Old Red

My parents bought me this truck when I was 14 to drive once I turned 16. I started fixing it up right away. I pulled a lawn trailer and cut grass out of it and along the way I made it a very nice truck older truck. I drove it all through high school and college. After college I bought another truck and this one sat around for a few years. I ended up selling it to a guy in Columbus GA and like most all first vehicles a person owns I regretted it! Luckily 3 years later I found it on Craigslist for sale and bought it back from the same guy! I would drive it from time to time, but the years past and I knew it was going to need some work to keep it on the road. That is the beginning of this rebuild. My good friend agreed to help me do a tune up on the 302 I put in it in high school. The engine ended up being too gummed up to work on and we agreed it needed a new motor. We pulled the old motor and while waiting on the new motor to arrive I’d paint the fire wall. Somewhere along the way I was addressing other issues and that’s where this escalated to a full frame off restoration. We worked almost every weekend for 9 months straight on this project. I owe it to my wife big time for holding down the fort while this project was underway! The first pictures is the truck when I first got it and then the full restoration before, during, and after. Hopefully many more memories are to be made for years to come in this old truck. Lots of modifications had to be done on this project! Here is the list done to it along with A LOT of LMC parts.
