    This post is more for Ace, since he posted awhile ago about Crew Cabs.

    I found these in my truck pic collection and figured I would share.

    Cool, had no idea they were made that far back.

    Slammed isn't my thing. I really dig the newer lifted stuff after seeing a few oldies up close :cool:
    The rear bench space is about the same as the modern day extended cabs.

    I'm actually holding off though now to see how bad fuel prices get in 2012.
    I have a bad feeling since it hovered around high $3.70 even in Winter here.

    I want an older Suburban or Panel Truck from the 60's. With an LS swap of course, and lifted a bit, probably just like a 4" lift, maybe 35" tires tops.

    If I did a swap, it would be with a salvage pull modern Duramax/Allison. :bowtie:

    If I could score one of those classics cheap with 4x4 and in pristine condition I'd do it.
    I'd have to look down south though, nothing up North.

    Paint and body can kill your wallet.....

    The mid 60s crew cabs are really cool, but are pretty hard to find. They were built primarily for the railroads, utility companies, and the forestry service. Finding one in 4WD is even more difficult. Not impossible, but be prepared to fork out the bucks if you find one.

    A Duramax/Allison version would be awesome.

    To see more of these, check out:
    www.67-72chevytrucks.com click on the 60-66 forum. I have been building Chevy trucks for years, and I'm on that site all the time.

    I actually bought a 68 C20 LWB step side, We are looking for a 03 up RCLB duramax 2500hd roll over to put the 68 in its chassis. I'm building it for my wife. LOL.

    Planing on a small lift and 40"s.

    3500.00. Its very solid, but needs to be converted to 4x4. You won't find any factory 4x4 pre 66s. All the 4x4s were Napco or other companies converted to 4x4.

    Weren't the crew cabs stanard cab trucks built by Chevy, and then sent out somewhere to be stretched, like a limo, or were they done at the factory?

    I would LOVE to build a diesel'ed C10.


    PICS PICS PICS.


    I would love to keep my 68, but I don't see that happening. If I was going to start yet another project, it would have to have the bodywork done. I've got too many irons in the fire that need paint, etc.
