CUCV M1009

CUCV STORY

M1009 was purchased on eBay from Classic & Performance Mustangs Inc. located in Denver Colorado. They bought many from government auction. This one was picked up from Barstow, CA. My, one and only requirement was to get a truck with no rust. Classic & Performance Mustangs Inc. offered some reconditioning before being shipped to me.

Because I wanted a straight solid looking truck I asked for additional repairs which included: Repaired large and obvious dents, fiberglass resin shell repair, Hood replacement, Rust repaired on tailgate, Rebuilt door hinges, door hinge pins with door hinge bushings.
