It arrived June, '07.  The cab was not restorable.  The front wood spoke wheels had already been done by an Oregon company.

New panels get fitted to the floor system and left long at the top prior to fitting the roof.

With all four sides in place, fitting the cab roof pieces begins.  After this, the ribs are fitted, then covered with 7/16ths bead board.

Years ago, after a storm that damaged the truck, the original owner used a Chevy sign that was laying out in the street for repairs.

One month later, the finished truck is ready to roll out.
