if you dig up some of the original chevrolet sales advertisements it will use ADANCED DESIGN(47'-55' 1st) and TASK FORCE(55'-59') in it. the pre 47' trucks were refered to as ART DECO. the mysteries of sales.

I really wasn't a flatbed fan either. The truck caught my eye and I thought it would be a fun build.

I have already bought another one to build. It has a normal bed and will get shiney paint.

I finally thought to take some pictures of the painted dash




....and the second "dash" (ignition, headlight switch, wiper switch and dimmer are in the seat base)

....painted and switches installed.


Oh yeah, wiring is a pain in the butt!!!! I used an EZ harness. It would have been easier if I mounted the panel on the firewall....like they suggested, instead of under the seat. I had to "adjust" darn near every wire to make it work that way.

I googled HAMB

seems rather boring. lol

aha, okay, found the jalopy journal stuff. Yea, "hokey ash" wouldn't do for a section title here. We're more family friendly, but let sailors speak as sailors do (they curse a lot). There's more important things in life to worry about (getting a president that a) cares about the middle class and b) does something about it, for example)

the tech info on the hamb i have found is pretty good overall. i personally enjoy a handfull of forums because at times staying on just one gets boring. i'm not really a "traditional hot rodder" really because i usually enjoy most kinds of vehicles

I'm a member of a Jeep forum, two XJ/MJ (Cherokee and Comanche pickup) forums, two AMC forums, and two Kawasaki motorcycle forums. There's others, but I don't frequent those too often... turbocharged Saturns and GrandAms <sure they're nice, but I guess that's what we get for 383 'Cudas and 327 Impalas. Sucks in comparison.

I really dig your AD build. I like the wheel choice also. No, I'm not a traditionalist, like 55 said. I like all kinds.

Question, are you gonna leave the patina finish on it? Looks good as is.
