I've been around the HAMB for a little while, & have had several different ideas & half-assed starts on my '46 Stude M5 pick-up truck project. Everything from a steel wheeled, wide whites & hot rod- raked cruiser to a nose high straight axled would-be gasser. But nothing ever panned out as far as actually getting motivated to build the damned truck. After posting about going the gasser route w/ it back in '06, Chili Phil made a comment to me that really stuck in my head... "A '46 Stude deserves a better fate than to become a poser gasser." Thank you, Chili Phil- I think you were absolutely correct. So, I finally figured out what the fate of the truck was gonna be a few months back, & have been getting at least a little something done to it on a regular basis..... '69 F350 rolling chassis, shortened to 120" wheelbase Ford 300 six cylinder, 5 speed Stretching the bed 10" or so Big-truck fenders (2" wider & have larger openings for the tires) Paint will be flat brown I'm gonna try to keep it pretty simple- no power windows, fancy paint, tilt GM column, or high $$$$ tech stuff. The 300 I have for it has EFI, but other than that, I'm gonna try to stick w/ the "old work truck" feel & look. I guess now it kinda falls into the "shop truck" genre. Not sure if it "belongs" on the HAMB anymore, but I figured I'd post up some info & see what some of you guys & ladies think.
