This is Bill’s 1962 Ford unibody truck. It was previously used by a local handyman who stenciled “HOME REPAIRS” on the doors with black spray paint. While removing the letters, we stepped back and it read “HOME R” as the other letters were gone. That, and the fact that the truck is yellow, is how Homer got his name. Look for more posts on this project in the future. Plans include an engine upgrade and a suspension swap.

Here is an interior shot of the cab. Notice the copper on the transmission tunnel? That is patching a hole that the PO made to install a floor shifter, presumably, after some problem with the column shift mechanism. The column shift functionality has been restored and works fine. Oh, and there are plans to replace those sweet floor mats as well.
