Well here we go.found this truck in august on cl.po wanted $3500 for it with a chevelle 12 bolt.got it for $2000 and a case of beer.he wanted some moonshine but none was to be had.motor tranny and front suspension was already removed.started gathering parts and talked to justin (scotts hot rods) and went with another ifs air bag setup for the front and 4-bar for the back.found a nice little used summit 383 stroker.we started working on it about 2 weeks ago and quickly realized we needed to channel the body 2" to get it right.that turned into alot more work but i think worth it.clearance is great in the front but in the rear were gonna have to raise the fenders a couple inches and add to the bottoms.this kinda work is no problem for my buddy bruce at vintage rod barn in woodburn.more to come.chizzler

Looks awesome!! I have a '40 I'm collecting parts for, hoping to get it going in the next year or so. What are you planning on running for the power train and wheels?

few update pics.got the rear bumper fit.looks to be a 50s front bumper with splash pan.fits pretty good.didn't like the way the 40s bumper fit the back.got this one with the truck.got the motor mounts set with the stroker and 700r4.we were able to set it really low to keep the tranny tunnel to a minimum.chizzler

Looks great! I would get so much done in a space like that, the driveway in front of the house sucks
