be able to walk the street and see with your own eyes the rust and patina of age on our nation's fleet of floating cars. Until then, Monsieur Marion's photographs will have to do.
