"new" fender had to be patched. I will play with the patina on the fender but we sprayed several different paint colors on it. Still have to replace the grille surround, grille, bumper, headlights, upper and lower control arms (ball joints, bushings). Had the "massage" the hood and driver's door. Waiting on spindle and rotor.

Looks like you already have a jumpstart on gettin' her on the road again. Did ins. co. settle w/you already? They must be a good co. if they did settle that quickly!

Glad you are OK. That bump-up is gonna need someone like you to even start on it. You surely have a good attitude to begin her resurrection so soon!

Hope the rebuild goes smoothly for you.

Thanks Sam. I got a check from Hagerty 10 days after the accident. Its only the initial check because the truck was not torn apart to see any real damage. I had Hagerty, he had Progressive. His insurance company took full responsibility but I used by insurance and will let Hagerty deal with Progressive.

Thank you for the kinds words from everyone. I should have it all back together this weekend then will need an alignment.

This is what it looks like today. Suspension parts have been replaced. Just need to replace body panels and do a faux patina on the grille surround and fender.

I'm glad to see and hear that the damage was not too difficult to fix. This would have been so much worse for both you and the truck if he had hit the cab.

For sure. I was set on fixing it no matter what the insurance company said.

My situation is different. Ill be brief.

I am a fireman and was on industrial injury due to recent shoulder surgery (6/14/17). I was leaving Physical Therapy when this accident happened so technically I was "on duty". The kid who hit me was at fault and has Progressive. Progressive took full responsibility for the claim. I have Hagerty on this truck and my 69 Suburban. My regular cars are insured with State Farm. I told Progressive I will deal with Hagerty and let Hagerty deal with Progressive. Hagerty sent an "appraiser" to look over my truck. I had my initial check for vehicle damages 14 days after the accident.

Bad part of all this is I re tore my rotator cuff and now have to have a second surgery 9/20/17 to re pair the last surgery from 6/14/17. I am out of work for a while and the kid who hit me only has 15k in coverage (state minimum) so Hagerty has to kick in my underinsured coverage.

I have good friends and guys I work with who will be helping me out so I am not too depressed. Just a lot of "extra" stress beyond all the regular life stresses.

Re: Finished my 64 two days ago and this happened!!!!

First off, thank you for doing what you do!

Secondly, I worry about this very thing on my truck, I have it on an agreed value but I am now thinking to put more on it or move to a Classic insurance company like hagerty.

After my truck is done with what I'm doing, replacement cost would be in the 30k range I would think so...

I am also glad your rebuilding your truck! Good luck with it and your surgery!!

During your online application process they ask how many miles you will be driving it. They do not necessarily insure a "daily driver". There is another big name classic car insurer who does daily drivers. I usually price shop between the two.

During your online application process they ask how many miles you will be driving it. They do not necessarily insure a "daily driver". There is another big name classic car insurer who does daily drivers. I usually price shop between the two (Grundy and Hagerty). I think Grundy will even insure your "other" daily drivers like Honda and Toyota.

I also took the time to install a remote transmission cooler behind the front bumper. I upgraded to a 4 core radiator 3 days before the accident and there was not a trans cooler built in.

Drives good. Now I need to finish working out the Gremlins I was working on before. The exhaust has a leak and needs some work as it is too close to the starter and brake lines.

A few days before the accident I ordered Dakota Digital VHX gauges because I wanted a tach and temp display. I have the new display installed, the sensors installed, relays run, but need to wire the controller up under the dash.

Getting closer.
