Default New to me:. 1965 1500 long bed wideside 4spd

Just picked up a '65 here from a local enthusiast that likes to chase these down and flip them.

It's pretty much unmolested except for an engine swap.

Based on the seller, he got it from the original owner from a farm in Colorado and the odometer isn't rolled so it's around 13k miles.

It's got a nice patina that I'd like to try and maintain.

As much as I'd love to leave it as-is for as long as possible, I'm thinking of upgrading to a dual reservoir master cylinder and look into power steering.

More pictures to follow soon.

Very cool.
The dual master swap seems to be a smart thing to do. All I need are a couple of brake line fittings and some time to do my 64's.

If you're going to convert to dual master, you might want to look into switching over to DOT 5 silicone brake fluid.
