    Paint can not go fast enough on this truck. I can not wait to put this thing together. I have been staring at parts forever dreaming of them coming together.

    Lookin' great! Love that engine. I'm using the same engine color on the Olds engine in my '40. Dual quads too.

    Ok I'm sure I missed it but what color are you planning on painting the truck?

    That engine is awesome! Great choice!

    Truck is slowly getting closer to finish paint! I checked it out yesterday and I had to snap this picture while I was there.

    There was a small chance but the paint work slowed down big time 3 weeks ago and killed that chance. Looks like I will be taking the 63 instead.

    Wow LONG time since an update....

    Mock up before paint and we hated the way you could see the tank and it was not centered. We fixed that later

    Yikes, that is a good looking ride. Seriously that is some great work there. Cant help with the mirror, mines a 50 and is bolted to the center w/s divider. Love the bed wood, looks great with the shiny black paint.

  27. Can't belive I have not see this build before.....Very nice work guys and the paint is killer. Best is the motor....I love it...soooooo kool. I am building a 54 also. this is the third time around for it as I have owned it for 40+ years. frame is same as done and like yours all but I used a ten bolt chev rear and used a Heitz front set up. I am running a small block chev with a 350 transmission. Getting ready to do paint on it now. Your post has pumped me up on getting mine done...Thank's
