This is where it starts, friends.  California was the original home for this
deluxe Corvair Rampside pickup.   Arkansas is where we found it. 
It hadn't been worked on much, still has all of its original parts and no previous body work outside of some spray can touch ups.
Very solid, it's a great candidate for a makeover.  Considered painting it the original color, also considering painting it a metallic copper color that was on a truck we've had previously.  Jury is still out at this time.
The engine was locked up, but luck would have it, we have a good running 80hp FC engine.  A newly rebuilt 4 speed transmission and differential are awaiting assembly and installation so we can have it up and running.
Of course, all the brakes, fuel lines, tank, bearings, shocks will have to be replaced.  It's just part of the process.   Stay tuned, it's going to go from yard art to absolutely beautiful in this next season, if everything falls just right.
