    Very nice looking truck. Does the front bumper have a bulge in the center or is that just the reflection?

    Good on you! Did you buy this pre-2R original or did someone restore it in the murky past?

    Looks restored/modified to me. We know it didn't leave the factory with painted bumpers and headlight rings. Nice and clean job in any case.

    I like it! Bring it to South Bend for the May meet so I can look at it closer!

    I bought it from the family of the original owner. They had painted the fenders, bumpers and head light rings. The rings are pitted so I think that is why they painted them. Could be reason for the bumpers. I know per the build sheet the bumpers were chrome.
