Still Love that Fargo - a lot of differences between it and a dodge - more fancy for sure. Yours has the rare 20 inch rims it seems too - luck you. There is a guy in Quebec selling an NOS crank hole cover by the way - hard to come buy, even though you have one already.

I agree. Drive it in its working clothes. It is a lot easier to paint it later if needed than remove new paint to reveal the original

Wow, looking back at my last :D post, I really messed it up.
Anyways, the truck will be polished within an inch of it life (whats left of the paint) and pretty much just a fairly thorough service over all to get it going.

I had some 1/2 ton leaf springs made up for it to replace the very well used 3/4 ton leafs The drivers front has 2 or 3 broken leafs.

My goal is early August.... there I said it in public, now I'm committed.

Oh yeah daveh, Those are 16'' wheels. I got some real nice tube type GoodYear truck blackwall tires. The wheels will be like the original deep red color but in powder coat. with silver split bead rings (they were galvanized).

Cant wait to see it on the wheels. :-X

Thanks for all the great feedback guys.
I was considering buying a fairly sizeable amount of things from Andy Bernbaum Auto Parts.
Does anyone here have any experience with them?
The prices seem reasonable. :-/
