I think I shall dub it Muttley. I know it may be a little obscene for this website, but I did post a warning.

I suppose some might think thats ugly, but I think it's pretty cool! Add a gun rack and a six pack and you're good to go........ok maybe some 7.50 x 16's on stock looking gray wheels

A quick question...

What running gear is underneath that orphan ?

I'm thinking that a PO put a GM frame & powertrain under it.

You've heard that saying - "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder". All my friends think my '57 is ugly as sin - I think all of their taste is in their mouth.
Looks like a good body to start with; what are you going to do with it?

Nothin' ugly about that there "Fridge"! Some folks think that all the 57-60's are ugly. That why we are orphaned, forgotten and mistreated. That's why I love them!

Close. It has a 501 Cadillac engine, th400 transmission, and sits on top of a AMC/Jeep chassis. I haven't started it yet, someone stole the distributor, carburater, battery, and probably siphoned the fuel. I am working on a lot of projects, but hopefully, sometime next week, I will try to start it. I may make a video.

I need a gun rack. That would set it off.

Body is in really good, the floors are solid, the rear passenger lower corner could use some work, and the step behind the drivers side, but I was pretty surprised by the overall condition.
The way I see it, it has three strikes against it, it is a 1960, long bed, and not too much is original. I plan on driving, and having fun with it.

I guess they just prefer the fat fenders. They should realize that a Fridge looks fat all over! LOL!

Your avatar is pretty cool. I've never heard them called a fridge, until I signed up here.
