Thought I'd start a build thread on my '38 Dodge truck even though I've had it "built" for the past few years. I purchased it back in 2004 but really didn't start the build until 2007/2008. Looking back, I think I should have kept the original 251 flathead with the Edmunds 2x1 intake. At least for another project. The suspension is not "traditional" but it's what I choose for my type of driving and use. The goal was to have a vintage hot rod motor, full fender truck with upgraded frame and suspension. This is my first frame off build and I want to thank Bill and Jeff at the shop for helping me get it this far. I don't have near the amount of experience and talent as most of the guys on this site, but we all have to start some time. Pictures of the truck in it's white/yellow color are from 2008 when the mock up was complete. Pictures of the truck w/ black primer are more recent (this year). I'm going to post the pictures I have for now and will throw in some pics from when I first started. The motor I'm using for now is a used, stock 270 Dodge Hemi, just to get it running. I have another 270 block that's been machined and will be built for the 4-71 blower that's going on top. I'd like to run a 3x2 setup on top but just may use a 4 bbl as suggested. Quick thanks to 73RR and TR Waters for their knowledge and help on this motor build. The 4-71 still needs the drive kit (need to finish measurments). Still 50/50 on the stock water pump vs. SBC water pump kit. Stock radiator will be rebuilt/resized to make it work with this setup.
