I Have a long way to go. Looking to here what you guys think about it so far.thanx pete
Love it. Just right. Great little truck.
looks like a good start to me. I thought i was the hambs biggest lurker but you got me beat. 4 posts since 2006 thats got to be a record.
Pete...Nice little 32' pickup.
Tell us the details!
GREAT start Pete! I'd go off that seat for inspiration, I'm seeing Lime Green Roth Flake.
Pretty much an a-v8 with a 32 cab.The eng. and cab were together in a old rod. The guy I got it from wanted a sbc and thought the cab was to rough so I was happy to buy them. The Eng. was rebuilt in 62` bored 60 over pulled heads to have a look. The motor and the trans are 39` and came together.The cab is channeled 6 inches. 36 axle dropped to 4inches and chromed in the good old days. I have all kinds of cool stuff for this and can`t wait to utilize it all. Well now it`s time to take it apart again for the last time to do all the details. thank for the feed back. As far as being a lurker just been waiting for the opp. to show you guys something.
that's a really clean little truck you have there. good luck with it!
looks good !!!! maybe needs a little chop
I expect to see your post count go up as you keep us informed on this build. You will keep us informed won't you?
that truck has some serious character already. now hurry and finish!
Very cool .....
Less is more. looks great ! colors?
I'm diggin it...how about a channel with no chop...definitely diggin the seats for an inspiration...
Good looking start
I say chop it, but that's just the look I like. It looks really good as it is. I'd also lower it in the rear, but if you like the rake, then you're nailin' it. I love the Flathead.
Keep us posted. Over and out.
Thanx for all the positve comments. Really feeling motivated to get it running and show the progress as it happens.Pete
