New to me 60

  • 47
  • murf
I purchased a 1985 60 series that has 167K on it from the original owner from P.V.

I love the 4 spd trans and the old school manual choke too :)

He has too many cars and didnt want to spend anymore $$ on it. It was running way rich, power steering leak too, door handle broken, and a few other minor issues.

She is an ugly duckling but with some TLC and some help from other CSC'rs with parts I can give her a new life and make her good for another 15++ years. The body is rough but the record keeping (which I received just recently) and maintenance was phenomenal. There are no leaks except a power steering hose under this truck!

Replaced within the last 40K miles:

Clutch, rear main, ps pump rebuild, starter, radiator, alternator, wheel bearings repacked, f&r brakes, trunions /axle resealed and packed, all drivelines fluids changed, etc. A good base to work from.

No, there will be no body work on this rig (believe it!) except buffing some oxidized paint where there aren't dents (both sides - his kids took it out several times :rolleyes:). The focus will be on mechanically being in good working order and leaving the body as is.

Chk out the 6 point roll bar the PO installed :eek:
More pics please...:)
 
Cool! A lifted, mildly built 60 is still my favorite "looking" 4x4. There is just something classic about the lines.

Typos sent from my HTC EVO using the IH8MUD app...
 
Very nice find Murf. Was the stereo original too?
 
Candy-ass red. I think we're seeing a trend here.;p
 
...and the old school manual choke too.
for today's generation of thugs and tweakers, that's also known as 1985 theft deterent (but only on cold days). :lol: Combine that with "Where the hell is Reverse?!?!" and you should be golden...
 
Hey Murf, if you get a chance, stop by or I could stop by and take a closer look.

Loves it! :cheers:
 
Got it to pass emissions with flying colors just the other day. :clap:

...Found hatch strut / bolt replacements through Reid supply off of the 60 FAQ's.

Nice on emissions! Mine went through with a breeze after I put on a new cat. :)

The hatch struts I just changed out required cutting the bolts from the toyos. Stabilus from O'reilly. It was about fifty bucks.
