    Takes me back. Built a very similar styled 36 pu back in '63-64, only reworked the original frame and ran a 324" Olds.

  10. Looks great. I personally think the 32 shell looks fine. When you chopped it, did you lean the windshield back? I was having trouble figuring out what exactly you did. I plan on chopping mine 2-3 inches sometime soon

    Looks great! Open wheel trucks are a slick way to build a cool hot rod.

    Could you please post a interior pic of your mounted brake/clutch pedal assembly? I am in a very similar situation using ansen style pedals on a '36 cab. Truck looks awesome

    I think it's coming out awesome. I could be biased though. I have 36 Dodge open wheel and love it.

    I like this build - you're doing a great job! I would love to do something similar using a 1940's-era cab.
