I am a new member and thought that I would share with you my project. I inherited a 1952 Dodge 1/2 ton short bed pickup last Thanksgiving from my brother-in-law. It had been sitting out in the weather at his place in Beatty Oregon since 1990 but had literally no rust since the climate is so dry there. It is in the process of a frame off restoration and I have all the painted body parts back and it is going together at this time. I have decided to go back with a warmed over small block Mopar and a Torqueflite transmission. (I realize that I will hear from some for not keeping it stock) I have included a few pictures for your viewing pleasure. The engine that you see "sitting" in the frame is being used for mock up purposes only and will be replaced soon. Please overlook the wheels and tires that are on it at this time as they are super ugly. I soon will have all my original extra parts posted in the classified in the HAMB classified if you have an interest. Will keep you updated as progress is being made.
