Looks great to me!  Anything of that vintage around here has already rusted to the windows.  I like the ones old enough that a fellow can work on them when needed.  Way too much unneeded/unwanted stuff on the newer ones. 

My "throttle position sensor" has always been my left foot.

That truck looks pretty good.  It looks like only a little rust under the door.  That is when trucks were trucks.  Congratulations.

Ah, a sweet ride.  I believe I still have a brake booster and a distributor of that vintage in the garage. Or maybe I donated them my BIL already.

And they were made to last back then, just like your tractors! 

 

I like the camper top: that's worth a good chunk of what you paid for the truck.  Plus the 4wd: never call a truck a hauler unless it is 4wd or a dually! 

 

Most trucks in my area of that vintage have already been lassoed by the farm boys and used as beater trucks or oversize ATV's.  But I'm still looking!

I use my trucks for hauling fire wood and tractors.. This may not tug my tractor around so well.. but it will be good for fire wood..
