I found this 1960 while I was on the way to look at a ratted out 1958. It was just sitting right across the street in a garage parking lot with a little faded hand made for sale sign on it. Turns out an older gentleman drove it there 3 years ago to get the steering box fixed and didnít want to pay the price of the repair. He then decided to leave it sit and not put any more money into it. I went over it and its pretty solid besides the inner steps and a small spot on the floor board. All the usual areas that rust out seem to be solid. I almost thought it was too good to be true. Itís a 292 3spd and I'm not sure if it runs, guy said it did 3 years ago when he drove it there. I asked what he wanted for the truck, I had to ask again when he told me to make sure I heard him right. He wanted under a 1k so at that point I didn't care if the motor ran or not, this is a solid truck and the interior and all glass are good. The driver's window does have a small crack in it though. It has a flat tire and some surface rust but is a diamond in the rough to me. Here is a pic of it. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions as I tear down and build back up.

Great truck, great price to get in at. I hope you get the deal finalized very soon before it gets away! Is that a rear bumper sticking out there?

Nice find and nice truck. Other than the driver's side mirror, the truck appears very original. What are the long term plans for the project?

I'll have to wait until Monday to get more pics, the man is heading out of town this weekend and will not be back until then. That's when I'm getting the truck from him. I plan on frame off restoring it but will most likely make a street rod out of it. No hack job, I'd like to drop it some and maybe do the CV ifs. Rebuild the 292 or swap it out for another. Most likely swap it out. I have a 351w and a 302 from a previous mustang that could go in it if I figure out a way to pair it up with another manual trans in these trucks. That's all way down the road though, I'm sure I'll change my mind after doing some research. I'm just still amazed at how solid this truck is. I'll post more pics as soon as I can.

Well I paid the man and got the title and keys today at lunch. I will be picking it up this Sat. when I'm off. Here are a few pics. The only vin I have is on the title. 710C0A21234. Looks like a 292 built in atlanta and color is raven black. I would like to know gear ratio and trans, I know its a 3spd and thats all.

That looks like a really straight body and it doesn't even need paint
