It never crossed my mind to look at Mexican trucks. I imagine the hassle of getting one across the border would be a bridge - or a wall - too far.

And Venezuela is a whole 'nother continent.

I love these restomod projects, keeping classic appearance, or sorta-classic, while bolting in new hardware to improve the entire experience. You get engines that are both more powerful and more fuel efficient, a transmission with more than three speeds, brakes that actually stop the vehicle, and shoot, you can even upgrade the interior with factory air. You'll probably have to fab up a ventilation system that can actually hold an evaporator, but a '66 truck with air conditioning? Yes, please!
