Hi guys, here's my latest project, a 60 Chevy C60 based on the AMT pick up truck. You don't see me very often in this category, it's my first truck since 30 years...

Well it starts life as White chassis which I shortened. I modified the front suspension as the Chevy has independant ones, so I adapted the one from the pick up to the truck chassis. The wheels and tires are from a IMC/Lindberg Dodge, the fuel tank is scratchbuilt, the 348 engine came from an AMT 59 CHevy, I modified it to simple carb manifold and air filter.

For the cab, I enlarged the front fenders, scratchbuild the front grill, interior is stock, well hope you'll enjoy it !!!

Very cool, and great job. I have plans on building a bunch of medium duty trucks like this using pickup kits. I had started one using the 57 Chevy Cameo.Again, great job!

Very nice conversion! Everything looks spot on. I have a question...why the big hole in the top of tranny? Was it a fitment issue?

Thanks for the nice comments, for the tranny, I had to cut it a little bit 'cause I couldn't put the cab straight to the chassis :)

Very cool!!! Now, maybe a 27' pup or a similar length tanker trailer? There aren't enough of these medium duty trucks in our scale world... I love this!

I agree, when done to this level, they are every bit as impressive as a big truck. Well done.

This is the perfect truck to hitch up to the car hauler trailer, full of brand new 1960 chevy's. I can see it loaded with a few Impalas, Bel Airs..

There are still quite a few of these in my area- mostly straight trucks used by farmers for transporting crops at harvest time. None of them are this nice, though! Great job on this one.
