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
Thanks gentlemen. Yeah the tires are in good shape too, but I will probably change the front ones out just to be safe.... I'll keepp you all posted on progress. As for any more good deals you never know what's around until you start digging......lol
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
Today I finished welding the exhaust pipe & installing it. Also install new muffler. Finished painting the inside of cab. I installed new glass in the door window channels, will in stall them tomorrow. I will also start putting the interior back together in the next few days. More to come.......
