I have to blame Bill (Novatattoo) for my original affliction with these trucks. After seeing his truck years ago, I was on a mission. I originally thought it should be really easy to find a nice, rust free, SWB '57 Ford. I was SADLY mistaken. Not only are they hard to find period, but a rust free short wheel base is nearly impossible. My second choice was a SWB '66. That's what I found and built. Lotsa fun and miss it BAD, but it still wasn't a '57. Years later, my buddy Dave (kustomrace) informed me that one of our car club members had a '57 Ford. Believe it or not, this truck came from our Detroit area Roadents C.C. president (Rancho). Been in Michigan all it's life. Long story short..... Here's my new '57 Ford. I'll start the pics with what started all this, then how mine was found. I'll move on with progress pics as they come.... Sound good? Here we go.
