I've been thinkin' about screwing together a sort of hermorphroditic combination using homemade 2" x 3" frame rails and a compact truck cab with the top sliced off, leaving the windshield frame and windshield. Maybe something like a LUV, Plymouth Arrow, Dodge Ram (early 80's small truck model), S10, S15, Ranger or whatever. It would have a sheet metal fabricated bed and some decent meats on the back, skinnies up front. Steel wheels painted body color with rings and caps. Shortened Deuce radiator shell. And something really off-the-wall for a powerplant, like maybe a Hudson 308 6-banger flathead.

If you did, we would have to change the title of this thread to "Rat Rod Trucks".......................

Titled as a 32 Ford but it is all scratch built - cab, bed, fenders, grill shell etc. etc. Not an original piece on it or in it. Some shots of the body fabrication in the first couple pages of my journal if you want more detail.

I've seen it up close, and no matter how good the picture is, you just have to see it in person to truly appreciate the quality of the build. Not to mention I love the way it shakes the ground from 60' away.


In a while, Chet.

Not old school but is supercharged and gets the job done, quickly This is the only pic I have without going out and taking a pic and then uploading it to the PC. Oh, and even though it's a Harley truck I can't afford the harley to go into the back, so I'll stick wih the kawasaki.

And my current crop

68 El Camino, a 402 BB, muncie 4 speed and 12 bolt (I built it 15 years ago and use it for my shop truck....needs total cosmetic restoration).

My current project: 1 of 70 1976 440 powered 2WD stepsides built and the only one know to have the True Spirit stripes. It's being built as my new shop truck and a replacement for the El Camino.

My 37 Dodge when it was in mock-up

My 66 GMC
454 / TH400

Haven't really done a darned thing to the "old gray mare" since early spring ... trying to get my (new) 34 x 24 garage built.

I rented a skid-steer loader and "broke ground" myself just this weekend. My contractor wanted $2,000 to "remove the gardens" ... so I thought I would rent the loader and trailer at $300 / day and do it myself.

I'll take some pics of the garage progress and add them to my journal.




Date-Stamps are wrong, BTW
I have installed the rad support, rad, etc ... and have had the engine running (open headers ... of course ) during break-in and another couple of times ... just for fun.
