I had a shimmer of doubt run down my leg when I saw you roughing in the shell...but it blasted through with show-worthy gleam! Just outstanding...Goes with the truck!
Really justifies the old adage: "Black is Beautiful..."
I took this at the Toronto Motorama last night.
The truck looks awesome. Congratulations.
The truck was at the Toronto Auto Rama show last weekend (March 9/10/11) and is currently at the Cleveland Piston Power show.
If any of you are out there go have a peak and meet Keith from Binbrook Speed & Custom shop.
Here are a few pics from an admirer. T Neville
I saw it at the Cleveland show ,
Awesome truck !!!
Seems there was some trash in the back bed box though.
Not sure if that was from moving in or some idiot attendees
It's got the spot right at the door. Very first vehicle everyone sees.
Congratulations @'37-4D good luck at the shows and spring has almost sprung so get out and let her breathe......Nice Hotrod
Thx Stogy....I can't wait, a few things left to do and we are a go!
Back at it finally this week, she will be on the road up and running very soon!!!!!
I've said it many times in this thread, that thing is just plain Sexy!. Great Job man.
Truck came out beautifully! Love the exhaust!
It will also dump behind the cab to the side, running mufflers under and invisible plugs in the outer exhaust
Pics soon! We are a week and a half away
Plated, insured, working on wiring along with a few bits!
My man Keith from Binbrook speed and custom shop‘s talent featured here in Canadian Hot Rods magazine.
His little ‘27 T Coupe sporting an Olds Rocket and my ‘37 Ford pick up with a 348 made the headlines!!!
On another note, she's all carpeted and the interior panels have been installed.
Just waiting on a few last little things and she'll be on the road (crossing my fingers) any day now!!!
My first time witnessing the motor being fired up in the truck!
Ran into a defective clutch kit part, should be on the road soon
First test drive.....
And a few photos:
Thanks for sharing the adventure it's been a great summer of cruising weather. Nice Hotrod and congrats on the press...
@'37-4D just an observation about your first drive out video. I noticed the Grille/Rad setup shaking back and forth perhaps partially due to road surface but similar to my rad support bars yours are bent or have a joggle. This may be to clear the air cleaners but if they were straight with no bends the shaking may be quite reduced or possibly eliminated due to a more defined triangle.
I have been meaning to make a set of straight ones for mine but I have to relocate the aft support higher on the cowl. I did do a check on mine and there is room to relocate and run straight supports so just a thought about something I notice on my ride similar to yours.
I have really liked the exhaust you chose for this. Truck came out beautifully!
Absolutely!!! this is one of the small issues we were aware of. It will be either what you said or a couple of support bars, one welded at the bend and one further up. Not sure yet. Keith will figure it out. There is definitely some road shake but this needs to be addressed. Thx
Thank you @brEad
They were custom and I had no input in them at all, Lol, they were the creation of my friend Keith of Binbrook Speed & Custom
A few videos sent to me from it's original first drive.
Turn volume on LOUD
Note: This is with the headers plugged and dumping out the side rear of the cab
A couple more live media shots:
*Note: that is not the bike you can hear accelerating!!
