    truck1.jpg truck2.jpg truck11.jpg truck16.jpg 40 ford.jpg Thought I would post some pics of my 40 p/u I just finished. took a lot longer than I would expected at 5 years, but it's done and running. Some engine details: 1948 block, .060 over, Sharps heads, eldebrock with 3 94's, chevy valves, adj. lifters, L100 cam regrind, 8lbs off the flywheel. Paint work was sent out but all body work was done by me, as was frame, engine assy,. and quickchange build using Rodsville center. Interior is Brown kit from Macs. Last pic is what I bought and pictures lie :)
