Looks like a total wreck.  Great weathering skills, this is amazing.  Cheers.

Is that a new head gasket in the bin on the seat ?

Somebody must be planning a "restoration".

( Marvel Mystery Oil is "Da Bomb" !  Cure's most mechanical problem's . )

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage.

   Soon to be on the bench...

That is excellent. It has the look just right.

Thanks for all of the kind words everybody. This truck was actually an experiment, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

The gasket in the box is a new valve cover gasket.

Can You Imagine ?

 Driving that thing to make a living . Think about it .No Power anything . Probably before 4-10 gears and a George overdrive too . Double clutch every gear above first .

 No air conditioning .No Truck stops like we know . No trucker showers either . Old Mom and Pop , Choke and Puke eateries . If there were Truckers Motels they doubled as houses of Ill repute as well .

 You had to shake the cockroaches out of your clothes in the morning . Now those guys had it rough . Yes they were a tough  , You had to be . To Restore that Barn Find would be a proper memorial to the middle of trucking history .
