    Your last batch of pics were really freaking small...that's a pretty badass idea to make a pickup from a 4 door, how are you going to finish the back of the cab inside the "bed"?...

    Probably just roll some steel have to see how the frame all goes and then play it from there really thinking some type of tonneau cover in the end though.

    Oh, and that looks really similar to my '31 Mopar 4 door (I call it a Plymouth)...does the beltline along the back under the window have a slight upward arch to it?...

    I can tell you for sure it's not a '27...my best guess is '30 or '31...
     
  9. Looking good. Johnny when you dropping that old mopar off at shop?

    you should have made a pickup cab out of it, then welded up a bed out of sheet metal.... or took a later model bed like a 48 and cut that up to make a bed. just a thought.

    Looks great so far!
    I was looking at your Chev at the Garden City show in September. If I'd known you were a HAMBer I'd have introduced myself.

    Nice job.While you are at it you could lengthen the front doors.I found the 4 doors are shorter than the 2 doors.It makes getting in and out a lot easier.I took a 32 Ford pickup,extended the cab 12 inches with a 10 inch side window,fabed a 29 model A sedan back half to it and finished off like a Ute .Had a ball with that one.I like what you are doing.

    IIRC, Chrysler had wire wheels in '28, Plymouth still had the wood in '29...

    If you put a seat back there it'd be a tub coupe. Freaky.

    You ought to consider finding a mopar coupe trunk section and making that thing an actual coupe. It's got great proportions.

    good luck!

    So got a little done on the frame seems that as I built a new shop I have less time to work on my own stuff lately lol

    First I had to gut the floor out of the car.

    The start of the frame

    I originally had the rails strait but changed that as I wanted to channel the car and need to lower my seats in the frame rails if need be.

    What was wrong with the original frame that it needed replacing?
