Okay. There too much "patina" there for me but I'll take those apple green Model A wheels in the background.

Mine started out just like that. I completely went through it and made it mechanically sound. Replaced the roof, windows and put a good interior in it. I buffed the rust with a fine grade wire wheel(s) on an electric hand held drill and finished it with Johnson's Paste wax.
I have a lot of fun driving it.

Seem's mother nature is wanting that truck back, ... one iron molecule at a time it's being put back into the earth. Heck I'd be afraid I'd get tetanus just getting in it.

Nice find but it's just not my cup of Tea. One good thing about living up here in the So-Cal High Desert, ... No Rust. Right now the Humidity is at 7%.

Regards
Bill

Do what's right and stop the rust, if nothing else. I think it cries out for restoration myself.

Put it on display next to a high points restoration and I think I know which one will receive the most attention.
Preserve it like it is and drive and enjoy it. You won't have to freak out when some kid drips ice cream over the Fenders.

Watching "Grapes of Wrath" tonight - and there it is ! Actually it is a 1926 Hudson modified to look like a truck.
