Not mine... but considering it's rarity, I thought I should post it here.

I'd want to look that one over pretty closely..some visible cancer - like at the intersection of the cab and bed.

My current Rampside is pretty rusty - but not there....

Yep, I saw that, too. On the other hand, this IS a loadside... very rare.

Actually... bythe pictures, the rust doesn't look too bad! That would be a nice overall restoration for someone.

I did see there are some parts missing... Like the Ramp!winking smiley

It's an even rarer Deluxe Loadside. If anyone gets the VIN (and paint and trim codes, better still), please send 'em my way.

Front air distributor duct, although that was actually changed in late '60.

The black heater controller box(instead of silver) and the belt-line paint stripe doesn't carry into the door jamb.

I wasn't aware of the early silver heater controller. Do you have a picture of one? How can you tell about the paint? - This FC was repainted.

Silver heater controller for reference on my early '61 Loadside.
If the truck was repainted,it appears as only the belt-line color was resprayed. The white paint looks to be original.
Here,you can see how the belt-line color on an early '61 continues into the door jamb.

Looks original to me. I like how the tire identification left it's mark on the paint.

Does look pretty rare (but not sure about 4500 rare). No 2 speed wiper (no washer), no chrome bumpers, no right hand arm rest. Sure it is a deluxe edition Steve?
