  4. Go for it. That way you won't have a cookie cutter vehicle. What is OT about it ?

    Those were a Premium Truck in their day.The dash and the header panel are a work of art.To call it OT seems a little short sighted.I would love to see what Jeems could pen up.

    An extended or super cab version of the blue one would be realy cool. It would give more room in the cab & shorten the bed, giving it a WOW factor........probably more nonsense than .02 cents.....but.....

    Cool. Yay.
    The headlights are already lowered. You're halfway there. That leaves you enough time to extend the cab a little, weld on the rear end of an old Mopar or something to make it a big fat coupe, and build a chopped Cabriolet roof. :D

    Good luck with it, flattie!

  16. The cab and trim are a work of art.
    I'm thinking 1 ton pick up in the future.
    The grille is does not belong on this truck,it's for a smaller truck but I will try to make it fit and look good.

    Yes from me . It looks like good bones for a project.
    Trucks 2 ton and larger are OT (off topic ) on the main board. I had pictures of my 1 1/2 ton 42 Chevy deleted off the main board. That's how I know . I didn't point out that the truck was a 1 1/2ton . The moderators can get testy.
    1 1/2 ton trucks and larger are welcome here on the Antiquated

    I'm a fan of big trucks, hence my screen name 5150 (CA W&I code for crazy and 4 bat (big ass trucks). I understand no large trucks on the main board. I wish it wasn't the case but not my site, not my rules.
    I'd kill for a short wheel base 39-47 Ford COE but I don't think a divorce is a good idea right now.

    Mine the rendering above is useing the stock frame, and but all suspension from 1 ton square body dually, so it’s a 1 ton.

    I like the grille and swoopy fenders on the earlier models but I like the cab and window openings on looks chopped already
