  1. Great deal on the cab, looks like a 36 Dodge or plymouth coupe in that last set of pics.
     
  2. Hotrod 95,
    Ya got a good start! Especially if ya have her helping!
    Photos in post #252 look like Joe's shop in Ponca City? He's helped me several times and what a great guy! If ya got him and your dad both helping, you are one lucky guy!

    Your truck is really coming along. With deals like that cab you are going to have a great ride on a low budget.
    Hang on to your girl friend too...a woman that likes to help with her man's ride is a keeper. I married mine and she still helps me 40 years later.
    Keep the pic's coming.

    Then I stripped the parts off the cab (more pics tomorrow when it's sunny) and got to checking out these really look seats that I've never seen in a 48 before!!

    The passenger side seat (the part you sit on) folds up for more space, and the drivers side has a shock, with a spring! Crazy kool! More updates tomorrow!

    The cab has an F-5 plate on the side...Big truck seats! Should ride really nice with that sprung seat. Love the turn signal assembly on the steering column, be a cool unit to save for the build. Take your time and enjoy the build, you're doing great.

    Keep the lady, Mine has been helping for nearly 45 years, the greatest blessing of my life.
