He’s finally home!
After a transportation nightmare, I was finally able to drive the truck off the trailer and I on to the uhaul car carrier to bring it home.
It fired right up and it was a bit surreal to drive one after 20 years of looking for one.
I didn’t have much time to look at everything before dark, but someone did some work to the truck judging by the shiny bolts that attach the fenders to the body as well as on the running boards.
Gauges appear to work as well other than the gas gauge. 2 out of the three cab lights work, but none of the others.
Very happy!
Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas

Andy, forgot to tell you, I am helping a young man work on his 46. It’s too bad they dropped a 350 in it. So far, just been able to help get him on the road, over the phone. He has a beautiful truck and can’t wait to see it in person.

I figure after everyone here has helped me, time for me to help someone else out. Deon has a beautiful truck. I will send more pictures when I see it. If not, he can post a few once he get a few more posts on here.

Chris
