    Thank you Jon, I called you about a year or so ago. I am the guy with the 1938 Plymouth Truck in San Diego. I am building it buy buying pieces one at a time.... Sigh

    Seems like the guys who build street rods find complete trucks to cut up. To bad I wasn't that lucky! LOL

    I guess if you want to do a all original restoration, you have to take a beating financially.

    Here is my 46 Ford Hot Rod truck that I call a traditional build with rat flavor. It is budget built running a mild 500+ Cadillac engine/TH350/3.25 ratio 9 inch. Truck is fairly docile on the street yet is capable of mid 10's on the track. I usually keep it around 11 flat because of no bars but it runs straight and true and is a dream to drive. I am kind of an old guy now so this may be my last build, but it has been my most fun and my first "Hot Rod Pickup". y1.jpg e3c50817998e4555ad1d12b1e38e2909.jpeg
