Arrow classic license plate

the license plate l put in storage 8 years ago l got it out to look at and get ready to put on the truck when it gets to the stage of licensing her.
lm washington state, we have the antique/classic licensing good forever so it won't have to be renewed every year and having the period correct plate is nice.

kinda wierd how it has a J as the only letter in the sequence.
again, fate, J for jimmy?.........

tail lights are maltese cross.

Talking look what l found in my driveway!!

wow, it looks like a truck, now have take it all apart for a few details, like welding in cross member and motor mounts.

lots little things, wiring, sound deadning and a bunch of odds and ends.
gotta figure out how to lower the rear of the frame to better fill in the rear fenderwell. l think taller tires would fill them, but it will make it set even higher in the rear.

Nice progress!

The truck looks good, but I personally don't think the patina is great looking. I would say fix the rust and dents and paint it red. Good luck!

Being what it is, I say think back to what your sons favorite color was, and paint it up that way. then maybe make a lil plate for under the hood that says "in memory of"
