truck mods

A buddy of mine is building a 36 "Ute" roadster pickup. A company used to build a fiberglass 36 ford pickup body to fit on an older ranger chassis. He found a 36 ford 1 1/2 ton Ford farm truck, a ranger frame and went to work. He enrolled in the "Grandpa" program at UVU.. Over 65 and rates go from a grand a semester to $ 100, NO CREDIT ..He built dies for the college pulmax and made new panels to lengthen the cab 8 in. and to make the UTE pickup bodysides.. He plans on a SBC, he looked at the 302 in my ranger and decided a chevy engine would be a lot easier. In the pict he is building new rear fenders from scratch at the college shop. Check out "chris davenport aluminum 40 willys" he built as a student project at UVU. Those are the front fenders that were on the 1 1/2 ton farm truck
