Me too. The more I look at it the more I like it. I am thinking same suspension as my '70 (CV IFS/MN12 IRS), 460/C6, dash out of a '57 Fairlane (year correct for this truck) & am caught about the nose. Keeping the truck as in teh pics or cutting off the bottom of the grille and putting a car grill under it with the car bumper from '57. I would paint it just like this (maybe different colors but the 2 tone pattern) complete with the modified trim down both sides. I would look into period correct Thunderbird AC and if the TBirds in '57 had pwr windows looking into using them. Making it look like a resto rod. Possibly laying the top of the tailgate inward so it slopes downward as on the Ranchero.
