Bought this truck on 2-15-12 for a whopping $1100. The guy was asking $5000 but after much negociation the final price of $1100 was the deal maker. All original from front to back(except for the seat)but got hte original as well. I started tearing out the old wiring to get ready for the new modern wiring harness. I bought a used 8' flatbed that I'll be putting on it as well. The engine is tight & runs smooth. Brakes work great as well as everything else. All the glass will be changed out. The carburetor will be changed out with a rebuilt one I have on the shelf as the float bowl is over flowing. Other then that and a qiuck buffing she'll be ready for summer fun. Here ia a link to the pictures. Thanks for looking Rick

Nice deal, and it looks to have pretty good tires on it to. The Stovebolt Gods have definitely smiled on you!

So time for a little update(pictures to follow). I tore out all the old wiring including all switches & bulbs. I intsalled a new painless wiring harness & should finish that up this weekend. Also replaced the old gauges & speedometer with a new set of Dolphin gauges makes it so much better. Seat is at the Upohlster shop getting a new make over. I purchased a 9'x7'6" flatbed for $240 that needs nothing in great shape will mount it when I finish the wiring. I ordered all new glass & seals for the hole truck cab, should be here the first of next week. Well I guess that's it for now. I'll add pictures in the next day or so. Later Rick
