Has the truck ever been repainted? It looks to be in decent shape. What are the build plans?

Can you post a good photo of the dash? I am curious about what looks like a radio mounted in the bottom.

Looks like a great project!

It's been repainted, you can see the original color on the firewall.

I will try and get a better picture of the dash for you.
The plan is IFS, SBC, air bags and keep the body lines like they should be. All the changes are to make it run well and safe on todays roads.

Thanks, man that little radio face is something, I don't think I have ever seen one. On the 47-53 the radio was above the speaker grille on top of the dash and it was BIG.

Thanks for the photos.
