I bought this truck about 30 years ago. It was black with flames, on the way home one night a deer jumped in front of me. With the damage done, I decided to redo it. Got the front clip (chevelle) done, put in a tilt column (Riviera). Took it all apart and repaired front end, got a different hood and had it welded together.
Took about seven years to get all the things I wanted to do done - worked on it in my shop a little at a time. Nice to have it back together, painted and on the road again. I'm still working on the interior and have some wiring and suspension to complete but I take it out whenever the weather permits in Oregon.
