The pickup belonged to my grandpa for a long time, mostly sitting in his backyard going to the dump every so often and becoming a home for black widows. Me and my cousins would pretend to drive it when we were little. He gave it to me when I was seventeen and I spent the following six years doing a mechanical/driving restoration on it. It was my daily driver for three years and I would just fix things up as I went. Original straight six and three speed column shift, twelve bolt, and six lug truck. Suspension for a 3/4 ton from LMC, and 33-inch tires. It handles 2,500 pounds of firewood in the bed like a dream. He passed away in 2021, but every time I drive this thing, it feels like he’s right there with me!
