I have a 1945 ford pickup that I have lost interest in It. It runs and drives in fact I have put on about 1000 miles since I have owned it. I have owned it for about 8 years or so. Would love some advice of what to do with it. I know this sounds crazy but all true. Needs some TLC . Thinking I would like a 61- 66. P/U. Any advice would be appreciated

Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.

like the truck, it’s time for something different. All I do is cruise around. Is it worth anything because its a 45? No one can answer that. I believe only a little over 300 made. Need some direction.

What's the worst that could happen?
Are you thinking of selling this truck and then looking for a replacement or are you just looking for a another toy to play with?
Would really like to see more pics when you have time -- especially if you plan to sell it ;) .

Personally I really like the mid-60s flaresides like this one:

However, your current truck "ain't too shabby!"

Almost forgot --- Welcome to TRS.

90 is some quaint little road that goes from Boston to Seattle.

Here as some pictures that I have. I am not at the location where the truck is. It’s not a a bad truck at all , but needs some TLC. Mostly electrical. The motor starts and runs well . Love the old flatheads.
