I picked this up because it was very dry and no rust. Arizona Truck its entire life. Bought from second owner that drove it from '67 on. At some point in the '70's he dropped a 350 in it and drove it up to about 10 years ago, removed the small block and left the trans and original transfer case in it. He sealed the big screen with a couple of tubes of sealant and what looks to bo beeswax. Sealed all openings with aluminum duct tape and buried it under a plastic and plywood tomb. It was like peeling an onion to get all the layers off. Before putting it to rest he took rattle cans of white paint to cover any surface rust, the original paint is an off white. Did early 40's engine firewalls come black from the factory? Would like to hear your thoughts on the vin and what's correct and not!
