Two 49's I built and sold and my current 54
My 52 GMC
@38Chevy454 I really like that!!
Thanks. Jaguar IFS and IRS. 350/700R4. Real NM patina, sat out in field for many years before I got it and built it. Used to live in NM.
A friend bored a one piece rear main seal on my 261.
Holley 390cfm, Clifford intake, early style, early style Fenton with integral heat plenum.
Someone posted this on Facebook, from Sade’s of the Past Early Birds, last night.
Just updated my avatar, replaced the 396/402 with a 454 and the 350 Turbo with a 4L70E. Got a few things to sort out but its running and driving again.
Here's mine I bought in 1978 and drove in high school. I still have it, its been several different colors had several different engines, transmissions, rear ends etc. 350/350/350 ford 9 inch. Runs like a snotty nosed brat.
Dad's '52 waiting it's turn.
Will have a 261 with Fenton manifolds, stock trans, slight lowering etc.
Couple of more pictures I’ve come across from Shades.
Two that I have owned and enjoyed for many miles.
@MO_JUNK do you still have this one? Or more pictures?
Here is another photo of the my brothers truck above.
My friend Sumner's truck (1FAT GMC) that was our push truck for our Bonneville Studebaker.
They are a fairly complicated chop. Ask me how I know
Here is the one that I have owned 33 years and I have driven it about that long.
I am rebuilding it this year. I think I will do the Ohio style flames on it this time.
@Kelly Burns I found a pic. Hope it shows up
It did, you have to click the red arrow to see it. It’s A bitchin’ looking truck! Bring it was at IRP is just icing on the cake.
Did you help Steve on his?
I chopped my avatar in 1988-89 . There weren't any how to books back then . I bought a truck for $75 in 1986 and practiced chopping it's top ,then hauled it to the scrap yard. I then bought another one for $150 and with a little more knowledge I practiced chopping it . Then I bought my avatar for $ 300 and chopped it. I had tacked the top together and cut the tacks back out 4 times before I got the look I wanted. These not very good pics are from 88-89 , you will see my method was a little unorthodox . Bill
I cut the whole center of the top out of mine and skinned it with the skin of another cab top so that I could keep the crown in the top. I had seen to many that the roof was flat. If I did that again I would try to buy the same section from a panel truck so that it would have more metal to use near the back. There is lots of bonds in mine.
As only Lance Sorchik can do! @Rocky
Yep, I klnow exactly how that goes. And then use the deluxe cab with the corner windows and you have a whole new issue. I hear you and @48stude !!!!
Old shot of my 48 with my wife, son John and Daughter Kerri who just got married last month.
Taken in 1981 on a road trip to Texas just after we had arrived at my inlaws house.
