Well I figure it's about time to post up a build thread on my '34 truck I've been workin' on. Give a little back to the HAMB. It takes time to post this stuff up (for me anyway...), and I give thanks to all of the folks that do take the time share their projects here. I had been actually looking for a shoebox to build, something to have a roof over my head for off weather. I have subjected my bare metal roadster to it's share of rain and really need to knock it off. The roadster deserves better. You know how it is when you're looking for a particular project vehicle, they're not to be found. Any other time, they're everywhere. At least that's how it seems. So while I'm searching for a shoebox, with no luck, my mind starts to wander....'you know, I could really build a '32...3...4 truck, that'd be nice too'. Now the truck cab hunt starts. Again, not to be found when you're lookin', damn it boy! But, I did run across a whole truck that was in Oklahoma City. It was a ton and a half, looooong wheel base. It was a two owner truck, just a tad less than 19,000 miles on it, complete except for a bed. Actually still had the key in it. The old gent that owned it bought it from the original owner, used it on his own farm for years. He was gonna restore it, but had a heart attack before he could get started. A truck restoration was the least of his worries, it had to go. So off I go, to where the wind comes sweeping down the plain. I figure...'shoot, 19,000 miles, that shouldn't be too bad for wear, even for an old farm truck'. It initially looked pretty decent, but as you'll see from the build pictures, the sheet metal had its problems. Hey, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Let's get to the build and some pics. Here she is comin' home on the trailer. On the way home, I got to swing by my buddy Jack (yblock292) Marinelli's place. Got to check out his hot rod stable, stay the night, and enjoy some brews. Then swung into the HAMB Drags 'tween there and home. Funny how that timin' worked out. Time to get to work, get the cab off o' that baby. The ol' 4x4 and the engine hoist, great cab lift.
