Truck History
 This truck had 98K miles on it when I purchased it in 1988.  It has been my daily driver since then and currently has 162K miles.  In 1999 I repainted it 97 Honda Black Currant (dark purple) after doing the typical rust repair in the cab corners, hinge pockets, doors and front fenders.
Upgrades include alternator, front disk brakes, dual master cylinder, Old Air A/C, Edelbrock 4 barrel carb, ZR-1 type rear roll pan with backup lights, Sun SuperTach III refaced to match the other instruments, HEI distributor from a '77 400" Pontiac V8, replacing the original "road draft" crankcase ventilation with a PCV system, 15x8" Rally wheels with chrome trim rings and knock-offs, replacing the oil bath air cleaner with a paper filter, replacing the cartridge oil filter system with a spin on filter system from a '77 400" Pontiac V8, removed 2 leafs from the front springs which drops the front end about 2", total replacement of wiring, replacing the "generator" idiot light with an ammeter, replacing the bench seat with a set of bucket seats from an S-10 Chevy pickup, moved the gas tank from the cab to under the bed and replacing the original (rotting) pine wood bed floor and galvanized skid strips with varnished oak and polished stainless steel skid strips.

Truck History
 Bought my truck in 1993 from a sandblaster in Holland and took it apart. It had a Chevy 283 in it.
I'm putting a 305 chevy with a 350 transmission in it. My biggest treasure is the aeroplane hood ornament which I found on holiday in the US. Hope to restart my restoration this year.

 I just bought this truck two weeks ago, it was owned originally by a farmer in Parker Colorado.
I bought it 3-20-04 from someone who had started to restore it, he painted it a custom blue color and did some mechanical repairs.
I have worked for Napa Auto parts for 32 years and now this is my project. I would like to change a few things to make it easier to drive.
I enjoy the challenge!!!

I purchased this truck last year in america. With a lot of help from my  friend Bob who lives in portland we got it roadworthy and drove it around on our trip over to Bonneville speedweek. I then shipped it back to new Zealand. We have a lot of "silly" rules here and i am just working through these now so i  can get it legal for our roads. It is to be my families every weekend driver. it has already done a load of firewood and a couple other chores. I love it. I belive it to be original.

 I bought the truck in December of 2004.  It had been sitting for 20 years behind the owners rental.  He bought it to restore to match his late 50's Corvette, but when poor health hit him he decided to sell it.  No other history is available.  It currently has a 1960 389ci pontiac, but I have a complete 57 GMC 347 to put in it.
