Learning to restore trucks/cars

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Learning to restore trucks/cars

I am interested in learning to restore trucks. I already have a truck, a 1955 Ford International, but I dont know where to start, or how to start. So I think my first job would be to figure out what needs restoring, a sort of checklist that i can use to figure out what i need to restore. But to be honest, I dont know how to tell what needs restoring when it comes to internal parts(the body is a bit more obvious).

Congratulations. Might I suggest the first place to start is by finding out what kind of truck you have. Ford and International are two seperate companies that made trucks in the olden days.
