    I just opened hamb up and my watch thread showed this. I said to myself "that's beautiful" and it is.

    I haven't seen one yet but I always wanted to try a 57 Chevy passenger nosed truck. Not an El Camino style but a real cab and nose

    I did one like the Cyclone 33/34 years ago . Did all the body work but still haven't finished building the truck. Too many projects. Should have been like alot of other guys and built one at a time.

    Please keep the pictures coming. I love the look of pickups with car front sheetmetal. Funny how most car makers missed the boat on this.

    I put that idea up on the H.A.M.B. PhotoShop thread, and "the moose" obliged with this rendering. :)

    That is very cool, but something needs to be done with the hump in the front of the hood. Just doesn't flow right.

    I was thinking the same thing. I think that that portion should be sectioned although how you would graft the width of the upper cab to the wider body section is beyond me. how about on a later body style like 62 maybe.

    Ever "google" Nash trucks? Late 40's, early 50's? Try "1946 Nash truck"

    Used to be a Nash auto tow truck just outside the Turlock CA Swap Meet. Saw it for a few years.

    Full disclosure; I asked the artist(s) to keep as much of the truck hood and fenders as possible. :)

    Don't recall where I got this pic. Perhaps here on the H.A.M.B.; perhaps not.

    I don't think that this is really car front clip grafted onto a truck; I think it's all car to somewhere in the door and truck from that spot in the door on back.

    American Bantam used the same front clip for car and truck.

    This is a WWII 3/4-ton Dodge 4x4 with some '46 Ford Convertible sheetmetal and '53 Oldsmobile rear quarters.

    A friend is currently working on putting '36 car sheetmetal on a '37 pickup. I'll try to get some pics.

    I remember a while back seeing a nice rendering of a pickup with '36 car sheetmetal that I wanted to show him, but now I can't find it. Anyone remember it, or happen to have it saved?

    That's a nice one Johnny. Looks like it was made that way at the factory!

    Wonder if it is wired for a side impact warning alarm?
