    Hey this is Nathan I just bought the truck. It is in really rough shape but I am in the process of restoring it. I did some wet sanding on it and got the numbers off of the hood and doors. Should be a fun project.

    David Doyle's book about Dodges has quite a few pics of those trucks. I'm sure some of them are of your truck, it should be easy to tell now that you have the hood numbers.

    Hi Nathan,
    Thanks for posting on this thread! I’m glad to know the truck went to someone who’s going to restore it. A big project for sure but it will be worth it. Please keep us updated.

    Will do, I'm going to try to record the restoration process. It's going to be a fun project.

    I got to see this truck and meet Nathan last week at Tower Park. It is going to be a major project but Nathan is a young guy, so will have plenty of time, and the energy to do it.
    What really cool is many of the one off pieces are still present on the truck. While we were looking I tensioned the fan belt with one hand and tugged on the fan. The motor does not appear to be stuck!

    God love you Nathan. You are a good man for taking on such a project, but if the truck can be saved then it is worth it. You will probably have to fabricate the bed since it's gone on the truck! Wish I lived closer I would totally be spending time helping you if I could, but OH to CA is a long commute...LOL. Good luck and please keep us posted on your progress.

    Hey guys just got it running today. Threw a 5 gallon can of gas on the fender, grabbed a battery, and squirted some starting fluid in the carb. At first the valves were sticky and it was only running on 2 cylinders but it finally broke loose and fired up. It sounds great.
