    I feel real fortunate to be the next caretaker of Jim Mcfalls 36 ford ISCA show truck. built back in 1968 and shown for a few years and stored until today.... Pretty amazing condition considering it was built more than 50 years ago. I am going to get it running and driving and not change a single thing. Thanks @*JW* 361.JPG 362.JPG 363.JPG 364.JPG 365.JPG 366.JPG 367.JPG 368.JPG

    Cool. Wasn't there a thread up recently about someone finding this truck? A link to that would be great.

    That interior is glorious. Imagine the time it took to upholster the box. Incredible shape for something built 50+ years ago.

    Does this mean you have to rearrange again so you can get another one in the house?

    Keeping "the way it was built" is a nice tribute to the builder.

    Well done.
     
  22. That’s such a rad truck.... glad it found a home where it will be preserved

  24. Very Cool Mark...is the color a yellow pearl? If that was painted in 68 it’s held up very well...
