More pictures of my old truck

From Andrew :

I got my old pickup truck when I was in the sixth grade. I started working on the engine with my Father, who is a mechanic.

I spent about a week in the summer sandblasting the frame and painting it.

Over the next six years, my Father and I slowly restored it from the ground up. We upgraded it to a one-ton rear end, installed Bendix brakes and a full pressure 235.

We painted the pickup ourselves in my Dad's shop. We used a red color that our local Fire Department used on their trucks.

With the painting complete, my Father along with my best friend and I, assembled the body and all the little pieces to make it roadworthy. We got it finished just in time for the last half of my senior year and senior prom.

There are still things I want to do and I am sure it will be an ongoing process but fun.

The next project on the agenda is my Dad's 1954 Chevy with Napco 4x4.
