Nice find on the 261. Looks like it's in pretty good shape. Are your plans to get it running and slip it into the business end and get Bruno running and drivable or go through the engine first?

@ Kevinski - I wouldn't go getting too crazy yet. LoL Yes, definitely a good score.

@ olezippi - Yes, we're wanting to take the cab off and have two small rust holes patched and then start putting him back together again. After talking to a couple of the guys in hubby's "Classic Cruisers" group I think we may swap out the rear end at some point down the road but for now I'd just like to have him running.


You can't buy happiness but you can buy a truck...and that's pretty much the same thing.

Saw this truck and thought of Bruno. Just thought I would share.
