Interior looks great! I love those poncho style seat covers on these old rigs. Heck, I'd find an actual mexican style blanket with brighter colors and use that! It would go perfectly with the honcho haha.

Haha that would be awesome! Have to check the swap meet sometime lol but then I'd have to get some dingleberries to hang from the headliner and windshield too!

Oh and as far as I know the po said those covers have been on it since it was almost new. The Levi seats underneath look great, I didn't take the covers off all the way though to check, may have to untie them and have a look.

Worked on scraping some 35 year old grease from the bottom of the truck over the weekend, and I found a front axle underneath there! Hope it doesn't fall apart now

Let me know whenever yep it's drivable took it for a few spins in Ely down the old non-maintained hwy 50, ran great except for all the noises, exhaust, lifters, etc. Will be a while before I dare roam the streets of Vegas, alot of stuff to do before registering it.
