    A contractor working on a neighbor's house showed up with this:

    Other than the crease in the hood it seemed to be in fairly good shape. Especially for a truck in the salt belt. I guess the landscraper's and contractor's trucks stay decent because they tend to get put away for the winter.

    The manager of MY local O'Reilly's auto parts store tried to sell me this square, yesterday.

    The dash is METAL and the truck is pretty sweet. My price is right, but it's NOT what i'm looking for -plus it's white!
    There's a grille and everything but it's not finished and that is NOT what i'm looking for. Tooo cool for me!

    The local square body group leader has a white one fully restored I would rather have a single cab but I love the extended cab.

    been driving past this truck sitting next to the guys shed for awhile, had an engine with headers through the hood and was sitting on about 46" ag tread tires. was obviously just a mud truck for quite some time. went away to the cabin in Wisconsin for the weekend and came home to see he'd stripped the drivetrain out of it and turned it into a flower garden in the middle of his yard right along the main state highway, has a nice flag pole and such all decorated around it now.. I'm kind of in a love/hate with it! Lol But I guess if that's what someone wants to do with their old square...

    I went to shoot sporting clays last night and I seen 4 rust free squares parked next to each other. I wish I got a photo but they left when I left and forgot to get a picture. I will see if next week I see them.

    My Granddad's ole girl found its way to my dad's place. Not too sure whats going on with the stripes, or whats going to happen with it. Thing actually started and drove on the trailer, just had to force feed the carb gas.

    They are definitely that era of color scheme. Kinda funny they are only on the one side of the hood and roof. But very impressive that they lasted longer then the paint.
