  1. Why? It would be more trouble than its worth. Pickup chassis for those trucks aren't that hard to find. They made a billion of em'.

    Why not? Not necessarily talking about just this truck but any big truck, using what you have , just because you can, etc. etc. A lot of builds change axles, sub frame , etc anyway. I know these frames are usually bigger but just saying one could....if you are gonna start with a pickup frame why not start with the whole pickup truck?

  4. as a general rule a big truck cab is usually in a lot better cond and more likely to be rust free than a pickup. I have a AD GMC big truck in my hoard the bumper and front portion of the frame will weigh more than a entire pickup frame. the grille and fenders are larger. Its common to mount a AD cab on a s10 frame and get a better suspension much easier than trying to use a big truck frame.

    Yeah, I knew about the fenders and stuff....and knew the frame would be bigger on most maybe.......I had a opportunity to try and buy a 36 international harvester dump truck years ago, and thought about doing that but the old cab and stuff was really just too rusty. It was like this one only it was sitting in the woods and in pretty rough shape.

  6. Not a V8-60 car. The 85 mounts sit on top of the crossmember, the 60 mounts are on ears that extend back behind the crossmember. Somebody had a late flathead in that '40 and welded up risers to support the late flathead mounts.
  7. Thanks for that, always good to learn new stuff.:) JW

    Although the wood framing is rotted, the sheet metal looks good. Hope that the local "R*T R*D" guys didn't buy it.

    Too bad that you're so far away. I just bought a 302 short block and am looking for 270 / 302 parts.

    Harmonic balancer, water pump, stick flywheel, etc.

    Those may be owned by . I've passed by there several times. Approximately 10 years ago I stopped and talked to an elderly gentleman who owned them and would sell. I believe he passed away and now the aforementioned sells parts online

    This has been rotting away in outside storage for a very long time.

  22. Thats enough for me to think of things that are illegal. But I have the willpower to resist....:(
  23. 1961 Cadillac Miller Meteor (M&M) I believe. The Ghostbuster guys could use a few parts for their 1959s. Here in Lubbock Tx one fellow changed quarter panels and front clip to make a 1959 out of his 1960. Turned out pretty good.
  24. This old Ford truck, or what's left of it is sitting and rotting in a cow pasture. 20190817_174036.jpeg
