I replaced the engine and all the systems on it, 235 out of a 1954 car, 355 gear in the rear, still three on the tree. Front disk brakes, 12 volt. Front axle sent to Nostalgic Sids stretched 4" and one leaf removed. 3" blocks in the rear to lower it. Only piece of sheet metal not original to the truck is the running board on the drivers side. Paint job I figure is at least 35yrs old. This winter Fulton Sun Visor paint the interior and roof of the cab. Next winter the rest of the truck will be painted. It sat in a basement for 28yrs before I got it 6yrs ago. NC farm truck.
It is a driver I use it. I refuse to own a trailer queen. Will be painted in a 81 corvette metallic blue or gun metal gray with a satin finish.
The bed will be done something similar to this
