I'll start, my buddy just built this one in 2 weeks.
Natural patina too.
sob. still miss it.
The wires on the Chevy really set that truck off. I love that.
2 of mine
A former goat farm truck, 58 Apache
A former wrecking yard car pusher, 49 F-1
My 48 Chevy.
My old 'Tater Truck'. One of those "shoulda kept the 'ol gal" vehicles.
Cool thread thus far, keep it going!
Little A-C Model B there, too! I had a '38, s/n 1734. First year of production. It got traded off, and eventually I ended up with my '37 Terraplane.
Straight from the barn, to the garage, A 454 & a TH400, and away we go.
If a day goes by i dont miss that truck, i must be thinking about something worse.
Here are a few around my "farm"
some cool trucks
heres mine, runs and drives great,doesnt smoke at all, idles perfect, im getting it registered again in a week, i got it from a barn sat for 60 years... so much fun! once she blows, its gunna be a fendered hotrod.
pandragger.....is that the six in it or an eight, how did he build that thing road worthy in two weeks! it nice, love it, was it already a running truck?
Heres what I've been workin on
'50 1-ton: this one is in process, getting a 392 hemi+NV4500 trans+dana70 rear, stretched 18", maybe dropped a couple of inches, but otherwise pretty stock looking.
'53 3/4 ton, green in background, bought from Povertyflats about 5 years ago off ebay (he is the pusher that started my Stude truck addiction - his fault). Pretty much stock, but with dual carbs. Running on propane.
As it was:
As it is:
Heres my old girl as she was a couple of months ago. It's winter here at the moment and that deck is my kindling for the fire. The rest of her is in the garage getting a bit of loving.
the truck was a non running stocker thats been sitting on the farm since the 70's. now after 2 weeks of long, long days the 3 man crew at weld county installed a 383/700r4 combo, front stub, 12bolt, baggged it, ect, ect. it's a bad ass little farm truck that had a huge crowd around it all weekend at goodguys colorado.
That's alovely truck, looks sweet sitting down all that way
In it's previous life it was a horse hauler.
And this guy is still in pieces...
I sure do miss the bass boat seats and green shag carpet inside it
Here's mine. It's a 42 Studebaker.
I'm a big fan of the farm/shop truck look. Mine have been posted here before but here they are again. The yellow 57 I have now and the 52 I sold last year.
here is ours.
Here are a few that see regular use on the farm.
And here is one that hasn't gotten used yet. (Well except when the kids pretend that they are the Beverly Hillbillies)
