I think I stole the truck at $700 for a rust free (except one front fender) roller, and she came with a pretty blue texas title and a new windshield. Hasn't even had the stickers on it yet.

Sweetness!

I just got into a 68 GMC 3500 stake bed for $350. Ran and drove, i had to tape up a hose and pinch off a brake line to get her home. $50 later and i had new brake lines, hoses, thermostat, and belt. Re-packed the front (DRUM BRAKE) bearing s ans was good to go. I got about 7-800 in it already with the $300 trailer hitch, and new fluids, wipers, roll-on rustoleum paint. 292 I-6 with 4spd manual 2wd

If i had a picture i would show it to you. Good luck with this one, looks like a loto of promise and a good deal

thanks, This thing is SO getting the shiniest blackest rustoleum roll on ever conceived. My roommate is a body guy, and I will paint anything, and I mean anything and enjoy it. I am gonna thin the rustoleum and do like 8 coats, that is after fiberglass, bondo and a crap ton of sanding and welding. I have some trim holes to tack too... I got my work cut out.:)

good deal on the stake bed! I Love that look, I can't decide wheather to do step side or fleetside with this one as i have both... HAHAHAHA!! Possibly step side because they are all gone, and this one is mounted and I hate cutting off 43 year old rusted on bolts:eek:

after some rearanging, move the big red burb to the back yard, and moved my project up to the plate... Lots of work to do still.

and I cleaned out my shed, note all the crap scattered about. :lol:

I sealed most of the cosmetic rust with grey primer, just because I was bored lol.
