This is my high school sweetheart being restored a second time due to carburetor backfire in 1998. I originally did a frame up on my 1953 1/2ton back in 1988. While being stripped apart I came across a 1950 5 window cab & decided to use it as I liked the driver side vent along with the wind windows. I also decided to convert it to a 4x4 using a 1966 1/2ton closed knuckle front end shortened on the left side 3.5" to match the original spring width. I also added power steering. I drove this truck alot for 10yrs before the fire struck the old girl. I decided this last December to strip her down again & do a full blown frame up again. The engine is a 350sbc with a 465 tranny & 211 rockwell transfer case. The rear diff is a 12 bolt 3.73 posi & the front is a dana 44 with 3.73 limited slip. I'm going to up grade the front again with a newer dana 44 with open knuckles & disk brakes as I upgraded the brake system to power brakes. The color of the truck is HUGGER ORANGE. I'm waiting for the cab to get done being painted as I have all the other parts back & ready to put together. I bought a totally new bed with wood & stainless hardware from MAR-K products out of oklahoma. I also bought new front & rear fenders. As of this date there are a few things still on the shopping list(grille, bumpers, splash apron & glass). Every nut & bolt has been changed out & all the original parts have been bead blasted, primed & repainted. I have posted pics on my facebook page of the whole restoration so email to get the link. I'm hoping to have her done by July so I can hit a few local carshows this late summer/fall & for some weekend cruising. This truck has been in the family since the 1960's & I plan on handing it down to my daughters to keep it going.

Thanks,

Rick Sandford

What a great story. I also understand the part about the daughter getting the truck. My youngest is getting the 37.

welcome to the bolt and good luck. We look forward to following your story so keep us posted.

Stopped by the body shop this morning to check on cab. They got it all painted but needed to buff it out. I'll be getting the cab on friday, so excited. I posted more pics on the web site for all to look at. I had left a camera with the body shop for them to take pictures during the process, that's the pics I posted.

So here it is a week before Christmas & thought by now I'd have the truck done but other things in life became center stage over the summer & fall but I will soon be on track to finish the job.
Will be posting some pics soon as I have a hole stack of them to post. Until then Merry Christmas!!!

A few months have past & I have not had much time to work on her. I was hoping to finish the truck by St.Patricks day car show in Heppner. I have had a chance to work on it this week & mounted the new tires & wheels, installed the wing window & stainless to the drivers door, worked on the brakes getting the blead out in doing so I noticed a leak between the tranny & transfer case so I'll have to reseal that. I have almost all the sheetmetal on the truck know except for the grille & hood. If the weather holds out next week I'll pull it out of the shop & take some pictures of her. I have done so much that I forgot to post alot of it on here as I was really pushing myself last year to get her done. So now it's spring & I'm puching myself again to get this truck & the 1948 1-ton done for summer so others can enjoy them as well..... Later for now, Rick

I'll get some pictures posted.

The last couple of days I got the hood put on re-checked everything under the truck to make sure I tightened & installed everything correctly. Removed transfer case, tore down, received all new seals in the mail. This weekend I'll install seals & reinstall transfer case & get the drivelines installed. Until nest time...

Well been a few months since I've been on here. I did take her for a test drive down the drive way & back. Still waiting on body shop to repaint hood as it's the wrong color. Grill still needs to put in but waiting on body shop to cut & puff the whole truck. I'm hoping in the next month or so she'll be all finished in time for St.Patricks parade & car show in Heppner. Until the next time, Keep the grind going....

Today finished putting the door glass in both doors. Rechecked all the nuts & bolts on the truck starting from the rear forward. Leveled out the cab & rear bumper. Blead the brakes, but still have some air in the system, more on that soon. Was going to take the truck last week to bodyshop but I might do it this week or next.

Hood all back together, today I'm going to start adjusting the hood & front end. Ordered a new floor mat for the inside, I have a new carpet but decided to go with the mat as I think it's a cleaner look.

Today I removed steering column to make sure that it's not the cheap CHINA repo, glad it's not. Also finished installing carpet & getting a few of the pedals reconnected, hopefully finish that all up tomorrow. Also bead blasted inner grille & dropped of to get powder coated.

Getting ready for the spring to get here. pulled the tranny & transfer case the other day. I hate oil leaks. After getting them on the bench & taking apart several of the seals & gaskets had failed. After a trip to the parts store yesterday, today will be reassemble day. Also the throw out bearing was shot(cheap bearings any more). Hope to have it back together this weekend. Sure makes it nice having a car lift & high lift transmission jack, Don't miss the days of crawling around the cold floor. Oh I also removed the bed wood & sanded them down. I put 6 coats of urethane on them, way better appearance then before. I also polished the stainless runners that hold the bed wood into place. I post pictures on Flicker account. Later fellow Bolters

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
