My shoebox in progress
Does anyone know if this truck was ever finished? I dropped out of the scene for a few years and this is pretty much how I remember it looking about 10 years ago. I tried to find the old build thread too, but also came up empty.

Some beautiful GM Products.....
Thanks Sancho! Sad that it was never finished by the OG builder, but I probably would of traded for a 36 Ford as well!
I suggest you see the thread of its construction: A NEW MERC TO THE ROAD! There is a lot of crafts. They are going to have fun!
Yep.....love me a Rivi.....

My long ass Mild-Custom project that seems to be going nowhere fast! Ha!
A project that is heavily involved amongst many friends. Trying to accomplish it all through ourselves and our contacts.

@CrcooperPhotography Taillights? I love 'em. You did something different that still works, still has that look. Keep up the great work.
I vote caps, chrome reverse or Moon full wheel discs, paint the wheel lip a color you like..
It looks like you have the stock tail lights frenched... Superb.....
Thank you very much mate!! Appreciate that!
The dream set-up would be Moonglow's Frenched 56 chrysler Shark Fin's!

The simplicity and color choice of this one really impressed me! Good job!

Here are a few of my favorites..
This one does it for me!!
The lines on the 64 are so beautiful and they kept the door handles. Shame what happened to Ford in 65, when I saw the first 65 Impala after seeing the first 65 Ford, I remember thinking Fords done... These Fords were such badasses with the 427 and 406 mills...
A real good job on your most recent selections, Bowtie Coupe!
Uhm, I dunno about that. The 90's era Lincoln Town Car wheels on the otherwise kool '57 T-Bird aren't what I would call a 'real good job'. And the new-style curved spoke version of a Torque Thrust wheel on both those '54 Chevys seem outta place too. Is that blue/white '54 Chevy set up as a Pro-Street? Do we do Pro-Street on the HAMB?
