I purchased last summer for my 16 year old son for his first truck. He has driven this truck almost daily for over a year and he has put a lot of work into the bed and body (front quarter panel, bed, minor dent in rear & front left panel and paint).

 

Here is the story on the truck prior to my purchase. I bought this truck from a guy who races stock cars and is an excellent mechanic. He bought it form the original owners’ family as a project and eventually ran out of room in his shop for the truck. Lucky me, I know. He purchased the truck from his friend who’s grandfather was the original owner. The grandfather had this truck and many years ago went to get bread and milk at the store and ended up 4 hours from home lost. Grandpa was diagnosed with dementia and went to a home. The family pulled the truck into the old barn behind grandpas house and there it sat for years and years. Upon grandpas death, he (the guy I bought it from) inquired about the truck and his friend said it was probably still in the barn, and it was. Tires ruined, gas tank rusted out, tools leaning up against the side, buckets and tools left in the bed, etc. His project to restore this great truck was underway. He had put over $1,600 into the truck to get it into fine mechanical shape (including needed engine and mechanical repairs, Racing Fuel Cell, exhaust system, tires and rims, etc). He did not do anything with the body work as he “liked the character”. I am not sure how long he had the truck before I stumbled upon it, but it has “ran like a top” since I have had it.

 

You will not find too many trucks with this mileage and in this condition, especially in the Midwest. It is a real prize and frankly I am not excited to part ways with it. I am already regretting “giving” this truck to my son….sigh.
