Looks like it began life like mine did -- as a one ton panel truck.

Chris -- you have the grille letters of a '66. Maybe yours was produced early in the model year (which began in September in those days) and was first registered in late 1965.

It's alivee!!! Man, that's a great feeling when you take a pile of parts and a little sweat then make something that looks like that. Good job! Not many guys walking the planet can do that anymore.
