  2. You would be welcome. You simply need to let me know before you come to be certain I am here.

    Here's mine: 1946 Chevy 2 ton. Was an Indiana farm truck with a grain bed, 160" WB.
    has 33k miles. 2 speed axle (slow and slower) & duel wheels. It's now a 134 WB so I can put a 9' bed on it and it will still be only ~ 18' long and fit in a garage.
    Original 235 was long gone when I got it, so I now have a rebuilt 261 that came out of my parts truck and a Clark 5 speed OD trans (from a fellow HAMB member) with a PTO for the dump bed. It's tucked away warm and dry for now until I can get back to it and finish it up..... couple other projects to finish up first but maybe by next year...…
    I can't wait to put it to work!

  5. No don't have any extra 22.5 wheels. I bought the bus and metro at a estate sale. The guy had moved here from Indiana and drove them to southern Mo years ago. I did not get any titles for them. The transmission and driveshaft and rear end is still in the bus. I still have the radiator. the hood was sold long ago. Ive been storing parts in it. I moved the bus and metro with my old 64 chevy 3/4 wrecker.

    That looks more like a 71 or 72 GMC to me, Old Wolf. Could have a different front clip I guess, but I thought all 67's were small back window?

    I'd love to come visit, too. It'd be neat if Anthony and I could get together when it gets warmer and head up that way.

  8. Nope its a 67. any small window of that body style is a 67. However a large back window could be had in 67 it was a option.

    Stumbled across this eBay item (Oakland CA). Maybe you could have seller throw in the shoebox, convert to a ramp truck, to carry the shoebox to cruise nights. 8881033473_154176d8a0_b - Copy_zpsl9gbvzit.jpg

    I think it would be a better tow vehicle for a TROG racer!

  26. I rescued his jail bar a couple years ago. It was headed for scrap iron.
    It's available if someone needs one.

    Has anyone here ever seen a “ Okay” truck? They were made in a little town of Okay, in Muskogee, Oklahoma , in the early 1900s. Would like to see one or even buy one. Would like any pictures of one also. Thanks in advance,

    I made some progress today. I cleaned up the welds and moved the cab back up where it mounts. I am hoping that in the next few weeks I will be able to get the fenders, radiator and hood mounts figured out. This is a 76 class C that I narrowed and put on the dodge 34 frame.
