here are a few pics of my 1960 RAM. right after the budget restoration. it was my first project that was a complete strip down to the frame, sandblast everything and paint(rattle can). rebuilt the engine and replaced all bearings and bushings that i could.

Didnt know you had a Ride-a-Matic

How long have you had it Rick?

 

Looks to be a 1959-1960 Model, What does the ID tag say?

Looks to be all original except for the Air cleaner and Muffler. Do you have the Belt guard for it? Looks like it was taken off to cobble together the Non original Muffler
