From Bob :
I purchased my old Task Force truck from a guy down in Eugene, Oregon who was selling it for his brother. Body-wise, it was in pretty good shape. The truck originally came from Oklahoma, so rust was at a minimum.
I have replaced corner panels and touched a few spots. Now it is ready for paint. [ View with side rails ]
I am the third owner and have all service receipts, etc. Since I got it (so for the last 20 years), the truck has been a daily driver. [ View from tailgate ]
I have added an original radio, trico fan, fog lights, bed racks. I replaced the original bed wood. I rebuilt the 235 motor, and added a three speed with overdrive. The truck even has a Moon Eyes tach.
With the single Rochester model b carb, the truck gets about 15 miles to the gallon of fuel. It cruises at 65 with the mechanical overdrive unit.
Unfortunately, the truck will probably be for sale one day as none of the kids share my appreciation for the old iron. I was in junior high when this truck was made.
