From Jared :

I'm a 14 years old Stovebolter living in West Fargo ND. My Dad had bought a 1961 GMC K10 in Minot, ND and after driving it, I started looking for a 1960 or 1961 Chevy or GMC because I liked the eyebrow hood.

I found this one on Craigslist and talked my parents into letting my buy it.

That weekend we went to Sioux Falls, SD to look at it. The guy we bought it from ended up having alot of other parts that he threw in. The extras included better doors and a good tailgate. He also had a box and tailgate for my Dad's GMC.

My Dad and I trailered it back home. After tearing it apart, we discovered that there is more filler than we first thought but not much rust.

The pickup is pretty solid except for the outer floor boards, but it looks as if it's hit everything but the lottery.

I bought it without an engine and I'm planning to restore it as close to original as possible ... except for a 1962 327 for the engine that we had out of an Impala. I've been visiting salvage yards and have found a lot of different parts that I was needing for reasonable prices.

Thanks,
Jared
