OL’ Blue Named by my father in law. It was a light blue truck factory
History of this Vehicle
This truck belong to my father in law. He gave me the truck in 2002. At that time my plan was to make it a daily driver shop truck. I started tinkering and never stoped till we had took it completely apart. I spent a lot of time and money on it. New rockers, cab corners, both doors, inner fender wells, seats out of a 2003 chevy and lots of other parts. A good friend painted the cab and did a great job. Then he got out of the buisness. The next guy painted every other part a different shade of white. So I was little upset when I started putting it back together. Never pay a painter up front lesson learned.
Plans for this Vehicle
Get it back on the road full time. Maybe one day do a real good resto on it who knows.
