More pictures of my old truck
From Andy :
I found my old truck last spring in Lynden, WA. It was advertised on Craigslist, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to get it!
The gentleman I bought it from had purchased it in California as a stalled project, and brought it home with the intention of street rodding it. Well time went by and nothing got done. He lost interest in it as he already had several other cars that were finished and driving. We struck a very fair deal, and I brought it home,
The truck is currently getting the motor rebuilt as it had a rod knocking and while the engine is out, I'm cleaning stuff up and painting everything inside.
Once the engine ('54 235) is finished, it will be going back in shortly. Although the truck itself isn't yet finished, and is somewhat semi-assembled, but I will be plugging away at it, as time permits, and I hope to have it cruising around this summer.
The truck was painted and upholstered in California more than ten years ago before the original project stalled. It is a little tired looking even though it was never really used. But I like it like that, and that's the way I'm going to drive it!
