Photochop My Ride! 1947 Studebaker Pickup!

I'd like to see some other peoples ideas as far as paint and minor modifications (no roof chops please, I like the original profile of the roof on the truck) This truck is nearing completion and is currently in my project journal on here. The truck has been put together in 60 days, working on weekends, outside, by myself (no assistance in moving the cab or any other parts, the truck was disassembled and re-assembled by myself. No A frame crane, just muscle (or lack of brains on my part!). I was thinking about doing the truck in white or an off white, charcoal gray, john Deere flat black, or ???? You be the judge. Any ideas would be great. You don't see too many of these as hot rods and I really enjoyed putting this together and would like to see what other people may come up with. The Studebaker body is sitting on a 87 Dodge Dakota chassis. The box is from a later year Studebaker pickup, and will have the fenders on the rear dropped to accommodate the running boards and the seam around the wheel opening removed to better match the front fenders. I'd like to keep sort of a "rat rod" theme to this since this was a budget build. Currently I have less than 1000.00 into this project! So let the Photo Chopping begin!

I don't do photo-chopping ...yet. But here are a few of ideas for the artists on the board. Flat white with metallic green and blue flames. Or how about school bus yellow. Or instead of the traditional John Deere flat black how about a flat charcoal.

RE:Photochop My Ride! 1947 Studebaker Pickup!

The thing I like most about the body style of this truck is the angle of the windshield and the roof line. The cab roof is tilted forward slightly while the windshield is tilted back giving that sleek look to the cab. I am not really crazy about the front grill, but I think something could be done to take the attention from the weird mustache look on the front. perhaps a single color wrapping around the front to accent the center chrome strip on the grille, or just color the center of the grille to follow the hood lines down the front and wrap the rest of the grille in a different color to take away from the wide grille look.... As far as colors, I am open to suggestions, I like the flat charcoal idea. Curious as to what it would look like on the truck!

Now seeing that, I can see that the black does no justice for it. And theres the white mustache.

Yeah, it didn't grab me, either. I think the grille should be flaunted, maybe with the center section something bright and bold and the side pieces black. The truck color should be something that makes people see the lines. Flat black just doesn't seem to do that.

Here's a kind of eye-burner yellow.

Here's a pumpkin. The grille lines are too fuzzy in the image to preserve. The details disappear when you zoom to 200% and get smeared when trying to alter their colors.

re: Photochop My Ride! 1947 Studebaker Pickup!

I will take my better camera home tonight and snap a hi-res photo of it. The orange looks better, I like what you did with the grill detail. Perhaps the new copper/orange color that GM and the other auto people are using along with a charcoal or black may look pretty good...

If you want a "rat rod" theme, why not just leave it the way it is. I thought that's what rat rod was.

Alright, time to go a little goofy. The attached images were not drug-induced. (Maybe the half gallon of coffee had some influence).

re:Photochop My Ride! 1947 Studebaker Pickup!

Wow, the last 2 are out there....The second one looks like something from a Cheech and Chong movie! Weather was too nasty to shoot some decent photos today. Will have to wait for better weather. Thanks for the input though. And as far as keeping it original for the rat rod theme, I would but would also like to preserve what's left of the truck. I know there's not a lot of cash into it, but there is body work and repair panels that need to be repaired, and I don't think it would last just in primer here in Wisconsin.

Truck needs some major re-proportioning. Get out your recip saw, grit wheel, plasma cutter, & MIG and go for it. would make a great mini truck.

Wash it down and de-grease it good, then clear over the weathered finish. It looks great. There was a pic floating around on the board of an old wagon I believe with clear over the patina and it looked amazing.

Following willys36's lead, here it is chopped and sectioned. Not shortened, though. Wish I could do paint.

[edited to add:]
Green, added a little rake to it, lowered.
