After four years of gathering parts, and a year and a half of actually building, I am finally to a point where my truck is starting to look like something. I am not much of a wordsmith, and my computer skills are weak at best, so I will try to keep this brief... This is my first build so I am learning quite a bit along the way. The HAMB has been a great resource for both technical and visual inspiration, so I would like to thank everyone in advance for the endless knowledge and especially all the historic photos. I've always wanted a real hotrod, though I can't say I've ever driven or ridden in one. Hopefully sooner,rather than later, that will change. I am missing some early pictures because my old computer took a dump, but as with most of the early Chevys, mine was just a pile of sheetmetal. The original swap meet purchase included a complete cab (in pieces) , an original radiator and grille, a bare 1 1/2 ton frame, some misc. hardware and a title. Here we go... BTW, sorry for the thumbnails. I don't know how to post regular old pics.
