Nice looking truck. The engine looks pretty good. I bet you can get it started pretty quickly.
What are your plans for it?
As Abe said, you know the drill, more pictures.

I'd like to get it able to yard drive to haul water totes from the shop gutters to the garden area

I should be so lucky. I was never able to tell an engine would run just from looking at it. I got fooled too many times. HA!

Well I finally went and got this on Monday

Spent all morning trying to get the locked up 223 to spin. About 1:00 I had it running and sounds really nice. The dump even works!

On a double-dog dare I got the engine in my '49 to run after it had been sitting for 49 years. There's a video of it on here somewhere.

Nice work Kevin!!
