This truck had been parked under a tree for years the first time I saw it. I told a friend I was looking for a stepside pickup and he knew about this truck. The woman who owned it was ready to sell and I bought it. But I didn't tell my wife. I know.. but I came up with a pretty good plan. The truck was pretty rough. So, I worked on it and painted it this color blue because it matches the color of a car my wife drove years ago. A car she loved. I figured if I painted it this color she may not get as upset with me for buying the truck without asking first. I also rebuilt the original straight six motor and it has a three on the tree shifter. Overall, it's a really good driving truck.
