My wife sold her 2016 Honda Civic, handed me the cash, and said ‘Find me something fun!’
I searched on Facebook marketplace and found a 1960 Chevy longbed stepside with the original 283v8 and 4 speed Muncie floor shifter for sale at a local garage sale!
After purchasing the truck, we worked with a local shop to bring ‘Rusty Girl’ back to life. We did a front disc brake conversion, aluminum radiator with electric fan, all new belts and hoses, Edelbrock intake and carburetor, new clutch, flywheel, starter, etc. My wife and I built and torched the custom Chevron pattern wood bed to have something unique.
This truck is now the logo for our business: Nice Wood Classic Rescue.
We enjoyed cruising 65mph with our pup, Atlas, to our most recent show in Waxahachie, TX, the C10s in the Park.
Thanks! Mark & Kathleen
