well,, she sat since at least 97 in my yard while life went on by her,

I recently got her dragged out of the brush and been gradually working on it again.

The original wiring harness was shot,, brittle and all the insulation was dry as burnt toast,,I am in the process of adapting a 1977 Nova harness in her.
In central oregon if there are any other bolt fans out there.

Welcome! That's a nice old truck, for sure. Likely good for a number of years yet. Good luck.

Welcome to the Stovebolt. Looks like there is a lot of work left in that truck, and trucks always pay their way. Glad you didn't let it sit in the bushes any longer. The Stovebolt Gods would not be happy. smile

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Well a trip to the junkyard solved my seat dilemma,, a late model 'burb 3rd seat dropped in and matched the width perfectly for the truck. And its a light grey leather seat so it matches well!

Need to fabricate a couple bars and will be good to go!

I like the seat. It fits great. I love bench seats in old trucks too. 45nut, You are will passed the welcoming committee. You should go show your stuff in General Trucks, or Big Bolts. Lots more guys and gals will see it over in those forums. Even though I love looking at it here. ;-) Truck is looking great!!!!
