So my grandpa finally decided to get rid of his truck. He mentioned just taking the "piece of junk" to the dump. I immediately stopped him, and he ended up just giving it to me for free, title and all! I am very excited about restoring this vehicle, and I knew this would be the place to come and get that help.
If you guys can give me any guidance, this is a totally new territory to me. In line 6, single cab, pre 1985...etc.
This is how she is now and I am very excited to get going on it:
Nice! It almost looks like the carpet was removed a very long time ago. I thought all the trucks had a removable panel so it could be replaced with the one needed (manual, automatic 4x4, plane automatic).
Looks like a good project. You gonna use it as a daily driver while you work on it?
Lol, no sir. Only for trips to the dump, etc.
Got a good update this weekend.
