Awesome build, I love the Nailhead!
Looking good, always wanted to put my nailhead in one of these trucks!
It has been WAY too long since progress has been made on the truck! Our builder was busying doing house work trying to sell off a property and could not get to the truck. This week we are finally back on it! Last time any work was done was back in August. Today we started staining the oak wood for the bed. We are matching the copper color on the engine
Love it, and love this build thread archive too!! Nice job, keep the pics coming. And yes, my inner fender bolted directly too the firewall/floor. I remember cussing while I was inside turning the wrench and the nut was turning outside!
Sweet build. Also doing a 54. Any of those shels in the garage for sale?
I might buy some of them one day, but right now I don't think he needs to get rid of anything.
Finally seeing some progress on the 54! The firewall has been cleaned up. Tons of holes filled to smooth it out. Also filled some holes in the cowl from mirrors and antennas over the years. Still waiting on the motor to be finished but it should be soon. Complete mock up coming soon! Can't wait to see this thing in paint.
Lookin' great, you guys will be cruzin in no time, keep it up!
Sorry, I'm not digging the wheels......
Neither am I but it is my Dad's truck and he likes them. Maybe he will see the light when they go on the car.
Nailhead back from machining! Only took 11 months haha. Time to mock up everything
Not as bad on this side
Still some room left
Some hood pieces together
Trans cover being worked on
Seat is back from upholstery
the engine is beauty , looks good sitting between the rails , nice work on the seat , looks like a fun ride coming together
Wow, this little pick-up is going to be a beast! Is your dad going to be able to handle that, or are you going to have to show him "how to drive it' LOL, lookin good bro
Carbs came in today and we added the copper mesh to the air cleaners and threw them on top. Looks GREAT
Dang man, things are lookin good! Love the dual carbs...

Motor is bolted together with all the gaskets for the last time and the headers are at coating. Finishing up running the A/C lines and then it is time for paint.
Firewall is painted and we put the engine back in for the last time.
