In 1960 Chevy introduced it’s long running C/K series of trucks. Completely redesigned from the previous year, the 1960 Chevy truck featured a new frame that allowed the cab to sit lower and an innovative independent suspension that gave the 60 Chevy truck a ride much closer to that of a car than trucks in the past. One of the boldest design changes was to the front of the hood. It featured what many would come to call “eyebrows”. The eyebrows were basically mini grills on the front left and front right on the hood with parking lights in the middle of each mini grill. It’s perhaps one of the strangest and most recognizable hoods ever created.
This 1960 Chevy Apache for sale on ebay is a great example of the eyebrow design. The rest of the front of this truck has a pretty basic grill and headlight design. This particular Apache has actually been restored to great detail. I apologize for not having any more pictures but the interior, bed, paint, everything has been beautifully restored. The owner is claiming he dumped over $20,000 into the restoration and I don’t doubt it. The starting bid on ebay was at $7000 but no one had placed a bid yet and I imagine the reserve price on this truck is quite high.
When I found this 1960 Chevy truck for sale on Craigslist I couldn’t resist posting it. The picture is just ludicrous as an enticement for buyers. You can’t hardly even see the truck. I’m guessing this owner was really desperate to sell the truck, but couldn’t he have at least brushed the snow off the hood? Maybe he is trying to hide something. I’ll give him credit that the truck is located in Minnesota so it’s not likely the snow was going to melt anytime soon. It was listed for $3200 and comes with new doors and free snow.
The 1960 Chevy pickup is great old truck and one that would definitely get noticed when out on the town. I don’t know why but I have an image in my head of taking it to the ice cream parlor. Do those even exist anymore? Just keep in mind that these trucks will take maintenance as all old trucks do and 1960 Chevy truck parts aren’t just lying about so improvising is important. I snow packed friend in Minnesota was actually on a 79 Blazer frame.
