Spent a little time with the truck yesterday.

Stripped out the interior, laid down sound deadener, carpet, painted doors, (used 66 Mustang arm rests instead of the big stock ones) installed a new fuel sending unit, some LED tail lights.

Just trying to get the truck to a good spot so that I can get back on the Mustang. once I sell that I can go deep into the truck

Interior before



Getting a little better.



and new tailights

Got a tailgate put on, and took it to Rims on the river this weekend.

I didn't want to take it, it's definitely not show worthy, but I was helping out my buddy that puts on the show, checking in, parking, etc, so I brought it.

My buddy Will owns the one in front of mine. Hope mine looks as good as his once I finally start really working on it.

I am kind of debating on my red interior since I think that kind of limits my color choices to Red, Black, Silver or White.

I'd go dark red, almost a brick color for the interior. Or a combo of a medium red and black.

PLEASE don't do a silver interior!

No no no..

I meant that if I keep the red interior, I think that kind of limits my exterior color choices to either Red, Black, Silver or White.

I am wondering if I should change up the interior color so that I have more choices for exterior colors.

Ahhhh. Yes I'd agree red interior doesn't match everything. I think red interior and a blue exterior work as well as several gray or silvers. You really just can't do green or yellow unless you want to either wear mistletoe all the time or have a picture of Hulk Hogan or Ronald McDonald on the side.

Ok, so I have been spending a lot of time on the Mustang lately, but I have not completely neglected the truck..

Ever since getting it, I have wanted to switch out the nose to a 67. I just like that whole sloped look better. I found out just how proud they are of the 67 hood and grille (over $500 each) then I would also need all the trim, fenders, core support, etc...

I had been watching Craigslist for a 67-68 hood, and finally found one for $50. It was rusted out at the front lip, but I would not be needing that.

I took both hoods, and cut the front supports out of each one.



then welded the 69 support into the 67 hood (tacked in place here)



Then of course the 67-68 hood is too long for the 69-72 trucks, so I cut the front 1.5" - 2" off the hood.. (started at 1.5", then trimmed back 2 more times until it fit)



Now, I have the sloped hood of a 67 on a 69.. A hood that should not be

Also, the truck only has a gas gauge and speedometer.
I had some gauges left over from another project, so I got a few more,
and a 7 hole bezel.. Now I need a speedo, tach, and maybe a clock or something.

Man, the hood makes a killer difference in the truck's looks, great job! Truly envious of your metal working skills!

Shhhhhh... Lol.. I think the trade that was agreed on has fallen through. It was for a 55 Chevy 150, but the guy has gone silent.

The Mustang, and Formula are both about ready to go on the road.. I don't need 5 cars on the road at once, so figured I would start looking for the next thing..

Since I was already set on a trade, I figured I would see what else is out there. Last night I was thinking I might just pull it from CL and hold off until it's painted to get the best bang for my buck.

What kind of ballpark trade value does a truck like this get? Asking out of ignorance, honestly.

They are worth more than a 55 Chevy (Guy is back in touch now).. People are proud of these trucks, lol..
I just looked this morning at Craigslist. 67-72 Shortbeds are starting at 13,500 for something decent body wise like mine, and go up from there.

NADA has it listed as
