great Grandfather 1972 dump truck rebuild

This truck has been with the family company since 1978 i think, started as a homemade build poop truck with a tank on the back. then as things went on they needed new trucks so they took this one and another truck to make a home made dump truck. my grandparents were about to scrap the truck so i drove it home and am starting to fix it up as i play with it. Don't want this family history to go to the dump. Started it's life as a cp railway truck, then a poop truck and a dump truck to now landing in my hands. My great grandfather custom built this truck over and over again, kinda was his thing. my dad learned to drive in this truck and i help my girlfriend learn standard in it in the field with it. just need some more funding and will be putting it on the road next year in the summer. You can watch all progress of my rebuild on my youtube youtube.com/marcusschneidervlogs
or the playlist for it
