    A guy I know is giving me a 1969 F-350 (360 motor). The truck used to be a dump, but he has taken the hoist and the bed off. The price is perfect and I do get bored in the winter. The condition is rough. It does run, but thats about it. Would some of you guys take on this project, spend a bit of money and get this beast on the road. I would put a stakebed back on it, and use it to haul brush, mulch etc.... Anybody else crazy enough for this project?

    That is a great looking truck. I am looking forward to the challenge. The thing I guess I like best about the truck is it is actually something I can work on. Very basic engine wise and I'm pretty good with body work. Thanks for the posts.

    Actually that is rather funny. To think that a customer actually might care if you are in an old 69 or a 2004. I have been in business a few years, and when I get a request for mulch, nobody has ever said to bring it in a nice looking truck. Anyway's thinks for the comments.

    what a stupid thing to say. what are you driving at 16? (that you paid for yourself)?? a huffy? or a skateboard?

    older trucks like that look awesome when you put them together and give them a paint job. don't let any "wet behind the ear" young dude tell you different.

    here's apic of my '84 that some would say is old. i keep it nice and get complimented al the time.
