Today’s new trucks lack character. Too much plastic, and too many curvy lines. Trucks from the ’60’s however… They exude “cool”. Like this one, a 1966 Chevy 1-Ton Six-Pack long box.
I’ve always liked the styling of the first-generation Chevy C/K trucks, but the not so much the six-pack or four-door variants; they always seemed a bit ungainly looking, with the rear doors sharing the lines of the front door, which left an overly large B-pillar. But that looks much more at home on this truck, with its longer bed and larger wheels.
It’s for sale right now, in Woodbury, CT, for the low, low price of $55,000. I’ll bet the thing didn’t even cost $5,000 when new, but age plus rarity plus the work that’s gone into restoring it justify the price. Whether anyone will actually pay that much for it remains to be seen. But still, that is one killer looking truck! The only thing I’d want to change though is the engine; a 6.9L Cummins turbo-diesel would make it absolutely perfect!
