Default One that got away, but came home to stay

I bought this '56 F100 panel truck almost 30 years ago. Then after installing a Volare IFS, I sold it, in 2001, to a friend. He stored it in his basement until 2017, untouched by him. Then I bought it back. I am installing a 500 Cadillac engine that was in a '56 F100 truck I drove for a godd long while. I regretted selling it for the 16 years it was away, but it's back home to stay.
The rack in the first photo is not on the panel roof, but on the '56 firetruck behind it.

Great looking trucks. Love the 56 dash. One-offs are cool.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
