My Mother made up a book of our family history and farming was a way of life until the 1970ies.

Here is the Fargo at work and another shot of our family friends who helped in the harvest.
Maybe somebody here could I.D. what the other truck is.

I found a cool old waterslide decal and decided to put it in the back window as the view through the windshield is small enough without and additional clutter. Regina is the capitol city of the province of Saskatchewan and the training centre for our Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) as well as where the Fargo would have been shipped to for distribution in Saskatchewan.

I brazed up a barbed fitting in the coolant line to hook up the heater as well.

I am part way through the wire but there is much more fitting to do.

Here is the view on the engine side of the firewall where the steel pipes/mounts for the heater poke through.

I just cleaned up the original hardware and made some rubber buffer pads that go behind the washers.

While still waiting for the wiring to arrive, I decided to clean up the heater.
It was as expected full of rodent nest and all the good stuff that goes with the filthy varmints.

The heater core must have frozen, the tanks were cracked and the seams were split.
so after much soldering it seems to be good.

In the guise of spending more time than money (my preferred method like Wolfcreek Steve).
I am on to the wiring now that the fenders have been tended to.

I was able to find all the correct wire and terminals from Harnesses Unlimited.
They also sell complete harnesses, but I wanted to make my own for about 1/3 the price.

I also added wiring for signal lights and a second tail light as the truck only had one tail light.
My modern car literally has more wire in the steering wheel than the entire truck has.

While pulling out the rear wiring to the tail light the loom cover had a cool little hoop
at the end for what I assume was for pulling the loom into the truck.

There's two ways to restore an old truck, spend lots of money or spend lots of time! I enjoy the "time" method also.
