Brought my 59 home today

I was finally able to load up my 59 Apache and haul it home today. My father in law restored it about 15 years ago, he has put less than 200 miles on it since then. He would occasionally start it up and drive it around the yard but even this hasn't been done for a few years. I have been helping take care of some things for him over the past few months and he surprised me with the truck!
I charged the battery yesterday but couldn't get it to start, it would run if I poured a little fuel in the carburetor but wouldn't stay running. I took the fuel line loose at the carb and nothing is coming out, I ordered a new fuel pump today so hopefully will have it running soon.
My plan for now is to get it running and add some seat belts so my 12 year old son can ride with me. here are a few pics, it definitely needs a bath!
