I have owned many trucks in my life but this was the first vintage one. My wife actually found it while we were out doing yard sales. The original owner restored it for his son but he wasn't into old trucks so he sold to the man I bought it from. I have done numerous upgrades, brakes, exhaust etc. It has a 283 with a 4 speed. Runs well and I have taken it on many long trips. A few years ago I got "Shorty" to paint the doors. She is a great old school artist and did a fine job. I wish I could post some pics but being new I'm having all kinds of trouble.
