From Scott :

           As we were driving by this truck in "poe dunk nowhere" Farmington, California on Memorial Day 2007, my wife says, "Aren't you going to stop and see how much it is?" What a woman!

           I do body and paint work for a living. At 43 years of age, tho, I have never owned a vehicle that I really wanted. The only time that I have had to work on one of these has been when it was broken. I have six kids you see. All from that same great woman. The oldest is 17 and the youngest is 5. So, if she thinks it's time to build a truck then, IT IS! I've been wanting a cool project car for 20 years. What a woman!

          The truck has no motor but looks to be totally stock with the original Saganaw 3-speed. The clutch, pressure plate and flywheel were on the floor inside. It just needs some go-go, some brakes, and some wiring to get her on the road ... oh, and some tires. Here's the view from the rear.

          I don't know any history on the truck. I bought from some guy that had it in his front yard for about five years. It was right were his friend parked it before he was shot and killed. I bought it with no title.

           When I bought it, the guy told me that I was a 1965. It had no grille but had a 1965 hood, laying around. After getting it home and running the VIN, I find that it's a 1960. Oh well. Kinda bummed but I'll make do. Hope I can put a '65 hood on a '60!

           So, this will be the first of many that I will build. That's the plan any how.
