1960 59? Super Duty on the brain

So over the weekend was out on an errand and took a couple wrong turns on purpose and found a few old trucks!
ya I know it's dangerous for me to leave the house alone without a strict travel plan, destination time and route...

found some typical 48-52 F-1's 2's 3's an F6.. boring stuff...
but then I happen on to a 1960 Super Duty , may have been a 59?? I didn't get real close to it. Anyway I have always loved those years "Super Duty" trucks, They are so Awesome!
Anyway I was starting to look up the owners names so I could make contact to see if it was available to buy... what am I thinking. What would I do with one of those beast's? besides I already have more big trucks than I should but I just can't help it... Maybe I need a vacation or some help...
I didn't get any pictures but looks like this one just for reference.

I haven't been on this forum for a little while, how many 60 Super Duty Owners do we have here? feel free to post up pictures. I would love to see them to help ease my mind.

1960's have a two piece grille. Upper chrome or painted, lower chrome or painted is a checker board aka egg crate design,

is this only for the super duty of these years or the regular trucks too? I thought the yellow one above was a 60? but I dont see the two part grill?
I also was under the impression that the 1960 super duty had the same grill as the 59?
there does not seem to be very much info on these beasts or many of them around.
thanks
Josh

You are correct Josh, the ND likes to speak in half truths. The 1960 F 700 thru F 1100's used the 59 grille. Lighter F100 thru F 600's used the new '60 2 piece grill. There is info out there, I recommend you purchase the bible "FORD TRUCKS SINCE 1905" by James Wagner, Ford Engineer.

I'm building a 60 super duty. Yes the 59 and 60 use the 59 grille, but only 60s have the super duty written on the hood. You can source the super duty script from the later trucks.

Checked the books, another change for 1960 was the use of a new Ford crest emblem on center of the hood. The '59 used a different style crest.Don't get your info on these trucks from Flicker comments!Click the image to open in full size.

So, here's one I'm working on obtaining presently. What do I have here?
It has the SD hood scoop, and saddle tanks, but no holes in the hood where the SD script would be. 59?

Remember that 'Super Duty' refers to the engine (401, 477, or 534), not the truck model. F-700 through F-800's would look the same, but would not have the 'Super Duty' script and use the old Lincoln Y-block engine.

Thanks for the reply....that explains alot. Would the Lincoln engined trucks
have the hood scoop? My '60 F-750 does not, but this single axle semi does.

Thats a nice looking truck.

Keep us posted on it and pictures of it coming home.

I still havent gone to see the super duty I found. I did talk to the owners son on the phone and sounds like it could be for sale.. hopefully in the next few weeks I'll get that way to see it closer and get some pictures to post.
Not sure what I would do with one of those beasts if I had one though. They sure are cool to look at though!

Super Duty's come in various configurations, but this T 950 ( tandem) was the top of the food chain in '59. The 401 477 534 indentification was on the side hood emblem. Unfortunately, these were sold in very low numbers and are very hard to find today. This was a turn key drive away truck when sold at auction in the mid 80's.Wish I had the room for this long wheel base electric power pole hauler then.Click the image to open in full size.
