    Decided to section my custom 50 Chevy truck this winter. Took out 4 inches of the cab and left the fenders alone. Added 50 Mercury hood. Over the past couple of winters I chopped the truck 4 inches, installed 53 Buick headlights, 46 Chevy car grill, 50 Mercury rear bumper on the front turned upside down, changed the dash to 57 Olds that wraps into the doors. Installed 59 Chevy Impala chrome roof vent piece. Made rear window electric. The bed is 60 DeSoto quarter panels with a 52 Chrysler Imperial bumper. The rear suspension is on stock leaf springs with an S10 rear and air bags. The front suspension is Mustang II with air bags. Motor is 350 Chevy with a 350 turbo. The truck was free, given to me by a friend. When I first got it, I was just going to put it together and sell it.
    I guess I'll keep it now.

    Mark, I'm here to tell you that I like what you have done with that truck. I've been measuring the pieces I have to build my new cab (easier to build new than repair what i have) and a section is in the works. Keep us posted on this one and more photos please.

    makes me realize again that post count has nothing to do with your ability, it should be the less posts might mean they spend more time actually doing rather than talking about doing (as I have been doing a lot of lately). maybe I should get rid of the internet this summer, do a bunch then log back in and show a project like this BAD ASS man!!!

    Lots of great work shown here, I like that it won't appeal to the masses also
  9. very impressive!:cool:

    I like the way this truck is evolving...

    Especially the hood and grille.

    For those that haven't seen it before, this picture is from this past summer:

    the section job looks really cool
  20. I like it. But I think you could lose the ski rack on the trunk lid.

    The back isn't working for me.

    The cab and front, very cool.

    Just my two cents.

  26.,...that's a ton of very nice work,..that's a nice custom Chevy. Any idea what color it'll be? ...I like it much better than the old R&C Dream Truck.

    I love the truck prior to adding some of the unnecessary extras: luggage rack, side chrome, chrome grills behind rear wheel, chrome on edge of running boards. It's not necessary and the truck lines look great without it. My (free and exactly what it's worth) recommendation is to set off the truck with paint (maybe a fade job), not any more mods or unneccessary trim.

    Wicked truck, man. You definitely won't see another one of these on the road. I do think that the body trim is unnecessary--it doesn't flow with the contours on the back end. Maybe a little tweaking is all it needs. But remember- it's your ride, do whatever the hell you want to with it (looks like you have so far):D.

    I REALLY like how this one is coming along!
    If you don't mind, i'd like to give my 2 cents worth.

    in the last 3 pictures you posted, the first, side profile shot- Im not sure if its the angle of the pic or not, but based on that shot alone, the truck looks high centered, the fins appear to almost point down, or prefectly level, i think tilting the bed up in back (maybe an inch) would do wonders.
    From the rear shot, the fins end (start?) abruptly, no flow. maybe continue them to the middle of the doors?

    Dont get me wrong, the truck is super cool! It just feels like- cool bed. cool front. but not perfect as a whole. I wish i had the time/space/skills that you do to pull this truck off. I cant wait to see it done!
