    Andrew, She's beautiful, the attention to detail is awsome. It didn't look that nice the day it rolled of the assembly line.

    Hey Jeff,

    Thanks for the comments. By the way, that is the original windshield washer bottle...I just cleaned it up. These trucks were such a low volume production that I'm not sure any two were the same.

    It didn't come with hub caps, but I have though about seeing if I could get a good set...

    The bedlined headliner is final and it really looks a lot loike the original vinyl headliner that came in the truck...I'm very happy with it...

    Thank you Carl...

    My father bought the truck new and he agrees that it didn't look this good when he drove it home... I'll give it to my son in 30 or so years and I'm hopeful that it won't be rusty when I do...

    Beautiful!

    So when does the Travelall restoration start? Love to see a matched set beside one another!

    I'm running plans through my head, but I don't have any more garage space. I guess having as many restored vehicles as you have bays is good, but I wish I had more room... I'll figure it out...

    Just stumbled on to this build from a link on Facebook and realized this was the awesome truck I saw a few months ago riding around on rt3 near Harrison crossing . I had my wife snap a quick pic and asked a few friends if they knew who's truck it was with no luck , would love to see it out in the daylight as it looked amazing at night in traffic

    I tried to upload the pic I posted on my Instagram but it won't let me

    Oh I'll also be picking up a 62 travelette here very soon to start a resto mod build on

    Wow. This build is great. My 66 Travelette is being delivered sometime today and I'm excited about the possibilities. A restoration is in the future but right now just planning to drive and enjoy it

    Andrew, what an incredible restoration. Job well done. I'm restoring a '64 C1200 and wondered what color the shop calls your seat upholstery? It is a great color for the red truck, which is what mine is too. I'm about to get both seat re-done and this is the color I want to use as well. TIA Looking forward to your other projects.

    Just discovered your thread. Awesome looking truck. You did an incredible job.

    Wondering if the teardrop camper ever came to pass?
