I saw this pickup sitting and rusting in the apple orchard belonging to a friend of mine. I offered to rescue it but he turned me down. He said it was his retirement project. It was about a year later, he told me that he would trade the pickup for a set of tires. I couldn't pass it up. I got it home and started take it apart. I found out that this pickup had been worked hard for years. I welded a dozen or more patch panels in place and I still have a couple more to go. During my vacation I looked her over and decided I liked the rugged over worked look so I pounded out the big dents and filled in the extra holes. I sanded and primed and painted her the color my wife picked. I stll have to work on the bed but she's running and driving just fine. I have to pump the gas peddle 20 time and then she'll start right up. It will be a few more months before I put plates on her but for now, driving around the farm is fun enough.

Congratulations and thanks for the update and pictures. The Task Force trucks are a good looking ride or worker.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

nice! Fun to drive as well, even if only around the farm!
