Welcome from Tennessee. Sounds like a nice project. I have a 55 that i'm going to start on when I get my car done. It's been awhile since i've done a truck. We would like to see some pictures and hear what your vision is for the truck.
I won't tell you what to do, but I have a '64 truck that I hope to get on the road this summer. Have had it a while, and it sat for a couple decades in a barn near Albany. Anyways, to make a long story short...I wish I would have just made it safe, and gotten it on the road earlier. She is not completely restored now, but I grew tired of seeing it parked during the past couple of summers, so, the plan now is to drive it every summer, and restore it bit by bit during the winters, and always have it ready to drive by spring. I know it will take longer, but you know what, I rather drive it that just see it parked.
