My 48 on a S-10
I'm new to the AD truck group.. I picked this up a couple month's ago..52 Chevy 3100..
I've already redone most of the mill, and swapped the wheel's and tire's.. Plan's this winter are for a complete tear down and rebuild, it will still pretty much look similar, but there's a lot of stuff that need's to either be done, or redone to make it right..
When spring come's, it'll be my daily from then on out.....then again, i've been driving it every day already since i got it back running.
This is a picture of my work in progress, 47 GMC converting to an s-10 frame, everything is just mocked up right now except the bed its just sitting on there so i can fit it in the garage!
I'm going to try and put a picture here of my 50 Chevy pickup with DeSoto quarter panels and 46 Chevy car grill and 54 Buick headlights with 50 Merc front bumber and 53 Chrysler Imperial rear bumper...
I'm sure I missed the details on this truck in the past, but I have searched with no success. Does anyone have more info on it, particularly the amount it was channeled?
Here's mine on stock frame Mustang II up front, notched in back. 350 5 speed. Cool truck needs a little work to make it pretty, but definitely fun.
Here's mine with 350 5 Speed Mustang II front, notched rear. Not pretty, but fun!
Was that a short-box S10 frame or did you start with a long-box AD?
Now with a hood.
here is my 50.
Just got this one.
My 51 Its gonna be a while before I get to drive it but it will be worth it.
This is my 49 drinking buddy. 70's Camaro sub. 350/350. It's got a little nud nuddin cam. I keep it so I can drive it back and forth and do a little here and a little there between beers. Going to get a set of matching wheels tonight. Maybe the next time I post a picture the cab will be rattle can black too.......the Yorange bed is growing on me..
I drove it down the street last week and posed in front of this guys garage
Here's mine. I finished it about 15 years ago. Looks pretty outdated with the old Cragers and Radial T/As I guess?
I HAVE TO HAVE MORE INFO ON THE PANEL!!! YOU BASTARD, you copied... well, what I wanted to do... damn it I suck again!
That panel is with out a doubt one of the sweetest things I have ever seen! I have a 53 GMC that I have been building since '99, and I am only 26 so you know i started early! Do you have build log or at lest a good set of photos of the inside and out of this thing?
Well heres mine
50' chevy ex-US Air Force truck 9" rear with 4-bar and QA-1 coilovers up front 3" drop axle with posie 3" springs. Power by a trusty 235 with clifford 4barrel intake with a 500 Edelbrock, home built s.s. headers going straight threw daul 1 3/4" straights and a hei dizzy.Soon to get a T-5 tranny and maybe a 54' 261 I just p/u.
350/700r4/3.73 4 barrel, 4 disks, 4 speed, 4 bags, 4 link, Must II, Original wood with stock bed height.
Bump this thread for the end of the year. Heres my '52, bought it 10 years ago and its been sitting in the garage like this for 8 years now. Trying to get motivated to finish it.
Here's my '48 two weeks ago before it was dragged out of it's resting place, it's now on a longbed regular cab S-10 chassis. I'll get some recent pics when I get to work today.
Here's a shot of mine.
My daily driver "BillyBob" - stock except for 12v electrics w/alternator and radiator overflow tank. Also took a 23 day, 4,700 mile roadtrip in it last june on two-lane blacktop for the most part.
Neat truck. How about some more pics?
Here's a couple more...........Flipper asked.
Hey Gecko54 how about a couple pictures of your rear suspension?
Here you go. Rear suspension and one of the bed front panel.
How about making it so we can enlarge these pics? They seem to be pics of nice work but with all the squinting i have to do....I can't make it out! Thanks.
ahhh shut up!~
