My dad bought the truck new in 79. Sold it a few years later but regretted it. 20 years go by and I found the truck sitting in the edge of the woods. It had been there 15 years untouched. How I knew it was his was 1/4 piece of steel had been welded between the frame rails, and chain hooks welded to the plate (trucks didn’t have tow hooks in 79 ).

I was able to buy it back all without my dad knowing. I took it down to the frame and built it back to what you see today. Owning a Body Shop has its perks! 9” skyjacker lift, 40” TSL super swampers, factory “color” paint, and a whole lot of love!

I had pretty close to the same truck, and I regret to say it was stolen and totalled. If you or your Dad would ever consider selling it, I'd be very interested. I miss my truck almost every day, and it was awesome to see it and what you did with it!
