Much about the reasons and the history of this build is in my profile information. This thread will be a combination of challenges, wins, rants (I'll try to keep those to a minimum though), questions, and lessons learned. Hope you all enjoy the trip and contribute to what will hopefully be a wonderful experience. In my profile narrative I did state that I would post more once a few of the details were worked out, so here we go.... I'm losing the workshop I've used for 20 years and have to have this project complete by March 1, 2015, the official start date being September 21, 2014. I'm working with a '36 low roof cab pickup, all original, I've had since around 1994. Know anyone that needs an original driveline, engine, radiator, etc.?? Anyway, as we all do, I'll be changing things up a bit, using a 327 with 3-2's and a 700R4 transmission. The grille and all other chrome parts were dropped off at the chrome company a few weeks ago and should be back in 3-4 more weeks. There's been a steady stream of UPS, Mail carriers, and large delivery trucks stopping at my place and I don't see that changing anytime soon. The most difficult and frustrating aspect right now is the lack of rear end. I thought I had one located, a 2005 Colorado rear, but it's 62" wide. I'm using the original 6-bolt wire wheels so using a 6-bolt rear end is a requirement while staying as close to 59" wheel mounting surface to surface as possible. Currently body work, motor and transmission mockups are in process. Am installing '37 Chevy door posts and spreader to remove ALL of the original wood from the body. I've welded much in my life, but not much thin body panels before, this has been interesting. There are still a few body closures to make at the back of the cab and around the cowl, but they won't be seen so it shouldn't be too tough to complete.
