More pictures of my old truck

From Anton :

I just returned stateside to Washington State after being stationed on Guam for three years (active Navy). Once I got to Seattle, I decided to buy a house and thought I would need a truck to help with any remodeling.

I've got a 2009 Jeep Wrangler two door, a 1955 Cadillac and an 2001 Ducati - nothing that can haul plywood or fence posts. I figured that if I was going to get a pickup, I should at least get a classy one. So I searched the web for a bit and fell in love with the Advance Design styling.

I found this 1951 6500 sitting in Burlington, Washington for $1650. The cab was brush painted in three different colors, but at least there wasn't a whole lot of rot and rust. The engine also started up after a few tries.

This big old truck has a dump bed that I think I'm going to dump. Pun intended. Or maybe just set aside for the time being. I'll do the body work and paint myself. I'll get her up to a 12 volt system and build the flat bed with some wood milled off my Godfather's farm.

I want it have a few amenities like a classic parts AM/FM radio, but otherwise look stock. Color scheme will also be custom in commemoration of my late Grandfather's dairy farm.
