built this pretty much box stock with some weathering. It's got some rust holes and a different colored hood and tailgate. I scratch built the salt spreader and added the lightbar, a stock air cleaner and a gas can from my parts box. Overall very happy with this one.

Ha Ha I've seen a few trucks like this around Maine this winter Todd, sort of inspired me to finish this build up.

Kyle I like your old truck...Living in the Mid West we see a lot of these...Your Yellow equipment and "Rugged Look" you added to them is really well done...Funny thing about these Old Trucks the body could be really rusted out....I had one from the 70s you. could see the ground through the floor.....But the motor ran great. Got it from a farmer for a $100 bucks...Used it for a "Wood Hauler" and a "Spoting Truck" for canoe trips...The paper work stated that it was a 74 but Old Farmer Milton said "It was a Mish'Mash of a few trucks to make that one." Almost as an after thought he said "The heater works." Thanks for sharing this one.

Thanks again for the good reviews guys, I know what you mean Teddy, I had an old F150 with rust holes big enough to fit my head through. Gotta love these old trucks and their "Character" ;)
