I tell ya this old guy has it all. Now that being said it is an OLD truck so please don't expect to drive it on the highway at 75 mikes and hour and stop on a dime, not gonna happen. If thats what you're looking for, please keep looking.
If you are looking for a great weekender, home depot assistant, coffee getter, and many thumbs up then this one is the one for you.
I did find some bondo in the drivers front fender and a bit in the backs of the rear fenders.
PAINTI started sanding the heavy coats ofprimer and this is the look I went with. You can still see sanding marks small dents and dings. In some cases i sandeddone to bare metal but decided to leave it exposed..great look. As mentioned I did find a few areasbondo, I repainted these areas andthenapplied several coats of semi clear.....Great vintage look.

This old truck is so good, I've seen a few of these and this one rocks! No question!!
Great shape, had been sitting inside for at least 15 years under 2 heavy coats of primer. As original as I've seen. All body panels look like they actually belong to this truck back in 1951...
What doesn't work / misc info
- original gas gauge - replacement added- ampgauge -replacement added
- as with most old trucks there were a few attempts in the past to install mirrors on the doors. - roof shows the most wear and tear. Obviously had some heavy surface rust from 1st owner so there was lots of rust proofing paint added by PO after he sanded it.- floor boards are ok. some holes for sure but I felt like they were good enough. - frame looks like it had coat of paint
Whats cool about it: Everything.
