You should do it like you want to....If you are not completely sure what you want to do, then you just need to think about it some more. Don't do it a certain way just because others say to.

54 p/u

the 54 is unique that year like 69 camaro,it seems disrespectful to chop it up but when i look at it i see what it could be as a radically modified rod.ive got 35 years in the biz and cant decide

Wow brian, when you say cut it up you aint kiddin,I decieded not to cut it or even touch it.It'll make somebody a nice little truck as is. I found a 32 ford cab in rough shape to cut up,This 54 should stay orig so I'll sell it and use the money for building the ford.I think a 32 would make a cool rat rod

hahahaha, heck no Randy I saw what you did to that poor little ranger, LOL poor little truck dont know if its coming or going any more.Your like a mad scientist or Dr monroe putting differnt heads on little helpless animals...poor rescue ranger. I'll get wild with the 32 but your crazy man... I like crazy and I'll be looking for some wild suggestions from you on the 32 build. I think I found the right guy for the 54 anyway,a little more (down to earth than us)

Man you had me on the floor rolling with that one, My wife walked by and was thinking I had lost my mind,(AGAIN) Until I let her read this,Then she was also rolling.. Believe me when I tell you,What I did to that ranger is nothing compared to what I would do to that 54.. You right about me being a mad scientist, If I could build everything that's in my head,They would come get me with a stray jacket..

Anyone have any idea where this truck is now???

If I recall, it fell from a trailer shortly after it was first finished and in the late 80s someone (a guy named Glasscock??) bought it and restored it back to what you see in this pic.
Have no idea where it went after that

Maybe this will help. Imagine walking into the garage a few months from now and enjoying the progress you have made. Cut it up.
