I picked up this '76 back in October. It was a father/son project truck purchased from Wimberley 4x4 in 2006. The guys there did a lot of mechanical and body work in 2008, and the cruiser got one of the last steel full tubs that CCOT produced. It was at that shop a while and was one of the last projects to come out of Daniel's shop before his brother passed and he eventually sold the business to Proffitt's. I don't think the PO used it all that much since the restoration was done. There is a laundry list of small items for me to take care of, but nothing overly complicated.
I have to give a big thanks to @FARMAN33 and @Stexag for their guidance during my shopping. I would have overpaid for a pile of junk multiple times if not for their sound advice. I jumped into this feet first but the nod of approval from Brian was good enough for me.
This thread won't be an epic transformation story like Patina, Pikachu, Patches, and several others that I have learned from and really enjoyed following. I have a pretty modest to-do list and I'd just like a spot to document how I make this rig my own, my maintenance/repairs, and lots of adventures along the way.
