    and latest was a college graduation gift from my Grandpa shortly before he passed away a couple years ago, has been sitting in his garage for about 10 years before me receiving it but plan on just cleaning it up and light restore and leave it original. Has always been in the family.

    No, but that's very cool, and oddly similar to mine. I do keep mine in Northern Wisconsin, though it's Minnesota titled.
    The one in your photo has an original tailgate - mine has a NOS tailgate from a 1972 or so truck. Where in Wisconsin did you see that truck?

    Decent service, check the mechanicals and a good clean.
    You will be tempted to overdo the "light restore" and erase your grandfather's "footprint" in the process.

    The vehicle is beautifull as it stands.

    No. I spent a lot of time on ford-trucks.com when I was fixing it up, but I've kind of been out of it as a hobby for a while other than keeping it running. I have some plans for it when my son (he's 1 now) gets a little older. I use mine as a truck, hauling wood and such up at the cabin. I finally retired it from boat launching duty this summer when I got stuck. I forgot to put the plug in the boat :eek1 and the old 2wd with the tired 240 couldn't pull her out full of water and dug a big old trench in the gravel. Hooked my wife's Forester up to the trailer and it came right out. I loved towing the boat with it because the boat is also a 1966.
