Features Finally done

Discussion in 'Traditional Customs' started by MoparMan4GZUZ, Aug 10, 2023.

  1. I haven’t been on here in years, but when I was, I had posted a lot of the progress of the build on my 53 Dodge truck. It’s finally done so I thought I would share some pictures of it with you.

    Nice little rig. Pretty sure you won't park by another one at the car show.

    Wow, that really looks good.
    Seriously, very nice.

    So you haven't been hanging around here much for a while, huh? Well, I guess that proves it. If I spent less time on the hamb, I'd probably get more done.

    Aahhh... f that.

    :D

    I like it, but I might be a bit biased. I have a 49 Dodge pickup.
    How much did you chop the top?
     
  22. Turned out great! Thanks for the update! :cool:
     
  23. I chopped it 4” and lowered the top of the windshield frame another 1 1/2” to get the openings even all the way around.

    Nice looking truck for sure.
    How about some details on engine, etc. Also, what did you do to run the 6 lug wheels?
