    My kind of truck right here! I already have 7 square bodies though along with a few others. I don’t want to sell or trade any so I’d have to build another building to house this one. Hmmm…hey, honey???

    I do wonder, after all the other work performed, why the bottom of the bed isn’t painted and the fender embems weren’t replaced.

    Quite a nice job!! Considering what’s been done and the fact that it’s got 200 miles on it!!! It seems like a pretty good deal!!!
