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.
-Air Filter - Found a dead rat carcass in canister
-Cut off deformed part of muffler/end pipe
-Removed rusty bolts for spare tire holder (need to find a better setup)
-Got a new window installed on the driver side
-Went to the dump and picked up a new driver side fender (still need to find a door)
-Replaced rear taillights
-Currently on LMC for next part order...
You gonna use such a nice little truck as a scrap hauler?
If it was a long box....fine but not a lil short bed blue truck
