    Hi every body! My name is Egor. I am from Saint - Petesburg, Russia. Last 7 years were spend on building of my Gaz f-153. Actually, I ream about Ford f100 53-56, but is it real problem to foud in Russia, that's why I took old 3,5 tonns truck Gaz 53's cab, chassis from chevy Maliby and SBC 305 engine and mix... Now you can appreciate this.

    It is great to have HAMB members from Russia.
     
  3. Other than the odd front end, it really looks like a '53-55 Ford... Nice truck!

    Nice truck! It sure has the styling cues of the 53-55 F-100 right down to the fender well contours. I'm so used to seeing a F-100 grille that the Gaz grille really throws me off. It's like a Jeep Forward Control grille.

    I would love to hear the story of your build and the obstacles you had to overcome for it to turn out so nicely. Great job. I'd love to ride around in St. Petersburg and watch the reaction of the people on the street.

    OUTSTANDING WORKMANSHIP! Very impressive skills you have. I am supposing you also fabricated the rear fenders too. Thank you very much for posting this project and hope you will post more.

    It was really hard story. First of all it was my first experience of metal work and welding, and after fwd fenders which were modified from stock, I understand that have not sufficient skills for continue. I made the model of rear fender and depart my truck to local professional workshop. They spend alot of time for work with my Gaz. I visit work shop many times and work together with professionals. I am on last photo.

    That fender fabrication is even more impressive. I thought maybe you had made rear fenders from several front fender sections. Very nice work all around.

  27. When I look at this truck, I see a great example of what you can do with the materials that are at your disposal. Great truck and great pictures. Welcome to the H.A.M.B.
