Starting to restore this 525.  It is a 1956 model year.  Will be mounting it on a 1966 Ford F600 4x4.  Can anyone tell me if the body shown in the picture is a Holmes body?  It does have the tunnel box up front.

It was in its day.  This truck got us through a number of winters and it's fair share of off road recovery.  It used to have a large drag winch on it.  

Now its going to be retired and be a show piece.

 

Today's progress.
