bigger

We have a couple of 40's chevy farm trucks and their frames , suspensions, axles, brakes, wheels are a lot bigger, longer frame. we have a 46 ford 1 ton flat bed and it is bigger that the pickups. I have seen a couple rat rod trucks that used mostly big truck parts. but the top speed gearing limites you to 60 or 65 mph.

The F1 had a GVW of 4,700 lbs. The F5 GVW ranged between 10,000 and 14,500 lbs. What do you think?

The frames are no where near the same, but the cabs might be, they were on the older trucks, I'm not sure on something that new.
