Re: most original 60-66 truck in existence?

A friend of mine found this 1957 3/4 ton week before last in a barn and was able to buy it CHEAP! It has 14,000 original miles, still had the last oil change sticker on the windshield. Someone had painted it with a brush, the thick paint kept the body in tip-top shape!!!

Good name for it, I'm getting sick of hearing patina all the time. White was a common color in south west states, especially with trucks without air, because it reflects heat better. Notice how paint wears at different rates, especially at transition from top of fender to behind grill panel. It appears the front end clip was not painted in one shot, rather pieced together at different times or days with lighter and heavier coverage.

I'm assuming the '55-'59 forum doesn't have a "most original" thread?

Haaa I'm still learning the iPhone life. Just bought this 62 c10 today. First thing I did was taking off the utility box. Much better but I guess it is not the most original cause wheels
