    Picked up a 40 sedan a few months back.
    I have my Gasser Sedan so this is gonna be a reliable driver for the fam, with a traditional look.

    Plans:
    Lowered, Chevy 348 W motor, overdrive, 9in ford, dropped axle.
    Early 60’s vibe:

    I don't get the "Truckster build" part in your title. The car and your plans sound great, just don't get the title.

    Nice 40. Less is more, I like your ideas. Leave it mostly stock looking with modern power and brakes. Win Win in my book.
