Some promised pics of my project

A whole lot of body work and my boy helping put the engine together. The bottom of the cab is bedlinered, as will be the inside of the fenders.( I live 2 1/2 miles down a gravel road ) .Frame is boxed with a Mustang II front end and it has a Ranger rearend with a stock 348/700R4. It is going to have GM tbi on it for nice reliability. The floor, cab corners , front cowels were all replaced, other than all that I am hoping to use all the original sheet metal. Working on the acc brackets right now, hope you like the pics.

Very nice looking project and great to see your son helping out.

I'm also putting a 348 into my '48 Chev extended cab. Here I thought I was being different.

That is funny, its almost getting wierd though, The 53 I am doing is officially going to be my wife's. She also loves the Ford Blue ( but I guess who doesn't ) but she decieded on the Green. This is the 4th color she has chosen over the years, Yellow,Pearl White,Burnt Orange and now Green. One of these days its going to be too late for her to change her mind again cause I'm just about ready to paint the firewall and jam it.

Just curious. What made her choose this truck and how did the 348 become the motor of choice?

I chose the 348 for mine because the truck will be one of a kind and I wanted a different motor than the usual small or big block.

My very first vehicle was a 52 chevy pickup, always just loved them.Years after my original went to the junk yard, my neighbor decided to sell his 53 and he knew I wanted it so we made the deal.As for the engine, I also wanted something different, I was looking at inline 6's out of Trailblazers,actually had an LS1 motor and trans out of a 98 T/A planned to go in it.One day at work ( I work at a farm implement dealer ) an old havester came in for junk and it had a 348 in it, that is when I thought cool and different.Thats a short version of how it all came to be.
