Got the truck for the right price. Has some rust issues, but they all do. Here is my progress thus far.

Engine runs well. Going to keep it, but probably FI it.
Know nothing about the transmission. Hoping it is good.
Rear end was run dry and the vent was completely gone from the top of the housing. Lots of dirt and grit in it. Had to replace everything in it. Got it done with a little help from a HS friend who knew much more than I did about rear ends.

I am currently working on dent banging with rear fenders and rust repair. learning the art of patch panels one by one.

Working on figuring out how to post pics here.

Pics of where it had gone to die in MT. Truck originally was bought in Gillette WY, and brought to Powderville MT. Owned by same guy K lazy E Ranch (Established 1890 ish) until his death in 94. Truck sat till 2000 until it went to his grandson. Grandson got it going and beat on it a little for a couple years until it quit on him. Sat again until 2021. Grandson went into reahab, getting divorce, and his mother (One of my best friends) didn't know what to do with it. We discussed price and shipping costs and it started its journey to NH.

front clip off. There is rust, but not bad rust. Not even breaking any bolts.

Bed teardown. Some dents in the fenders which are going to be tough to get out. Little to no rust.

They don't come apart easy unless you have inspector gadget arms.

Decided to see if it would run. Scoped it cause the air cleaner was off. Changed plugs, put gas in the carb vent and it started and ran, but it would not pull fuel from a can.

had fuel pressure at the carb so I went through through the carb. Now it pulls fuel from a can, but it wont idle. I should probably just FI it.

I tried to attach video, but they are too big of a file.

Rear end, ended up being hosed. The vent was gone and it allowed who knows what into it. I found large hunks of metal, sandy sludge, and shims that had moved and were grinding themselves apart. Wheel seal or wheel cylinder was leaking, not sure which.

New set of gears, bearings throughout, wheel cylinders, and fresh brakes are on the list.
