Teen Truck Build 83 swb

My son turned 14 in feb so he is interested in a truck project. I ran across an 83 swb couple weeks ago, blown engine, but solid, previous texas truck, saved from the crusher.
He was able buy it himself from his summer job for the asking price of $450.
We have a year and a half for the father son project, start slow and hit it hard next spring. He is excited (and I am too!).

Looks really solid for Iowa and is apple red on top of it (my 81 is that color). Looking forward to the build.

Re: Teen Truck Build 83 swb

Thanks.

It is really solid, only had to drive 20 miles to get it, just some cab corner work, and a spot under the left tail light. it will be going to a dark blue metallic.
