This 1997 k1500 was my first vehicle. I bought it from my uncle who was the second owner. The truck had 117,000 miles on it at the time. It was originally green and had lots of rust from many Wisconsin winters. I was 14 at the time and had dreams to build this truck and make it like brand new, and so I started tearing it down in August 2020. I blasted and painted the frame and did all new brake and fuel system from LMC Truck, then moved on to body work. I put rust-free doors and box on and did rockers and cab corners. The truck was all built in my garage and I’m so thankful for all the help from my Dad and my family. The truck was finished in April 2022. I plan to keep this truck for the rest of my life. I want my kids to experience the same things I’m experiencing with my dad.
