    Unreal build man.. I look at your trucks body and wish mine was even close to yours! I paid twice as much for my 55' r100 and it needs more patches than a punk rockers vest. Awesome work so far, you're for sure putting awesome work into this thing.

    so you had to fab engine and tranny mounts? I have been thinking of updating my 1950 l120 with a swap, any idea what engine tranny would work with current drive train. really just want to cruise on the interstate at comfortable speeds.

    Thanks! You should stop by and say hi one of these weekends. Bring one of your jalopys.

    I still owe you a favor for helping me with the '51.

    Very nice!

    I've wondered if there is a way to put the fenders, hood, and grill off one of these big IH trucks on a pickup or Travellall? The cabs look similar.[​IMG]

    That's an r180 or r190 I think they made them into the late 60s I personally would like to do an overgrown pickup truck with one of those, keep the big wheels and frame and build a large pickup bed on the back. Maybe add power from a big ford or chevy or some kinda diesel and if you wanted to modernize it you could maybe use running gear from a newer school bus or something. But granted I know a lot of us don't have the big tools or garages for these tyoe trucks. I am wanting to do the pickup thing with a mack b series or old autocar. with that there would not be many limits with what you could pull or haul

    I love this truck... I'm still building up the courage to modernize an old chassis. Good job.

    This is exceptional work and by far my favorite classic truck build. I just aquired a '55 R-110 myself and i'd be thrilled if it comes out half as cool. The body on mine is twice as rough and I paid a bit more than you did for yours, oh well.

    That color is perfect too. Matter of fact when looking around for color inspiration for my binder and I found a roadster with a similar color that really caught my eye, just a little more gray. Thanks for posting a detailed build of the frame work. I will be using a bag setup and your photos will come in handy come time for mock-up.

    You used the original rear end?
    also the X-member used was the 24" to 30" outside frame widths universal kit?

    Sorry to pester with questions just trying to get a parts list going and if you've already done it so well, why waste time researching any more.

    Hey I really appreciate all the comments, Thanks!

    On the radiator: It is a Northern Aluminum with trans cooler (this exact one....http://www.kmjent.com/cart/gm-chevy-26-x-19-aluminum-radiator-w-oil-cooler.html )
    I fabbed the mounting brackets out of some raw aluminum I had and tigged them on.

    Rear end is in fact the original Dana 44 that came in the R-100. 4.11, but I may go to 3.73 down the road for cruising.

    It was the wider Heidt's crossmember I used and made sure to weld it a little bit higher on the frame than they suggested to get it to lay frame when aired out.
