Bay Area cars always seem to have a sanitary look that appeals to me, even when heavily modified.
This RPU has it....even with the deep channel. Bringing the cab and bed in parallel, makes this thing.
7" channel on a '29 and a full-height '32 grille, I love it. It looks right. I like the Lyon whitewall discs too, not sure I've seen them on a period pic like this before.
Notice the 32 tank in the rear. Very clean overall integrated looks.
Forgiving the nerf bar,I like everything about it.It is well thought out and pleasing to the eye.
Very Jeep like, especially the rear 3/4...cool
Probably channeled over a 32 frame, using the deuce fenders, tank, frame horn covers & grille shell.
As a pre teen, 1967 to 1969 I watched 1 of the 3 channels we had...
Saturday Night at the movies, Mom gave us 1/2 a paper cup of MnMs and 1/2 a paper cup of cocktail peanuts... I ate them watching the 1958 movie attack of the giant gilla monster... a B movie [or less] worst singing i have ever heard... but the kids all drove hot rods, they called them bombs, a T bucket, '32 roadster, '32 coupe, '40 coupe etc. ... the '32 roadster crashed into the monster with 4 jars of nitro on the seat... Gilla guts everywhere... I said then, I'm gonna have one of those climb in hot rods someday... in the summer of 1983 I did... a 1930 fenderless roadster pick up...
.... what hooked you ?
............ 1948 ford car brakes out front...
You might enjoy seeing that movie again on Youtube:

Nothing better than a channeled, full fendered Ford. What would the front brakes be on the RP ?
