    Side shot of my 36. Those discs are ones I got personally from Dean Moon in 1981-82. He told me they were from the Moonbeam. They were wrapped in newspapers from 1964. They still had salt stuck on the insides.

    More assembly needed. Gotta check out wheel clearances
    after installing new rear and springs. Then I can order the rear wheels
    Next we have to repair two of the running board brackets,
    Luckily the metal is rust free and very clean.
    Except the rears.......very solid but they have many small "bumps".
    Any one have a solid set?
    Will add pics along the way.

    I love these trucks. The low cabs are perfect the way they are. Man these bring back memories. I road a many miles in my dads as a kid. He sold it years ago and we kept track of it for years. A feiend had it a few months ago. He offered it to me but I am so deep in my current project it would have been a bad move on my part. Man you guys make me second guess myself. Thanks for the pics and my walk down memory lane.

    Skippy - "Bob" Does that mean how much we cut off? It was about one stake
    pocket width. If that is what you meant I will measure my bed length

    Looks good so far. Can't wait to see more.
     
  26. Mikel, as far as I know, neither of those mascots ate correct. Trucks came with flat radiator caps, I used one from a 34 Chevy car on my truck, although it always seemed to look a bit gaudy i have since filled in the radiator hole and it looks much cleaner. The 34 cap had what looked likea swan or something with its tail swooping down to the cap base and its wings peaked to the sky, ok for a car but not for a truck. Just fill andpeak thegrille shell and save yoiself some cash. Mitch.

    Here are a few pictures of mine. I drive it while I am building it. I want your back fenders.... WHat are they off of?

    Also I am probably gonna get an old steel cooler, and mount that in the bed for a battery box.

    If you dont mind, whats your wheel base? and how long is your bed?
