No, I'm not going to paint, I will redo the interior and get mechanically sound & safe.
It's a 1963 that I will just keep as a survivor and a daily driver.
I think I've posted a pic of my current ride.
It's a 1951 Ford F-1 PU that originally belonged to my Pop.

I love vintage autos and trucks. FIL, when I had moved in with the in-laws for 1978/79, had me helping him do all sorts of auto repair. He was a retired Army/Air Corp motor pool mechanic, and a damm good one too. We overhauled a 47' chevy(?) truck, an International Harvester cab over semi-engine, the flat bed trailer he hauled with it, the vintage truck, my 71' station wagon, a motorcycle.....and other stuff I forget. That was all in 9 months time. I thoroughly loved leaning auto mechanics. MIL meanwhile, taught me how to cook :clap
