Re: Before and After pics

Thanks Boog, It was truly a basket case, but, my paw-in-law bought it new and I watched it for years, and every time I looked at it I thought "what a beautiful front end, and it'd make a nice little hot rod, and it's gettin' there. I'm about done.

Dig that front end treatment! Suits the truck nicely.

Not as drastic a change as most on here. Just wheels. Now need to figure out what color to paint them....

I've heard that before...

53K miles. Two family truck. Dad bought it in '84 with 28k mi after the first owner (Farmer Bill) traded it in on something new. The '69 C10 I had in high school was the one Farmer Bill traded in for the '72. See a pattern?

I bought it from Dad in '95 or so. Moved it to CA in 2001. Had some refreshing done in 2017 including the addition of power steering. Otherwise, mostly original.
