    Retro tech?!?! Sounds like the latest wave! Or maybe a trade school...
    My advice would be to skip the "early billet" wheels and trim and just skip right to the Weld "flames series" wheels and trim! If you don't know what those are, pick up any mid nineties Street Rodder and suppress the urge to gag! Trust me, it got much worse than Boyd's stuff...

    Seriously though, super cool little truck. Those '38 '39 trucks have been ugly ducklings for so long that it's neat to see one done up the way it should be. And I say ugly duckling as the former owner of a '42 half ton, so I know my ugly trucks!
     
  3. Killer, just drive the snot outa it for a while as is. If tastes change down the road change it then. Looks right, sits right and prolly sounds right.

    I LOVE it. Not sure I am digging the red windshield frame tho. But overall I love the look.

    I'm in love with this truck. It rides and sounds awesome. And its super nice to have a ride that has a covered top for those chilly days :)

    Very cool little PU. Makes me REALLY regret letting the low mileage, rust free example slip through my fingers many years ago because I couldn't decide whether I liked the grille of not. Today I'd be on it like white on rice.:)

    Very cool truck, and I love the shot of it and your 41'. But just one question, why do you want to put a 350 in it and not keep the Flathead?

    That's what is nice about this one. He built it exactly how I would have. Usually I have a whole list of stuff that I need to change. This time it is just minor stuff.

    That was one of my favorite Flatties at the East vs West. (you guys over there kicked our butt) All I'd do to it is maybe take out the side engine covers to show off that beautiful engine, it's a little too dark to see it all. Glad it's still in the area.

    I hated to let mine go, but a fellow HAMBer made me an offer too good to pass up. I think there's still one in my future...
