Ok ok, I have been asked a bunch of times why I haven't posted any progress pics/build thread of my truck. The reason is because it isn't overly traditional. It is definitely a hot rod, so I guess I will go for it. This is my first hot rod I built from the ground up, with the help of some good friends. I am going to have to do this through a few post. The truck is a 1940 Chevy that served it's life as a Conoco service truck. It was in horrible condition (pictures do not do justice to the amount of metal NOT in this truck when I got it, lol) I have been working on it for about 9 months at this point. I am trying to have it ready for round up. The frame was hand built, 4 inch Z, and a 14 inch kick up. All of the brackets and shit were made by me ( I run a laser in a fab shop...I know I know....cheating). The bed I also fabricated. The cab has a 6 1/2 inch chop, and the pillars have been laid back. I built the floor out of 1X1 .125 square tubing. The drive train is a 74 500 Caddy. It has a Mutha Thumpr cam (first one sold by Comp), MTS rocker ass, solid lifters, Moly Rings, Clevite bearings, heads milled 40, beehive springs, 429 Cobra Jet Weiand tunnel ram, Holley 625 cfm carbs that will unleash its wrath through Lakes headers, TH400 with 2800 stall and shift kit, and a 9 inch ford with 3:70 gears. Ok, now with some pictures.
