    Great lookin p.u., love the stance. Good to see the F.E.'s coming into the picture, they can run very nice and produce some excessive wheel spin. I had a 42 Ford tu-door military car once, wish I would have left it O.D. and as found in military dress. Oh no, had to do my thing, hind sight is 20/20. Rock on with your cool ride. ~sololobo~

    Heres dome randoms from viva and this summer
     
  17. I like those fugly trucks.........wish I still had my old '47.
     
  18. Nice.
    I gotta ask:How does that set up work???
    I mean airbags with a dropped axle????
    Did you have to do a 4 link for the front??
    And with the kick up(step notch)in the rear how much can you haul,if you can add a hitch etc????



    The truck is nice I saw it at Viva.
     
  19. Its three linked up front and it is working out awesome so far, it rides nice and was cheaper than a mustang 2 front end.
     
  20. And as for strength on the rear of the frame im not sure, I plan to put a reciever hitch on so I can pull a teardrop trailer, and I think the plating and reinforcing ive done will suffice for a small trailer.
     
  21. I love the stance, and it looks perfect with no hood.

    Kinda diggin this one up from the grave, but how did it ride? That front notch looks kinda sketchy but if it worked I'm thinking of doing the same to my '46 instead of a chassis swap.

    Edit: I guess what I meant was how did you link the front end? Any pics of that?
