    OOOH! I like that a lot. Very worthy project IMO. I don"t suppose you would care to share what you paid for that would you?

    You keep your costs on that truck under five grand and you got yourself a steal. The bucket works alone are worth more than you paid if there any good.
    Humm what makes me think you already know that? LOL

    That's good to have a working classic. Are you gonna repaint it as well as go through the mechanicals?

    my uncle has a truck like that but much older. his bed is shot though, the tool boxes are rusted through. Its so old that there is no bucket, its a wooden ladder mounted to a steel frame with a cylinder :)
