Well I'm just getting started on my pilothouse build and wanted to share with you guys what I've done so far and see what ya think. I started with a 1950 dodge pilothouse pickup with a marketside bed, pretty rare bed, most had the tall knox style bed, so this is a little different. It also helps to beautify an otherwise kinda ugly pickup, but I love her anyway. I bought a 94 dodge dakota chassis and pulled the rearend out and stuffed a huge 12 bolt in it out of a 71 caddy, it has the exact same measurements as the original rearend had, and then to get around the 6 lug bolt pattern on the front, I bought front hubs from a 1988 dakota and was as simple as unbolting the old ones and bolting the 5 bolt rotors back on which got me back to a 5 on 4 1/2 ford bolt pattern. I then stripped the sheet metal off the original frame and mounted everything on the dakota chassis and have what you see today. I'm ready to mount the motor and tranny in it and am trying like hell to get her to the Lone Star Roundup in April. I will post more progress as I get further along.
