A customer new to the shop approached us about this build a few months before the Roundup. He had seen a '35/6 pickup somewhere (magazine, online) and decided he wanted us to build one for him. Trouble was he didn't have one. We looked around and passed on a couple rough ones, finally landing on this guy. The truck showed up the week of Roundup (early April) and was parked to wait it's turn. It seemed to be a solid truck almost ready to hit the road as is. We quickly discovered that it had been hastily thrown together to sell though, missing a lot of hardware and many pieces just barely hanging on. No matter since this was going to be a ground up build. The truck was completely disassembled and sent out for blasting. What came back was a very nice frame, a CHERRY cab and bed, and some fenders with quite a bit of damage that was hiding under a lot of filler. We got to work on the chassis first. It's very standard...9" rear end with Pete & Jakes ladder bars and a Posies 2-1/2" dropped spring out back, a Chassis engineering center X-member replacement setup incorporating split bones and a new trans mount in the middle, and a Magnum dropped axle with split '37-'41 wishbones and another Posies dropped spring up front. The only real extra work was some fabricated pieces to reinforce the X-member with a pass-through for the exhaust.
