    Remember, this does not have to only be a truck you own - could be one you know of or one that is for sale you saw somewhere - just want to see how many we can come up with. Can include any trucks that are "field flowers" or ones that were parted out years ago - just curious as to what is out there.

    If you need me to host your photos - just email them to champs@zoho.com - and put VIN and name so I know who you are.

    7E5-122
    E5-134662
    T-4 standard trim

    For sale on E-bay, August, 2014.

    Information from auction:

    "My dad bought this truck around 1989 with 18,000 miles on it from a Mr. Paul White. According to Paul, the original owner died about a year after he bought the truck new. The truck then sat in his wife's garage for about 10 years and then another 10 years in their son's garage. Mr. White bought the truck at that time and added an overdrive transmission that is operated by a toggle switch, and repainted the exterior.

    After my dads passing my mother sold the truck to a family friend Gerry. Shortly after that, the main bearings went out and Gerry put new bearings and rings in a low milage 1964 motor. At Gerry's recent passing, that motor had not installed. I have since installed the 1964 motor and it runs/drives well.

    The truck has minor rust in the lower front fenders and the bottom side of the tailgate. While it looks nice, it could use a repaint. The milage shown is correct for the truck, but not for the 1964 motor."

    Current location is Newberry, Florida

      Nice T 4 and A/C in a SIX to boot. How about showing YOUR '62 T 6 to inspire others?

        62Champ,
        Is there a particular reason for limiting this registry to just one model year? The Champ truck line was around from 1960 to 1964 and no that many of them produced. Just curious.

          Because I am trying to make thread navigation easier by posting links to serial numbers on the first post, I am trying to keep the view a little more focused. There were 7325 T-cabs produced for the '62 model year - so I am optimistic that there will be a number of entries.

          Nothing to stop anyone else for starting another thread that would broaden the focus or select a specific year. If there are only a few replies with info in a couple months, I could always pop it out to include a broader scope. Would invite anyone who has a specific interest to start similar threads - could be fun to see what turns up.

            I have two '62s. One is the famous Mr. Ed and the other is poor old Pick-it the parts truck.
            Picket is a 7E5
            Ed is a 7E7 originally had a nice 289 that spun its crank. Now has a 259.

            Here's a picture of Poor Old Pick-it:


            And here's a shot of Ed:


            There's another of Ed sporting Pick-it's hood on my sig. line.

                  Interesting. Saw an 8E one ton that was ordered cab and chassis to have a camper built on it. Along with all the accessories, it had the partial flow filter as well as the full flow - came out of the Texas Panhandle, so maybe they were thinking about dust protection...

                    ?Well... being that they're over sixty miles away at present... not now. However I can try to post them when I next get back to Fawn Lodge.

                      This is Buck. I bought it a few weeks ago out of Jacksonville Fla.I'll try to get the #'s off of it tomorrow.

                      Got the serial#. Badly worn but as near as I can tell it's:E5-132068.Appears to have no diget before the E. model:6T-112.Does that mean it's a 61 instead of 62?

                          7.50/16. But I took those off and put them on a Military trailer.

                            Are you accumulating this information in to a spread sheet that will be available as a registry that can be linked to the SDC home page?
