    This is beautiful!

    Can you give me some details on what suspension you used and what wheels and tires you went with?

    This is awesome!

    Can you share what you did for the suspension and wheels and tires? I have a 51 F1 that I am trying to make a little more road friendly and am looking for suggestions.

    That one had a Mustang II front clip. I don't remember all the details on it, but I do know it sat very low and never scraped or bottomed out. Front was only about 4 inches off the pavement. Screen Shot 2018-03-28 at 9.02.21 AM.png
    The one I have now (below) sits lower than stock, but not in the weeds. Dropped I-beam axle, reversed rear eye springs, and 235 rear tires. I love how this one sits. It's running a 350, T-5, Ford 9", cast iron rams horns. Very usable.

    Just love your truck. Is that untouched original paint?

    Yes, except for the hood -- the louvers are punched in a replacement hood -- although I still have the original.

    That green Chevy flatbed was built by Jerry or Barry Michels (they are brothers , can't remember which) back in the early '70s. It was a very neat innovative machine.

    I think it was Barry. He was a Mohawk lift dealer, and I bought a lift from him some years ago. I also got to see his car collection when I was at his shop.:)
