Default Howdy! 63 305e!

If I canít cut it with a saw and nail it, I really donít know what Iím doing! But between youtube and now this club here I got this old girl going. It was my uncles duck hunting truck. He passed away and I inherited it. It sat for some time but it runs great after some love. Just wanted to say thanks for the help everyone! Also, will buy parts.

I have to admit -- I've never seen a paint job quite like that before! Unique for sure. Congratulations on inheriting it and getting it running again. For it to be a true 1963 model, though, it would have the earlier wraparound windshield. The more rectangular style windshield like yours was introduced in the 1964 models.

Looking forward to seeing more photos.

This is pretty dang cool1 I like that paint job. It ain't factory, but it is neat. Part puzzle piece and part desert cammo. I'd drive it like it was made of gold.

Good luck with your new girl. She's a beaut. If you take care of her she'll still be running long after you arent!

Greetings supervannkhalel!

Your truck looks to be in almost pristine condition for its age. Congratulations on your inheriting this wonderful old truck. It's a keeper, and something that you may want to pass on to your kid(s) or a favorite nephew when your time comes to leave Earth and go on to Heaven!
