When Eric and Joan bought the truck it was running but not moving!  They had it towed to  Four C’s Transmission Specialty in Santa Fe Springs.  The transmission was re-built & given a good checkup = everything else it needed. It now has all new brakes & brake lines – Frame work- split manifold with pipes & flow thru mufflers – new rear bumper – new starter- battery – wind shield wiper motor & wipers- completely re-wired & Eric gave it rear back up lights – a new dash with all new gauges.  He replaced the rear view mirrors you see in the pic (no view) & put full truck mirrors on.

People ask Eric if he's going to fix it up? Of course they mean restore it.  He doesn't think he'll ever totally fix it up = he's having too much fun with it.   Personally he likes the patina; He thinks it brings character to the truck and he doesn't have to tell people not to touch it- also he can use a truck & that’s why he bought it !!!
