Please decode this 60 4x4 COLOR MODEL TRANSMISSIONS AXLE

Found this near complete but very dirty and somewhat rusty old truck in the junk yard for $1000.

Thinking about getting it so I can get the 8 ft Flairside bed for a 62 4x4.
It currently has a 223 in it with a generator but I think it may have had a V8 originally as it has some AC add on stuff in the cab.

Tag is on the glove box door.
