This truck is awesome. Does anyone have more pictures of it?
Really don’t know anything about this hot rod seen at Moss Point Mississippi during Cruisn’ the Coast but a coat of paint would turn it into a very nice car.
Well after 15 pages I think it is safe to say, were there abbreviated, fender less pickups built before 1964? Yes, there were. Do 75% of the trucks pictured represent that build era? No, they don't! Would I drive the HELL! out of 90% of them? Yes, I would!!! lol Larry
H.A.M.B. friendly bobber? 5” chop 3” channel , bed shortens 10” 49, 303
A full custom ‘35 IHC I’m building
Looks like Hot Rod to me!
Sometimes the line between bobber and r.r. Is thin
A gold chainer sees a rr…a young low buck kid sees a Hot Rod!
as long as it doesn't have stupid saw blades and wrenches etc it's a hot rod to me too.
Wouldn't this have been considered a "Bobber" if the term had been around in "the day"? Paint is fancier, but basically meets the definition as far as open wheels and shortening and weird suspension.........
Looks like a 35 or 36, as 37 has a split windshield
Acquiring some quick patina!
Who said they didn’t build them “back in the day”
Yes, it's a slippery slope...
1935 Ford under construction. Going to use original grill.
I like that one; it has nice proportions.
I wonder how many minutes it takes before my Lone Ranger picture is deleted. Oh the hell with it I won't show it. Just the Studebaker engine.
Nice. Are you trying to start a fire with that unclamped red crap on the pressure side of the fuel pump?
When I bought the Rocky33 my dad and I drove over to bring it home. His buddy Jerome had a VERY similar truck in the early 60s so yes, they were around
Looking for the picture but I was up near Grandon WI about 25 years a go at a garage sale and a guy had burried in a shed a built in the 50's 37 Dodge that was channeled no fenders on the front and what looked like trailer fenders on the rear and had a 331 or 354 hemi in it wiht 2x4s and was running a 57 or so olds rear . The bed was about 4 feet long or so . I dont know what trans had a straight axle in it wiht no drop sitting high in the front with really skinny slot mags in the front and wide steels in the rear and some really old slicks . ran I think a 34 or 5 doge grill . the fire wall that sticks out on these was ugely as sin.
I doubt it was very attractive when it was being run but It certainly fit the time frame and all that of here . I asked if it would be for sale and he said maybe after he died .
I was up there 5 years ago and the shed and truck was gone so im guessing he died .
I do have a picture of it some were . I always wondered what the engine had done to it .
Id drive this one
From “ back in the day!”
Work in progress…super slick log manifold!
