it's been about a year and a half since i pulled the cab and nose off the caterpillar tractor hauler. i jammed on it last week so i could get it outside for the annual greenwood car show that runs on the street in front of my shop for about a mile. our car club, the greenwood knights, ran it this year and raised a good chunk of cash for the local food bank. still have some wiring and misc crap to do. the frame is '52 chevy 1 ton. front crossmember is '87 chevy 1/2 ton which is a bolt on, other than being narrowed 1.5". 3" dropped spindles, PS, PB, '88 350, edelbrock intake and carb, headers, 700R4, '88 suburban rear end, rear fenders are made from a pair of extra fronts, cut along the peak, 5 1/2" added on the inside, 7" cut from the center, and a new wheel well lip hammered out over a plywood buck and welded on. probably 30' of welding on each fender. the bed and running boards are made from scratch in 12ga steel. bumpers are repop '49 chevy pickup rears, with the rear one narrowed 7". wheels are 20" 2007 tahoe/suburban with a custom machined DT hubcap insert to cover the bow tie. the rusty one is what i started with.
