Greetings, Ted from Abq., NM here. Just picked up a 54 (and 1/2 I believe). Has original motor, body looks good except some holes in bottom corners of cab. Looking forward to getting it on the road. I will upload a pic once I figure out how to reduce the size of the pic from 9mb to under 5mb…

Welcome to the 'bolt. I usually email the pix to myself, as I get an option to resize them there (and maintain the original pix as is).

Another quality post.
