Projects 41 Chevy pickup build with my son & grandson

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Fullblast, Jul 18, 2020.

  1. We are starting a new project, 1941 truck. Got a free cab and mock-up motor & trans.
    Building frame from 2x4 tube, dropped A axle (that my friend Doctor Gofaster and I did) split bones, and 88 camaro rear on leafs, so far turned out pretty good. thumbnail_IMG_20200509_160259606.jpg thumbnail_IMG_20200516_190433678.jpg thumbnail_IMG_20200610_194520508.jpg thumbnail_IMG_20200613_172049584.jpg thumbnail_IMG_20200620_114324521_HDR.jpg thumbnail_IMG_20200509_160259606.jpg thumbnail_IMG_20200516_190433678.jpg thumbnail_IMG_20200610_194520508.jpg thumbnail_IMG_20200613_172049584.jpg thumbnail_IMG_20200620_114324521_HDR.jpg

  2. My son wanted the dirt-track wheels and tires, we cut out the floor{ mostly gone anyway} and channeled the cab, I made the floor supports in the last pic, and pulled it out to do the welding, I think it will sit pretty low.

    He has since changed his mind on the Dirt track tires, now has some skinny ones in front, drives better. Still work to do, Bed floor, change the seat to something lower profile, maybe front panhard. but is a driver for now.

  14. Update!!
    Wanting more power and a BBC, He bought a 468ci BBC, had to do a bigger recess for the dizzy and cut the motor mounts out, test fitting shows it will clear the master cylinder, and the rad/grill will have about 1/2 inch of clearance.
    Question, where do you connect for the oil pressure? Its not like a SBC.
