They're more likely to rust, the carb engine can be a PITA if not maintained, and their general age and application usually means they've been through the wringer a lot more than 62's.
The 40's have style and the timeless "Land Cruiser" look going for them, the 60's need an assload of work to be deemed more valuable than a newer, cleaner, more reliable, less rusty, and overall sharper truck.
They are a nightmare to restore, too.
every time i post, 30 jobs are created in nonexistent congressional districts.
tell me about it I sunk 8K into my 60 after a watercrossing that was a little deeper than expected but got brand new 2f engin (old one had 230,000K ran great except oil leaks and p/s pump as mentioned earlier) paint and body work and OME suspension. I cant wait to get it back its supposed be be done this weekend but thats about the 3rd time they told me that. Then when it gets back i have to installed the carpet, panels and seats. I'll post pics when its back!
