    This truck is about 25 miles SW of Albany, NY in case anyone is interested. Only about 5 miles from me so I can get more info if necessary.
    BAMS, this one is close enough for you to rescue.

        That truck is in better shape than the M5 my grandparents have. There isn't a single body panel that doesn't need major patch work/replacement. [V]

            You may want to rescue it for the parts. The grille panels are getting hard to find, the hood looks good, there is always demand for the running boards, etc. If it is too far gone it can be used as a donor to get others back on the road.

                yeah just at a look that one looks like either a rat rod or a parts truck. Sad but true.

                        That truck looks pretty daygone straight to me.

                          Bob, just for kicks you should call the seller and find out what they are hoping to get. No matter what, I'll bet you at least get an interesting story.

                          What usually goes along with completely rusted out floors, cab corners, running boards, etc. is that whatever is left of the frame will be mighty thin.

                          As always, rusted multi colored cars look better in internet digital pictures. In real life stripped bare it is likely to be lumpy.

                            You can't save 'em all but there's definitely good parts there.

                              That's not so Matthew! The hood and tail gate are perfect..Even so, as bad as it looked, in less than an hour after we got it home, we were riding in it. And that included building a driveshaft. Ours came out of Savannah Ga. Had not moved in 20 years. NT
