Owner: Chuck Sanchez
I bought this very clean truck from a fellow in Spring, Texas who told me he had it in his garage for nine years. He tinkered with it until he got bored and it started taking up space. He said he bought it from a man in Alvin, Texas.
The engine, transmission, driveline and brakes were completed by them. The gas tank has no gas in it and there is no water or battery.
I purchased it from him with the intention of completing the restoration and selling it. I have had the truck repainted to look as original as possible. The boards in the bed have been painted black and as you can see the exterior is green with white bumpers. The interior paint is grey. I had to replace the right window because it had a vertical crack top to bottom. I was lucky enough to find a glass shop right here in Byron that has the old laminated glass for older cars. I removed the wheels to find brand new brake shoes already installed so all I did was adjust the brakes, service the new master cylinder and bleed the brakes. I am still working on replacing window and door seals and door trim then converting from 6 volts to 12 volts system.
The pictures below are a variety from the time I picked the truck up in Texas to shortly after the paint job.
Thanks for your interest.
