Well rare is more of the way I percieve things...LOL I plan on aquiring some
of the neat rare old options for what ever truck I decide to buy......and
then get it running and slowly continue from that point on!

And I have not sworn off the 5 window....but as the situation sits, the best
complete truck (rust wise) is a 3 window......I was thinking a 3 window with
a factory visor....and maybe a few other options i don't know about but
which he may have floating around here!

Huckster bed trucks and '53 Hydra-matic GMC's.

Whats a huckster bed?...yes I am new  LOL

Instead look
