Have a Seat by dal-designs
Have a Seat
Interior of my newest project truck. Original dash and steering column? Check.  Original window glass? Check.  Original pedals? Check.  Ugly, raggedy donor seats? Check.

I guess I'll have to find door inserts.  Given that the tailgate and bed alone are worth what I paid for the truck, I'm guessing those aren't going to be cheap.

230 c.i. Tornado straight six in my latest project car, a 1965 Jeep J300 4x4 pickup.  Doesn't run but does turn, with 89000 miles on it according to the title (although the odometer only has five places, so it could be more I suppose).

Say Hello
1965 Jeep J300 Gladiator 4x4.  Auto transmission and original 230 c.i. Tornado straight six.

The more I look at this truck the more I think I got a really good deal.  Engine turns, all the badges are still there, original dash is in great shape, all-metal bed- the heavy pipe bumpers are the only real deviation from factory

1965 Jeep J300 4x4 with original Tornado straight six engine.  I hope to start restoration on it next month.

Aside from that, I've been a soldier, a waiter, a surveyor, a GIS technician, and a grocery store cashier.
