More pictures of my old truck -- here / Flickr & here / Photobucket

From Mike :

This old truck originally came from Oklahoma. A restoration was started about eight years ago. I bought the truck from my Brother who had begun to do a frame off, but then moved out of state. Ownership of the vehicle has bounced back and forth between the two of us. However, I am now the current owner.

I traded a 1977 Corvette for the bodywork and paint job. For the time being, I plan to use the original 235 and 3 speed transmission but, will most definitely convert it to a 12-volt system. I would love to upgrade it to a 350 with an automatic. As my mechanical ability progresses, someday I just might make that happen.

As you can see from the pictures in Flickr and Photobucket, I still have a long ways to go ... but I am confident it will get there.

This truck will probably just be a weekend cruiser, and I am hoping to have it up and running by summer of 2011.
