Seller offering a 1963 Ford 600 side dump truck with a reported 29,000 original miles. Seller says a price can be discussed upon request. One of the most unique features is the “bat wing” style hood of the N-series Ford trucks. Looks cool but we wonder how easy it is to work under the hoods. Seller says this is a rust-free truck from Colorado that was disassembled, prepped and painted in the original Glacier Blue. Seller’s maintenance has included a new aluminum radiator, ignition kit, rebuilt carburetor, fuel line and heater hoses, and 6 newer tires with full tread. Seller says the side-dump oak bed functions and the 262 heavy duty Ford engine and 4-speed manual transmission runs and drives excellent.
The N-series truck was introduced by Ford in the 1960’s and is in-between its conventional F-series and C-series cab-overs trucks. Sometimes referred to as the “flat-nose F-series” the N-series has a shorter wheelbase and cab-forward design which results in better visibility, tighter turning radius, and a longer bed than the the F-series. Produced between 1960 and 1971, the N-series underwent a design change in ’66. You can see the difference between the ’66 and ’63 in the bulge on the roof that reportedly increase the headroom for the driver. A number of different bed configurations from utility vehicle to grain trucks were made. This 1963 Ford N600 dump truck is for sale in Raymore, Missouri.
