Restoration Big Red

1980 K30 4 speed

Overview

My parents bought this truck in the early 90s with a side in camper and owned it for close to 10 years. They traded it to my uncle for an "economy" car. He lived in the camper for a number of years and bounced around to a few different places. He stayed in Montana for an extended period of time and eventually came back to Washington.
He'd pretty much just been storing it since coming back to the state.

For the last 5 years or so I had been trying to buy it off of him. At the beginning of last year he drove it up to our place so we could start fixing it up. Unfortunately life doesn't always go as planned and he sadly passed away right before Thanks Giving. He was a very compassionate person and always made an effort to help support those in need. I ultimately want to restore this truck with a special thanks to his memory.

Our plate is very full at the moment with our house renovation and I don't have the available space to really tear it down. This will be a slow going project but I very much look forward to getting it started.
