Great job on the seat!  Wow, How did you clean the springs?  The denim is a nice touch, may need a pocket somewhere  :D

Hope you have plenty of Blue Creeper!

No plans on converting. No money for that. If I was going to do a conversion, it would be to put it on a modern chasis.i just want a running driving old truck.

The springs were pressure washed then painted with rustoleum rust converter spray paint

Yes the seat looks good and that comment about the "pocket" made me chuckle.   :D

Probably the first thing I do will be to put a modern fuse block in so it doesn't burn down. The old cloth covered wire is shot. I had to disconnect the battery when one of the wires under the dash shorted on a the choke cable. The wiring in this old truck is pretty simplistic, so changing all of it will be a priority.

I think that is a very good idea.  Also a small ABC extinguisher would be a good 3rd passenger for a while, eh?  ;)

Jeff,  good looking old truck.  I traded off my '48 Ford F3 a few years ago and have kicked my butt ever since.  So I bought a '62 International Farm truck to use here on our little farm.  Looked at a '57 Chevy ton truck the other day.  Keeping it in the back of my mind.  Very nice on the seat!  My IH's seat looks similar to the way yours did.  Enjoying this thread, keep us informed please.

Don't know how I didn't see this thread earlier. I know you said "no conversion", but have a look at this.

I was going to hit it with the wire welder until I started to clean it up.

Nope, and I'd bet there are more if I kept wire brushing. :)

Look like the previous feller got everything out of that poor clamp and the pipe failed instead. ;D

 A muffler shop pipe will have a kink. Ask the parts store for a mandrel bent piece or order just the pieces you need from Summit Racing. Summit is very dependable.

I sold a 47 a couple of years ago, did not want to mess with the originality and it was too slow to do what I wanted it for. Not the fastest rigs with that motor to be sure. You will get run over on I 75!

There is one sitting in Roger City on the north side of town at that oil company, and I think it has a factory visor.

The muffler shop I use has a mandrel and custom bends, he even stocks seamless pipe.   :)

Not a single muffler shop in Mt. Pleasant. Had 1.5 inch pipe. It is obsolete. I found a full hose that worked.
