1960 Champ 1/2-Ton

The previous owner had entered this truck in a recent "Ugly Truck Contest" in Pidgeon Forge...at the Street-Rod Festival a couple years ago. If you look close at the pictures that follow, you will see why...

A 'lil bit about the truck:

I couldn't get a good picture of the left side due to that car being in the way.....

The bed and tailgate are very nice... just some surface rust... no major rust through!

Dash Engine

The dash and interior are in good condition, it even has a factory clock!  The engine runs, but has an off-idle miss, but it still moves under it's own power...it won't stop though... the brakes need alot of work!

This was the first truck I'd come across that had everything I wanted in a tow-vehicle. First off, it's V-8- I looked at several nice 1/2 tons, but they were all 6 cylinders. It is also 3 speed/overdrive. This enhances the trucks "driveability" for me.... I plan on using it as my Daily Driver. And probably the most important thing- it's a Stepside Longbed. Apologies to those with the later "Wide Box" trucks... but this bed just seems a better "fit" with an old truck.
