I have been working on my own vehicles since I was a kid. I have always had an imagination, allowing me to think outside the box and make things my own, via customization, with little to no money. This truck has helped me learn many new skill sets with fabrication and welding.
Saw it on the road by my house as I was on my way to rent a truck to go to the lumber yard.
I couldn’t work in the computer generation and always had an interest in older trucks. My Pop shared the same interest. He is the one who told me that this was the truck for us to work on. He will be 80 this year and still loves to help me work on the “Ol’ Girl”
Bought it in CA on New Year’s Day 2004. Had it shipped to UK and then to Northern Ireland.
My brother in law purchase it 1966 for $200.
I bought it in 1988 for $600
I am just about finished with this build and just in need of some cosmetic stuff as far as gauges and carpet. I plan on attending car shows this year and put this truck to use.
Cooper is 15 years old. He loves cars/trucks from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. He’s not scared to get his hands dirty.
I’ve been building cars and trucks since I was old enough to drive. They aren’t perfect, but I build them with my own two hands from the ground up.
The original paint still shines nicely, showing just a bit of patina in a couple places. The interior is still all original: door panels, seat upholstery, headliner, dash and paint all nicely preserved.
I have enjoyed working on this pick up and changed my mind many times on how to build it.
