The list of needs
-Steering box needs to be adjusted for free play. Not bad or it would have been done already
-Paint engine block and add new dress up kit for the motor if you choose. I like it looking like a barn find.
-Some rust on cab corners and front fenders. In my opinionthe repair would kill the look.-Kicking around theidea or vintage amber fog lights (wired with a switch already) and a new chrome grill
This truck was built to be driven and left outside. People can sit on the fenders and basketballs can bounce into it with no worries. The most fun I have had in a classic including my current 55' Bel Air pro touring and the last 33 cars I have owned. Everyone loves this truck and its about as maintenance free as you can get. Fill the tank, change the oil and enjoy!
