I bought this truck in February 2017. Tomorrow it will be back on the road.

A short bed, Fleet Side, big window with both original side trim, custom cab, deluxe heater???? Are you kidding me? WOW, very nice find. Worth some good money. Good job LugNuts.

Deluxe heater? I don't know. Maybe?
Does have windshield squirt things. Don't work though. Custom steering wheel horn ring is busted. Stainless windshield trim and sail panels look good though. Original seat.

Yes, you have the deluxe heater. If that deluxe steering wheel is an original 1963 Truck wheel, priceless. Very rare. I believe it is an original wheel. I think you hit the mother load. Do you have the push button windshield washer knob on dash? Washer pump/wiper motor? You have the truck that people want for a Barrett-Jackson show quality restore.

It may be a rare original truck but it has rust holes everywhere. Yet, I've seen worse. The windshield wiper dash piece is gone. I suppose the wiper motor under dash does have the pump but condition is unknown.
I bought it because even though it was very rusty on the surface, it's a very very straight truck. It didn't live a hard life.
The worst rust is in the DS A pillar. Big hole at the top corner of the DS A pillar. Hood is pitted but without a single dent.
The truck has character.

Excellent Job!!

I miss my old '63 LWB Fleetside. I had a lot of fun in that old truck. It didn't have all the options yours has, but it was a great first vehicle.

I hope you will enjoy your '63 as much as I did mine.
