I just bought a 1953 International pickup, It’s in decent yet rough shape. The original engine and trans are still in it, and both are still good. Got it to fire earlier, it’s rough, but not terrible. I’m trying to decide a few things, one is that someone replaced the seat with something a little “softer.” Should I do something to clean up the interior and make it look right? Or find the original type seat and reinstall it. Also, I am trying to decide what color to paint it. I’ll probably have it mostly ready for paint within 3 months. I’m thinking Charcoal Grey with Flat Black accents, or a plain Midnight Blue with Metallic clear coat. Any advice?
