    How much is he asking?

    If it has rust, I'd be surprised...Texas cars normally don't get rust.

    Im thinking at this point, it depends on if things are seized up. I dont have a garage, so I have to do EVERYTHING in a driveway.

    Big downside there.

    I dont think I could ever do that.

    I like running the old shit around. Its not like I would race the thing and need it 100% safe. Today I hit a speed bump in my truck and thought I lost a rear axle.

    awesome patina. Buy it, get it running mechanically sound, drop the shit out of it, make sure you keep the writing on the side, people paint trucks with fake rust and old letters to try and get them to look like that.

    Do a period correct 350 or something.

    I've always liked those.

    period correct is 283 and a powerglide.

    Not a favorite combo of mine.
