Hey guys, I just joined the forum because I got myself this project truck and I thought I might post progress pics and pick your brains once in a while. I think everything is original on it except for the bed which came from a donor because it used to have a flatbed on it. I plan on keeping it mostly original, but I've already scrapped the generator and put an alternator on it. I'm also going to upgrade the brakes by installing a booster with two reservoirs in the master cyl. Other than that, I'm just gonna make it perdy, but it's gonna need at least one door and floors and rockers on both sides. Also discovered that the cab roof is rotted inside right above the windshield. I've been a mechanic long enough to know better, but I still say I'm going to enjoy every minute.

The grill and 20 emblems suggest your truck is a 1962

Thanks, I'm pretty sure the 283 is original, and I thought I had seen a placard somewhere with the model year 1963. I'll have to verify that when I get home a week and a half from now. But indeed, the grill and the hyd. clutch have me wondering, I didn't know about the emblems....

Welcome! It doesn't matter if it's all original, you have a gem in your possession. Nice find. The hood isn't stock to that year, but again, it doesn't matter, it is technically period correct.

Hood is correct for '62 - '66. '60 & '61 used different hood.
As JoeK stated has '62 emblems & grill.

Yeah, I was mistaken, I thought it was '60 - '63.
