1960 Chevrolet Truck 4x4 on 2040-cars
Evergreen, Colorado, United States
|I have owned this truck as part of my collection two years. Originally purchased for a full frame off restoration, my interests have changed a bit. Here a few details:
1960 Chevrolet 1/2 ton
235 cubic inch inline 6
4 speed manual transmission
divorced 2 speed transfer case
Selectro manual hubs
The body is in good condition. It has a lot of previous amateur body and paint work. The red/white color scheme is original, but the truck has been repainted. The frame and body are solid and free of any major rust. The original wood bed is intact and useable. Previous owner claimed it to be a native Colorado truck with 47,000 original miles. Based on overall condition, I believe it that to be an accurate claim.
The following work has been completed:
NOS sweeper seals on front axle
All synthetic fluids including differentials, transfer case, transmission and engine
Front hub and wheel bearing service
Diagnosis and repair of various electrical shorts
Cleaning and re-building of speedometer (odometer reset to 00,000)
Things needing attention:
Blower motor is not working. It has power at the switch and to the resistor.
Left windshield wiper over-extends. I think a nut has worked itself loose.
Oil pressure sending unit needs replaced. I have this part somewhere.
This truck is far from perfect. As it stands now, it is a nice, original truck you can use and enjoy without hesitation. It would make an excellent candidate for a full restoration. I am happy to discuss any details. Purchaser will be provided with original owners and service manuals; original wheels with era correct traction tires and whatever spare parts I have. It is running and driving... registered and insured. It spends its life in indoor storage. Please feel free to contact via e-mail for more information. I am entertaining all cash offers. For reference, the insured/appraised value of the truck is $15,000. Test drives are welcome as long as the weather is nice, the roads are dry and you arrive with a valid driver's license and proof of insurance. Truck is for sale locally and subject to prior sale.

The hood has the typical warp at the attachment points. This defect is not well illustrated in the photos. If I were keeping the truck, I'd get a correct 60-61 hood. I have a lead on one for the final purchaser. The aluminum wheels are from a late model Suburban and have Michelin LTX (P255-65-16) tires with about 1/4 tread remaining. The traction tires are 3/4 tread.
Please do not bid unless you intend to buy. :)

Also included with sale are a couple of NOS key blanks and original 1960 Colorado number plates. Please ask any questions about the truck before you bid.

As we continue to put together all the data for the year-end edition of By The Numbers, General Motors has announced that it sold more than a million vehicles in the US last year that achieved at least 30 miles per gallon on the highway. More impressively, GM managed this feat using multiple strategies including small vehicle size, turbocharged engines and hybrid or plug-in technologies across four brands (Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC) accounting for 13 separate models. This number will grow even more in 2013 thanks to cars like the all-electric Spark, the diesel Cruze, the range-extended Cadillac ELR and the Buick Encore compact CUV.

GM's small car sales were up 39 percent last year helping to attain this million-sales mark for 30-mpg models, and almost 40 percent of all GM sales consisted of cars with fuel-efficient I4 engines. In regards to more advanced means of improving fuel economy, GM says that it plans on having 500,000 vehicles with "some form of electrification" on the road by 2017.
Scroll down for the full list of GM's million 30+ mpg cars as well as an informative press release.
If you're burnt out on musings about the Chevrolet Corvette, you'll want to go ahead and skip this post. Motor Trend reports General Motors is hard at work on a low-cost version of the seventh-generation sports car for 2015. Rumored to be called the Corvette Coupe, the car will forgo the Stingray and skip the 450-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine in favor of a 5.3-liter V8 with under 400 ponies. If you're keeping track, that's a shade of the same engine found behind the headlights of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.

The report also suggests the Coupe will receive a number of aesthetic tweaks to separate it from the Stingray, including different front and rear fascias as well as new front fenders and a rear diffuser. Motor Trend says the point of all this is to cut the car's price tag, which means we may see a Corvette on showroom floors for less than $50,000 if this car comes to fruition.
It was 1966 when Chevrolet launched its challenger to the wildly successful Ford Mustang, the Camaro. While the competition between the two brands was already healthy, the arrival of the Camaro set off one of the most intense, model-to-model rivalries in the industry.
That competitive spirit hasn't stopped Chevy and the Camaro from wishing Ford's iconic muscle car a Happy 50th Birthday as the Ford's April 17 anniversary rolls around. These two cars have been linked over the years, and while the rivalry took a break for a few years in the 2000s, today's competition between the Camaro and Mustang is as fierce as it's ever been.
You might recall that this friendliness when it comes to major milestones isn't too rare. Ford put on quite a display for General Motors' hundredth anniversary back in 2008. As the Camaro's fiftieth birthday approaches in 2016, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Mustang sending its best wishes to its Bowtie rival.
