Picked up as a basket case and put together by me as it appears in these images. Kiwi Connection chassis with a SoCal ladder bar transverse leaf 9” rear suspension, later Ford bones up front with a SoCal front axle and spring and Ford spindles and hydraulic brakes, 327/TH350 combo acquired from 67 El Camino somone was swapping out for an LS drivetrain.. This ain’t no model A..!

    I may be just a tad biased, but I love me some Bastard Year Effies. :cool:

    Nice truck!

    Yeah, isn't that just as perfect as you can get?

    I gotta agree EM!
    Many trucks done this way rarely hit the mark with me.
    I know I'm not alone in my thinking but I challenge anyone to build one as tasteful and detailed as this one, the covered tailgate chains are a refreshing touch too.

    Pretty sure Hot Rods by Dean built that truck, but I don't know the owner. I saw it at GG Indy at the Speedway. It is tastefully restrained.

    I'm with you Doug. Often the proportions are off on this style of truck and/or color or other details are just "not for me". That didn't happen with this one! Of course, I'm immediately drawn to burgundy or similar colored cars and trucks.

    Thanks. I rescued it from a backyard and am slowly getting it where I want it. Would like to find solid wheels with chrome rings and ctr caps. Also need to lower the frt a little. My daily driver from April to November.

  29. Local guy is building a jailbird era ford car hauler, it was a big truck to start with but widened it even further, he added a foot of metal in there, now it looks chopped.
    He likes the 38 grills but also 33-36, so he just made his own ...ha ha he's doing a hell of a job on it I think. FB_IMG_1578973384656.jpg FB_IMG_1578973223070.jpg FB_IMG_1578973212298.jpg FB_IMG_1578973359553.jpg FB_IMG_1578973197892.jpg FB_IMG_1578973184123.jpg FB_IMG_1578973170304.jpg
