That is an awesome looking truck. Looks like you have a good plan for fixing it up.

The seed of this project go back to when I was stationed in japan in the late 60's. I had a Nissan Skyline GT 2000 with a LT1 muncie and narrowed 8.75 rear axle. The car was totally illegal in Japan. I was being transfered to the Philippines and arranged to ship the car there, were I was going to build a jeep hot rod using the Skyline for parts. I had envisioned a lowboy version of a jeep roadster, fenderless in the front. Sorta Altered Roadster style hot rod. Long story short, someone stoled the Skyline and the car disappeared enroute. I think it got nabbed while still in Japan and never went on the ship. I also shipped a 68' Camaro RS/SS 396/350hp that I later sold to a mayor of a town in Zambales were the movie Apocalypse was filmed.. About 7 years ago I was in a shop owned by an American expat in Angeles City, PI and in the back sat my old Camaro. This car was an oddity as it was built for overseas market originally sold by the Navy Exchange in Japan.. The world is a strange place..

Finally got the old girl off the trailer into the shop. The front wheels are locked up. They are a perfect match for the rears which are just mostly locked up... literally had to drag it into position...

I'm thinking Willy senses that the upcoming transformation is not without some pain....

Built a large wooden pallet on rollers for the cab when it comes off. Started pulling the front apart. Hope to have it completely off tomorrow.

Hoping that 63 year old front end doesn't want to fight you too much......some things get attached to their surroundings more so than they should....LOL

I swear that's why most of these patina "resto "guys don't take stuff apart they can't weld for sh!t if they have to.

Awaiting the Willy next steps with anticipation.

Not a real productive day. Got the Bill of sale notarized and found a lead on a Dakota. Don't have any real information other than its cheap.. might be a short cut to getting the chassis going...
