They got the formula for this vintage hauler right. Start with a classic 1966 Chevrolet C60 truck that has earned its patina. Then add in the right elements, like a powerful V8, an A/C interior, and some proper tow equipment. Then show off its true intentions with a fully adjustable air ride suspension. The result is one of the coolest classics that has size and substance.
The C60 of this era is quite an attractive truck. It has the same tapered waistline design as the first-gen C10 but with a more imposing industrial-strength face. The cab of this truck is believed to have earned its true patina, and so that just adds to the appeal of its workman roots. And it also has all the best work-duty features like the top marker lights, tall towing mirrors, and a front bumper that's big enough to push just about anything out of its way. There are even true Alcoa 22-inch wheels. Plus, the long bed is especially cool with the weathered wood and aged steel that give it the right vibe to go with the patina. There are also practical features like a gooseneck hitch, bumper tow hitch, and mounting points to create a stake-side bed. But none of that is what attracts you to this. Instead, it's that pure hot/rat rod style that makes this one great. You see details like the side pipes and classic barrels over the dual rear wheels. And the custom frame is one display that lets the adjustable air ride suspension get low. So you can watch jaws drop to the ground as this big industrial truck lowers all the way to the ground.
The interior is a pure rat rod cool with a weathered Chevy classic with some added distinction. They did the right things like add some insulation, borrow a custom bench seat from an old build, and add a tall Lokar floor shifter for a Rat Fink kind of feel. And you can really tell the true level of thoughtfulness with the modern air ride controller on the seat and cold-blowing air conditioning.
A big truck needs a big powerhouse, and this one loves to show off its big block. The 454 cubic-inch V8 has a tidy look and a nice polished style on the Edelbrock valve covers, tall air grabber, and custom inner fenders. You have the right power upgrades with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Offenhauser intake, and headers feeding the side pipes. You also have good supporting components like the HEI distributor and an aluminum radiator with electric fans. A stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes are all about creating a package that updates this industrial hauler to make it a better cruiser.
This is that unique machine where work meets play on a commercial-grade level. You can have a lot of fun with a custom that's this unique. Call today!!!
