Stacey & Mike's Happy News: Grandson Restores '54 Truck, Surprises Grandpa

Blake Kincheloe pulled off the ultimate truck restoration by bringing his grandfather's cherished 1954 pickup back to life.

As a teenager, his grandpa, Richard, bought the International Harvester with his mother for $50 and a hog! The truck, nicknamed "Cannonball," remained on his property for more than 45 years, eventually catching the eye of grandson Blake.

When Blake was a toddler, he thought of Cannonball as "his truck" even though it spent much of the time broken and idle. When he grew up, he initially took the truck in for new brakes. 

His plans evolved into a full restoration. Meanwhile, Grandpa Richard was kept in the dark as Blake brought the truck back to working order.
