Dude! Just look at this thing. It’s awesome. A smart person would do the least amount possible to this one and drive the hell out of it all around town. I on the other hand would insist on lowering it and then doing the least amount possible to the rest of it and then drive the hell out of it all around town. It’s got the best all original look to it, was undoubtedly owned by some grandpa somewhere, and even includes all the original paperwork like the Protect-o-Plate. It’s a small block with a 3 speed on the column, and I’m sure anyone with half an ounce of capability could have it running mint before lunch time.
The only thing I don’t love about this truck is that whoever has it now has visited their local parts store and purchased a saddle blanket style seat cover, a can of glass black paint, and a can of Chevrolet Orange engine paint. The seat cover is awesome, and I totally approve because it is what grandpa would have bought for it. The black spray of the floor I can get over, mostly because I’d end up buying a rubber floor for the thing anyway. The rattle can rebuild on the engine, including the exhaust manifolds which should never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever, (you get the point) be painted orange makes me want to stab someone in the face. For that violation, I would have to deduct $100 off of whatever I was otherwise prepared to pay for it. But with that said, I could fix that and make this thing great again.
I’d put a Pertronix electronic ignition kit in it, freshen the carb, check the brakes, put plugs and wires on it, and make sure the tires would last going down the freeway and then put my arm out the door and enjoy the sweet sweet smell of freedom my friends. God bless America.
