That is badass. I've always loved the look of the older trucks. My favorites have been the generation 1 Dodge Ram (1981-1993).

By the looks of those pictures it would appear the previous owner was ready to paint it!

Bumpers and wheels look good. Now it just needs a nice new "coat"

Nice find!

Its a 64 Fred :)

I had one similar to this when I moved up to PA from GA in 94. But I sold it due to no moneys and a truck that wasn't very dependable. As far as ready for some paint. I think it was primed a while ago. It has some body filler around the cab corners so I don't know what kind of shape they really are and some around the hood. But those are common on these trucks.

I hope your not going to do anything crazy ... like paint it. That'll ruin it's character. I never painted my El Camino for that reason ..... ....... well, that, and I didn't have a pot to piss in the 11 years I owned it. :D

Nice truck! No computerized ashtray bearings, no evil box under the dash with 100 wires coming out of it. Points and a mechanical vacuum advance is OK by me. No ABS, step on the brakes with your own foot if you want to stop. No built in GPS, figure out where yer goin by yerself!

I got a 64 Ford pickup when I was around 19, just after moving to Binghamton. My brother helped me find it. It was faded blue and sat next to some railroad tracks on a farm with a for sale sign on it. When I drove it out of the spot it had been sitting on for a long time, the tires had flat spots on them and they rattled the hay and farm dust out of it in a big cloud most of the way to Oak Hill Road. I had gotten into BOCES welding school, and my truck was the subject of a pair of new custom made floors. Due to youthful lack of judgement I let go of that truck when it got a radiator leak.

It's a 283 with a 4 barrel carb. Someone replaced the 3 speed manual with an auto. Or did you mean gear ratio? Not sure on that one but its geared pretty low.

I was thinking Pearl White but not anytime soon.
