History
My grandfather bought this new in 64. Originally she was white with red interior. After a few years of suffering through her gutless i4, he switched the motor over to a 302 Ford from a 69 fairlane. Over the years she was used as a farm truck, daily driver, and logging buggy.

In the late 90's, my grandfather did a full body switch with another 65 to deal with the plethora of rust and damage from logging.

I was given her at 15. She's a labor of love between myself and my grandfather.
