The body is fairly straight, no real rust damage, certainly no cancer.  It has a damaged left rear fender and some minor damage here and there but otherwise it would not be a huge effort to clean it up.  Engine and Tranny were gone when I acquired the truck about 33 years ago, Front axel was bad, I pulled it off and scrapped it.  The doors open and close OK, the sheet metal is good, interior upholstery shot but bench seat frame and springs in good shape.  The corner windows in the cab are in good shape, all the flat glass could be replaced at nominal cost but it is not all bad.  All in all, as a rat rod project, this is a pretty good bone to start with.
