    My caution about the title is simply that, if you get it running and moving, the titled owner might have a much bigger desire to have it back. Personally, I wouldn't lift a finger until I had a title in hand, otherwise you might get the ‘that was my grandfathers truck, he drove it in Korea...’ story,and it becomes more expensive.

    They are cool old rigs! Id love to have one for my cabin up in Crown King. What kind of motors and trans are repower options for them.

    Thanks to all of you... Ill see if i can get the old master and fronts to work but im pretty sure its totally rusted shut and rotten. I Guess ill have to clean up the E-brake, use the engine when needed and hope for the best. I did find the vin/serial plate it was in poor condition. No need for a title (yet), the owners are dead and its all been abandoned for 10+ years, and the neighbors want it cleaned up in a hush hush way.
