Starting on my new hauler '56 Ford f700

After extracting the f700 out of my brother yard, i got it over to my place and started gutting the camper part of it and tearing down the cab. Right now, its got a built 429 that hasn't been run in a while but got it to pop over with a little gas in the carb. I got some f600 fenders for the 56 cab last year but I'm still in search for some big job fenders. Im hoping they are big enough otherwise ill widen the f600 one and lengthen them a bit with some junkers. Plans are changing for the engine and trans but that won't be for a while. Ive been in search of some 2wd powerstroke ford trucks with either 5 or 6 speed manual transmissions. They're easy to mod and get some decent power out of. Then the hard part is trying to find a 19' steel or aluminum rollback deck with all the hydraulics. Wish me luck. Hope to get in running and driving over the summer with the gasser and a little bit of patching on the cab. The rest will come later.

Not much has gone on.. I'm actually back tracking a little bit hoping it will save me lots of time and money. Just sold the cab i had after i found another one that is nearly rust free with great patina and the whole front clip with some great original pin striping. Hoping to get it at the end of the month. Been selling stuff like crazy so i can afford it. So in the next few weeks ill be updating some more once i get the new cab home.

Well.. not as much progress as i would have liked but its still something. Just got the new cab a few weeks ago. Hoping to get the cab off of whats left of the frame and set on the new chassis. Also bought a power stroke with a 5 speed for the truck but i may ditch that and use an 8.3 cummins with an allison auto trans that i just came a cross. Should have some more progress soon. Not enough time with school and work.

Still gathering parts... slowly

Got myself a nice 19' aluminum jerr-dan bed with a wheel lift. Hell of a deal since it was sitting at the scrap yard behind my boss's building =)

Any new updates? Had to sell my hauler project, the place it was stored was repossessed by the bank, and they cleared everything out. Couldn't fit it at the house, so I sold it to a local Hot Rod shop. They junked everything but the 4 door '41 cab, and built a truck out of it. Wish I had known they were gonna do that, I would have tried to find a way to save the roll back bed. Kinda sad, although they did build a really beautiful truck out of it.
