I am acquiring a 1959 Chevy C60 Viking, complete, running, and only 94,000 miles. This barn fresh (since1972 only1-2 years of daylight by last owner).

Obviously, there is a problem....Kingpin on drivers side is worn in the axle, not the spindle. I have tried to research what kingpin would be correct but cannot find one that measures the actual size..cannot find a number on the axle... The kingpin measures 1.110" x 7.5" long. All the manuals that I have seen have nothing like this. Can anyone shed light on this problem.

I would check the mileage, maybe its missing some numbers? I would also try a Chevy truck forum for that specific info, I just seen a 1959 C60 for sale on CL in running condition with less miles http://kansascity.craigslist.org/cto/3987200374.html

The mileage is actual...I have known the truck since new...I have researched the kingpins and cannot find a pin with same dimensions. I cannot find bushings either. It appears to be a one of a kind! I spoke to a machine shop about making one for me. They have not returned the quote yet.
