    6E5-132089 - 112 WB - for sale on Ebay, October 2016

    Listed as a '62, but serial number shows to be a very late 1961. In the process of being modified but clearly not finished.

        Bought new, or next to new here in Tucson. Used as a plumbers truck.
        Engine changed to a car full flow.
        3.73 TT rear
        runs, needs brake work and cleaning. Great start to a restore
        This T Cab is for sale. It needs to have the left floor repaired. I think the flex plate needs to be replaced and it has an intermittent knock that starts quietly then builds in volume then quiets down again. Oil Pressure is good the entire time.

        PM me if you are interested.

              6E-15924 - 122 WB - T4 cab - for sale on Craigslist, January 2017

              automatic tranny, climitizer - '60 parking light bezels and early Lark door panels.

              Craigslist info: Was originally purchased by the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power in 1961, so it's a California vehicle with no serious rust issues. 259 cu in V-8, automatic transmission. Includes camper shell. We're not sure how many miles are on it. Odometer reads 18,187, but is likely over 100K.

              Truck was towed from California to Indiana in 1996 and has been garaged since then. It hasn't been run in twenty-one years, but did back then. It will need a battery to start it, and needs to be towed.

                Hmmm, that's odd, the topper is positioned on the bed backwards. Be sure to fasten the topper down before hauling the Champ away.

                  It looks like that is a scan of a photo that might have been taken back in the 80s when the truck had been moved to Indiana. Other photos are digital, so from the present. If you think about it, with the cap on backwards, it would discourage thieves...and the owner from getting in

                    Doesn't that Bed and Shell look like a 6 1/2 Foot, 112" W/B Truck not a 122"?
                    I do not see much Bed length behind the Fender.

                      With the wheel base being 10" longer, all the length would make it forward of the fender. Guess the other thing to ask is would the highway department most likely buy short or long bed trucks - and why get the narrow bed in place of that wider P2...

                          Thanks for the information - looks like at some point, not only was the V8 added but they also put '62-'64 Champ front fenders on as well and door panels are from '62. Desirable running train, especially with the automatic.

                            So it was 6 cylinder from factory ? Whats the difference between 61-62 fenders. So it would have been a 3-speed on the column? Click image for larger version

                              With the serial number starting E5 - it indicated it left the factory with an inline six. V8s VINs start with E7. The difference with the fenders is illustrated below - the chrome kicks up similar to the way it was on the Larks for 1961. No way to know what it might have been transmission wise unless you order a production order. Six cylinders could be ordered with an automatic.

                                Patrick, are You sure that all 10" would be in front of the Fenders "and nothing in the back portion" ?
