Frame looks super solid. Gotta love the Georgia trucks. Too bad you're not into Jeeps.

Ha, I was just telling my dad that this frame is far and away more solid than what's under my 2001 Silverado. This truck spent the majority of its life in the California desert till this guy brought it back to south central Georgia. First matter of business will be to seal it off with por15 so that im not the guy to be responsible for destroying it with "Ohio" after it survived 72 years lol

Sweet wheels too!
Score on the wheels. Even it you powder them they still look classic hot rod.
Im pumped about the wheels. Im guessing a bit of aluminum foil and glass cooktop cleaner will get them plenty presentable for the rest of the truck. The fenders will be painted black, but the rest of thecab and hood will retain the rolled on red lacquer that my uncle's applied back in the 70's. It'll be a sweaty daily that still gets used, at least while there isn't salt on the road.


Speaking of the truck, just pulled in the driveway after pulling this old pile 900 miles ;) she rolled farther into the yard off the trailer than I expected, but never fear, the mighty old wheelhorse pulled her back up on the slab, and she wasted no time marking her territory with the goopy old power steering fluid left in the line from days gone by.
