Nice Clean Stock Restoration.
Just curious, what did you use for the interior rear cardboard side panels?
The panels behind the wood cargo tie down braces and vertical side ribs.

Did the truck originally come with a cardboard ceiling with metal seam strips from seats to the rear doors?

The panels on the side and roof, since no one makes the stock ones I went to my upholsterer and purchased sheets of thick cardboard they use for headliners and the such. The roof panels originally just went to the back of seats which I ordered of line, but I liked the look so much I made more panels from the same material on the sides. I purchased the metal bows on line. That was a real pain in the butt.
Also I primed and painted them with the stock paint as the dash is.

It's stock except for roof panels but I live in Wyoming so I insulated above panels to help hold heat. This was my first restoration, I learned a lot

Ahh.... just up the road a piece.
What did you do for wheels and tires? I like the way yours look. I'm still trying to find a solution that doesn't need spacers but not there yet.
Best regards,
Les

That's a beautiful truck; bringing it back to original is a big job. The interior work is especially well-done. It's interesting actually how llittle the interior design of these panels changed over the years--much like my 38. Your seats are really sharp. Great job!

Excellent job on the truck. It looks fantastic. I love the way the passenger seat folds up. It looks like it provides much better access to the back of the vehicle than the seat in my 58 Burb does. You have to contort yourself to get in and out of the back of mine. Looks like yours will be much easier to climb over/past.


Thanks

Larry
