1963 Chevrolet Other Pickups CustomOld Chevy dually dump with newer drive train. 6.2L or 6.5L non-turbo GM diesel, 4-speed manual transmission, & newer rear end with 4.10 gears, I believe.
Runs great. Very good fuel economy.
Driver side body damage to fender, door, mirror, cab corner, and bed as shown in photos.
Odometer shows less than 5,000 miles. Not sure what actual miles are.
I bought the truck on Ebay back in May out of Iowa (item #292135640212, original listing description below). I was actually the second high bidder and paid about $4500. I can email screenshots to prove this, but I'm not going to post them. I actually picked it up in June on my way back from the Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers show in Des Moines. I drove it 200 miles or so home while my girlfriend followed in the Beetle. Speedometer reads a little slow (reads 55 when you're doing 60). I was told that the swap was done by a diesel mechanic who also built tractor pullers. He was supposedly an expert on these GM diesels and especially their injection pumps. Based on how the truck runs, I believe it. I have another vehicle with a 6.2L diesel (1982 C30 with 18' Hodges style ramp bed I would entertain selling), which also runs well, but this one just seems snappier and I think it makes better mileage.
Since I've had the truck I've honestly only run about a tank of fuel through it. I replaced the radiator because the old one leaked where someone welded a fitting onto it for the heater hose return (ran lots of water through the engine coolant system before filling it with new coolant). I have a 'T' fitting I was going to run the heater return into the upper radiator hose. I also replaced one of the rear brake wheel cylinders, and the seller told me he had replaced the master cylinder, if I remember correctly.
It only has one battery, and I usually have to jump start it because the battery is weak. With a fully charged battery, it actually starts pretty quickly (after cycling the glow plugs).
The one time I really 'used' it, I hauled some siding I tore off my house to the dump and was run into by a 14-year old who must have been using his phone or something (I was half in the ditch and almost stopped trying to avoid him when the collision occurred). Maybe I should have filled the tank for the air horn before that trip.
Dump bed works okay, but the handle to pull the control valve is out the rear of the bed (could be moved without too much trouble), and it settles fairly quickly (not sure if it's the cylinders of valve).
Forks, chains, auger, etc that are on the bed in the photos are not included in the sale.
I don't have to sell it, but I'm just too busy to do anything with it and I don't have anywhere convenient to keep it inside over the winter, so here it goes. I'm not posting my phone number on here, so please send a message with your questions. Please don't just tell me you want to call, because I've shared most of the information I have about it and will likely have to research any info not already included, which is easier if you send your actual questions.
