Our trucks left the factories with build sheets tucked behind the seat springs. Oftentimes, though, they disappear over the years. So check under and behind your seat. If you find one, be careful attempting to remove it without tearing it.

The rest of the truck is super solid including the floorboards and other than some missing trim pieces everything is there...

What I found out today (from you) is that my interior is exactly the custom sport trim package you described. I am excited to know I lucked into a rare option but not sure what that means in terms of value and the direction i should go in restoration.

I guess the one "negative" is that the previous owner put a 500ci Cadillac Eldorado Motor and TH400 transmission.

Like I said I have only been a classic truck owner for about 3 days so I am sure I will have a ton of questions....

It’s been a few months since we last saw your ‘66 Megan. How does it look today? What have you done since you bought it? Did you replace the Cadillac engine or is it still in the truck?

caddy engine still in the truck but freshly rebuilt... the modifications necessary to undo what was done to accommodate the 500 Caddy motor and, th400 transmission and so forth was prohibitive....

so far I have rebuilt the motor and transmission, replaced all the front suspension components (ball joints , drag link etc.) upgraded the front to disc brakes and changed out the master cylinder so that the truck actually stops.... rewired a good part of the electrical.

current projects are to continue to try to revive the original wood bed which is in decent shape and to have the buddy seat reupholstered in the original dark and light gray configuration

I am sure it wont make the purist happy but had to move forward with what was done..PXL_20231007_230335582.jpg
