Started with my Dads 1949 Ford F1, with 60,000 original miles, broke it dowm, had it painted then he and I have continued the restoration, lots of busted knuckles and bruises, and empty pockets, but darn close to finishing it...huge smile on his face....damn well worth it! By the way...that's Dad sanding on the bed boards, very last pic....

Great job and what a neat pickup. We had a '50 model on the ranch with a flat head V8 and four on the floor that we used as a pear burning wagon. One Saturday night about 50 years ago, an illegal alien decided to make a run for the border and did not make it very far before he rolled it out through a pasture.
Adios,
Gary
