    Loving that front end, man! Looks like a beast coming down the road. Yours def looks to be in a bit cleaner. Gotta love when all the original parts are just sitting there like that.

    I've got a 2nd job that kept me busy all day. Drove over to the shop just to sit and stare for a few minutes. haha.

    Going to lower it the way it is. If it doesn't look right with the toolboxes/rack, we'll take them off and leave them in the bed for the next owner. Trying to change as little as possible. Going to be a good amount of time before the drop, though. Sid's is 6 weeks out. :(

    Those door signs rock. I'd love a pair like that for one of my rides...

    When Ducks are lucky... Congrats on the Patina'd Indian Turquoise, or is it April Green? '59.

    Sweet score, and finally a barn find, in an actual barn, with pics. I'd loose the bins and piping if it were mine.

    That thing is in nice shape. I 've always liked the mint color too!

    Chris got it running. Put the carb back on, hooked up the coil, turned right over. She's alive!

    @desertdroog - Indian Turquoise. Is that the actual name of the paint color? Thanks for the congrats! *quack* haha.

    @hot-rod dude - Washed it with water and a soft brush, very lightly. Just enough to get the compounded dirt off of it. Almost thought of not washing it, at all. Glad we did. Looks awesome.

    @n.z.rodder - Funny thing is, only reason I took pics of it in the barn was because I knew my friends wouldn't believe me. My one buddy always says, "Pics or it didn't happen." I'm thinking the same about the bins/piping. I really want to see the look without the them. Problem is there will be holes in the truck where they were attached.

    Nice score! Wish I could find a truck like that, but chances of finding a barn in my side of town is unheard of!
