Truck Renovation Update #1

Frank’s truck renovation is moving along. It has now been sanded down to the bare metal and will be primed next. The truck has had a colorful paint history. (Click any image to see a larger version.)

It appears that the original color was a dark blue. From there it was aqua, yellow, aqua and yellow again. It’s going to be repainted the original dark blue. The white bumpers and other white coated areas will be restored back to the original chrome.

The wood slatted bed is being replaced as well as every nut, bolt and screw, and miscellaneous items including an original stock radio. The engine and transmission and other working parts are in good shape and just need a little TLC to bring them back to a happy hum. As more in-progress photos become available, they will be posted for you to enjoy.

The truck should be completely restored in time for next summer’s KCPR get together so that Rory can drive the truck up to the event. More about that later.

Hope to see you all there.

With loving memory to Frank,

Pam Logan-Calabrese
