I wonder if somebody have build a closed cab model a Pick up on a Ford Ranger or S10 chassis
No. Stay with a modified stock chassis or aftermarket boxed rails and all will be well.
Doing the other will tag you as a dink.
Thats a Negative!
Where are guys getting this idea that an S-10 chassis is a good platform for a 30's pickup? My current project (34 Ford PU) was so badly butchered by the previous owner's attempts to mount it on an S-10 frame that it will really never be restorable. To paraphrase Winston Churchill: "A dumb idea travels halfway around the world before a good idea can get its pants on."
Find an original frame in repairable condition, or buy an aftermarket frame, or build a frame yourself.
sombody take this guy out of his misery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well I think the signature describes what it will end up like if done.
If you really want it to look good put it on a 32 chassis. Here is some inspiration
No, but I'll buy that cab from you before you do something "Crazy Stupid". Please?
Yes. I saw one once and will never forget it. It looked terrible.
Yeah,it's been done and the results were less than stellar,,
Look's like sh*t! HRP
