Default old car was in bad shape

After i bought car i realized it was in worst shape than i thought. It sat under a tree on brent lane for 15yrs, was in new shape when parked. Backed my trailer up grabbed crossmember and it fell off, car was down in dirt, everything in dirt was gone.had to cut frame off in front cause it was so bad. Put a fat man front on it with r+p steering, and stainless a frames, 2 in dropped spindles. sandblasted frame with my little blaster, burned up air compressor. Have done everything by myself, no help on anything. door hinges found in south dakoda, bumpers and door in neveda. Most of body i built from sheetmetal. Radiator custom built aluminan from my old one at griffin radiator,stainless tilt column and stainless steering shaft. New weld raciAny old gear heads know what this is-cars-005-jpg

That is a great looking car man , you need to get your 2nd wind on that thing.

Most Cars depreciate while the old ones go up on average 4% a year ,and that car is Rare.

I really like the lines on that car , that has nothing to do with the fact I always found Ugly Chicks beautiful .

even they told me I had come too far to stop now !

you gotta finish that car!

A Little Motivation for you.
this is my Grand Fathers 1948 GMC 1 Ton farm Truck.
No one touched it but me. I did all work myself in 1 month working every day.

All Mechanical work , paint , everything Myself with no assistance at all.

engine is running in pic, I still own and drive it
you can get that car in great shape in 1 month

The 64 Ranchero 4X4 was my first build.
1968 Bronco Chassis , extended., HiPo 289
Frame was hidden , looked factory in the day

That was one Pick up machine for the Country Chicks
Took my Wife on our 1st date in it , 30 Years ago
Was love at first sight,
She Loved it !
