    Talked to the owner this afternoon. He went to get a duplicate title friday and got there too late to get it. So its going to be monday. I want to go drop a battery in it and start tinkering with it, but im afraid if I get it running and driving he will change his mind. Si I guess I have a free sunday instead of working on a truck.

    I've seen Casey's 72 in person..... those pics don't come close to doing it justice. Talk about a "frame off" on a truck, this is a benchmark resto. That copper color also is a eye popper.

    I went and visited the truck this afternoon. Owner told me he lost the brakes bet he parked it. Took it to a mechanic to have the brakes fixed. I crawl under the truck to see the e brake cable not hooked up. Okay that explains why he didnt use it. Then I notice the rear break line is broke off by the wheel cylinder. So he was only running off the front discs. So first order of business is fix the cable, brake lines, wheel cylinders out back. Jim

    Having the emergency brake cable freeze up is a common thing with old cars and trucks, especially if it's an automatic. Years go by and no one uses it, then it just becomes frozen. I had to cut the cable on my '88 K Blazer in the '90s, it wouldn't slide anymore.
