Willys or henry j gasser on back headed to rip up the asphalt...
Here's my 59 Apache,stuck a camaro clip in it this past winter,body and paint next winter,I'm having a bunch of fun just drivin it right now BTW does anybody have a decent fleetside rear bumper laying around?
Damn I want a truck now.....
Why would you do such a thing!!!!!
Yup. Looks like it has some history, so the exterior looks okay, but fix the interior and wiring. What engine is in it? If its something boring like a 350, yank it and drop in a 409.
I'm ready for something new. I've had that FJ for 13 years and now I live in Dallas tx. The summers aren't too friendly. Today its 98. And I'm working on a roof.
Engine in it at the moment is a 245 Hemi....it will be changed out to something with a little more guts.
I have a 57 Pontiac that will go on the back of it.
Will look cool going to the Nostalgia drags I think.
A mate is building a FED now...keeps telling me to get rid if the sleeper cab so I can put a longer tray on to put his FED on. The sleeper cab is staying.
The wiring is a mess. Slowly going through it getting rid of any dead end wires.
102 Here today and working under the hood of a car that is hot. The drive home in the FJ with the top off will make a shitty day good!
I do know what you mean about wanting a change, any way to do both?
this is my 36 Dodge
Just waiting for the salt to go away !
Here's one I'm building.
Check out that air conditioning!!
My 61 C40 hauling the "parts" L60 out of the backyard..
Heres my 56 Ford everyday driver...
This is mine in the build. I haven't got any recent pics cos I am living with the inlaws attm and no place to work. Getting edgy to get it done now had it for 9 years this year.
that is one good looking rig!!
It's a bit of a trailer queen right now but I think it's pretty cool.
Naw, Thats not a Funky Trailer Queen. That baby's a daily driver.
Cool Truck Man, Like the caps.
Ok. I will play. The 35 as it sits now and my 50 GMC as it sat cica: 1984. Still have it today.
Had this for a while... heard its completely different now, kinda sad.
Here's some pics of one we're just about to call done...
some from the hot rod reunion
An Oldbeets, loved the looks of that truck when I had mine
The 56 grill suits this 51-52, and it's funny because I was thinking of putting a 52 grill with extra teeth in my 56 COE! (or a chrome 57 grill I have)
Here's a shot of my old one on the salt in 2002
Here's a picture of my 57 taken early this Spring. Sam
My buddy Craig's truck just getting some licks on it.
Added some springer forks to my cruiser bike that rides in the back of my F100.....take a look and let me know whatcha think.....no springers with beach bars or springers with apes....
