This is a restoration I did a few years ago. I got it in a trade with a member here. It was in decent shape with just a bad '60's paint job, missing emblems, stock tail lights and firewall. It also had most of the trailer. I decided to build it as a curbside and just concentrate on the body and interior. I separated the cab from the bed and filled in the cab wall. I separated the grille from the bumper. Opened the grille, drilled out the molded in headlights, added reflectors and lenses. I modified both bumpers and added bumper bolts to the front bumper. I scratch built a splash pan. I made new bezels for the bullet tail lights with aluminum tube. The holes from the missing emblems were filled. It's painted with Krylon Ocean Breeze with Testors Dull Cote. Wheels are Pegasus with Revell Good Year SCS's with painted whitewalls. The interior is painted the same color with white accents. Can’t see it in the photos. But, I scratch built a tuck and roll headliner and glued it to the glass runners to cover them up. It really tidies up the interior. It's a simple old model. But, it looks the part.

Very cool!  Nice job on the jamb lines.  You do something with the windshield, looks so clear.

Not much for the lowered look, but you have done some mighty fine detail work to this rescue.  Really like the work you did with the bed and the front bumper/grille. Exceptionally nice overall build.

May be a simple model but trucks were simple things back then, too. I love it! The photos look like ones of a real truck!
