The motor and transmission of this truck were (are) in good shape, so no need to pull the motor out and do a rebuild as of yet, the engine just needed a little cleaning up, this is a shot of what the compartment looked like when I brought it home - I have done some re-painting and such on it since.
Well its been a long time since I updated this. Since that time I've done a rebuild of the rear brakes, as you can see the old ones were in bad shape. I also have replaced the wiper motor, and soon hopefully will be re-building the cylinder heads.
Well I was browsing around the paper for weeks looking for some type of old vehicle, preferably a pickup truck, and low and behold what did I find for $800? This 1969 F250 2wd pickup. After some negotiating the price was now $650 and I brought it home. This pic is of me and the truck.
