Vehicle Description

Highlights

—Very extensive re-finish job—invoice shows “$1000 for sandblasting” to prep everything for painting, new splash pans, mirrors, bumpers and other trim powder coated, stainless steel fasteners used to put everything back together.Paint appears to be a very high quality base/clear effort with only a few small imperfections, a few nicks and scrapes from use—refinishing work was done in 2018. The panel gaps aren’t perfect—left edge of hood is higher than adjacent fender for example but given the manufacturing tolerances of 50 yrs ago, nothing looks out of place.The truck was completely disassembled and painted windows out, bed off, etc.Windshield and rear window were resealed.All glass is good.Underside is exceptionally clean—see photos.Bed has a nicely applied, textured sprayed-in liner beautiful inside, outside and underneath.
