    VERY cool truck Big Eddie. Tell us more!

    The '47 I'm building for my wife will sit nearly identical to yours. How is yours built? Camaro clip? What size tires are you running?

    Hey Thanks for the compliments. Little specs on the truck....Nova subframe, 12 bolt posi Camaro rear end with 3.73 gears, 350/TH350, tire sizes are 195-75-15 front & 225-??-15. I'd have to check to make sure on the rear size. My plan is to go a little lower in the rear.

    Tucked up did you bag this truck if so did you just notch the rear frame or do a full back half. I noticed it does not set on the boards. But it sets good enough for me.

    my brother has a 54 Chevrolet he bought as a basket case. We have been working on it for a year now... Parts are not easy to find, and when you find it they are expensive, His truck has the "granny" four speed transmission and we are going to swap it for an automatic so we can install an open drive shaft and higher geared rear end. The granny wide ass open only runs 50mph. Gotta love that ugly 54 Chevrolet grill...the 53 looks tons better.

    I've clipped the wife's truck with a Camaro front with discs and power steering. The rear is from a Trans Am, disc brakes with a set of 2.88's! Should be a freeway flier, and a safe/solid driver for her!

    Thanks for the info. Looks like thats the perfect tire size for the stance and look she wants. Are they Cokers? Diamondbacks?

    The guy told me they were Cokers...but all they say on them is American Classics. I checked the sizes again to confirm...
    front 195-75-15
    rear 225-75-15

    Just notched the rear frame. It will lay the boards but the exhaust under the boards won't let it.
