stock factory air cleaner should be black.
Thank You 55carman. I think I will keep it the way it is. With the condition it's in now I won't worry about a small paint chip, stone hitting it.....ect. The only issue I have at the moment is it seems like it's all over the road. I don't know if that is just something the way the vehicles were back then. (I have not driven a vehicle from that era before), or if it can use an adjustment. I think my Dad would be happy i'm driving it, even though he never did. He bought the truck & put it in storage right away.Just read the entire post Great story getting your dad’s truck. I think your on the right track with the truck. Get it running and safe to drive it’s a process don’t get overwhelmed by it. You have a great truck to start with one thing to keep in mind there only original once. Sure it’s been repainted and has some rust issues but that’s no reason for a complete restoration. You can bring that truck back to it’s original glory and protect its value by not restoring it.
I did my first total restoration over 30 years ago and a hand full sense. It’s not always the way to go.
If someone wants a restored vehicle and can’t due most of the work himself your money ahead to buy one done. And then make small improvements to make it your own.
I understand this is your dad’s old truck you want to make it nice. Make it a nice old original truck.
