Paint can not go fast enough on this truck. I can not wait to put this thing together. I have been staring at parts forever dreaming of them coming together.

Lookin' great! Love that engine. I'm using the same engine color on the Olds engine in my '40. Dual quads too.

Ok I'm sure I missed it but what color are you planning on painting the truck?

That engine is awesome! Great choice!

Truck is slowly getting closer to finish paint! I checked it out yesterday and I had to snap this picture while I was there.

There was a small chance but the paint work slowed down big time 3 weeks ago and killed that chance. Looks like I will be taking the 63 instead.

Wow LONG time since an update....

Mock up before paint and we hated the way you could see the tank and it was not centered. We fixed that later




Moved it to our shop


Gaps need fixing








Need to fix this


Shaved emblem but keeping the strip


My father behind the wheel for the first time




Sold the old fenders and got some new ones


Stock rear bumper was too large so we swapped it for a 37 Ford front bumper


Stripped back down for paint
