Well, of course, the first thing is to get that winnie out of there and put a good engine in it. :rolleyes::D
What year is it? Late 40s early 50s by the break-down handles and no vent windows.
My Dad had a 50 Deluxe with the corner windows and extra chrome.
I basically learned how to drive in that truck.
Enjoy! :tu

You might as well just give it to me so you don't have to see that awful engine any more...

52 had push button handles and vent windows.
Of course the doors could have been changed out.
I'm thinking 47-51 since I can't see the other side of it.
If it has the louvers for the fresh air heater on the passenger side of the cowl, it's a 50-52.
(if I remember that right :rolleyes:)
Come on Tom, break the suspense for us. :D
Oh, he's probably not back from Louisville yet.

I'd red-line that engine and replace it with some Chevy muscle!

That looks like a very good project. I wrote an ad for CL for ya!

FREE LARGE BOAT ANCHOR!
I have a pretty good size boat anchor. Free to good home, I'll supply the tools and cherry picker for removal.
