Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

there isnt a condenser installed, so no AC yet. I am shaking out any cooling problems, if I have it a while I will add the AC. but thats like a $500 job, lines and leakdown etc.

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

Hey Joe! I can't tell by your pics, but are you able to use the factory inner fender panels with the S10 frame or is it just an open engine bay? I like the looks of the inner panel on the 46's when there used.

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

yep, just had to trim around the upper control arms. you can just barely see in the last picture I posted, the daylight is seen through the inner louvers. I dont build one without inner fenders, thats a fast way to have a really dirty engine.


here are a couple older pictures.

It turned out great. Looking forward to seeing what you're starting on next!

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

yeah, mostly! thinking of either going to the benton airport fly in saturday or working on Wamego, the next project, a 49 GMC 1/2 ton. going a bit different on Wamego, thinking 20s and rubber bands and maybe even air ride. I have a whole ridetech S10 setup on the shelf, just needs bushings and one bag, and a set of MIC manuals. and some MMW longer uppers, and AIM longer lowers. hmm.

its a hit at the gas station, I had to ask people to move (nicely) to take a picture and I think I got proposed marriage. solid offer, maybe if he shaved his beard. you can see the rear is dropping with driving, already I am thinking a 1" block instead of 2".

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

Hey Joe? Take a look at this link and tell me what you think. I know its the wrong year and is to short. Is it possible to lengthen these guys. S10's (and Dakotas), the right year and size are as rare as hens teeth around here.

there isnt a wrong year, 2wd s10s were mostly the same 82-02. that does looks like a shortbed, but its easy as heck to make a shortbed longer just by moving the front leaf perch back and flipping the rear section of the frame. you cut that pat off anyway so you arent losing anything really, and moving the perch back lowers the rear about an inch! with the wheels and tires I would say thats a pretty good deal. dont worry about mussing the paint up because you need to cut all those brackets off and take a chunk out of the torque boxes anyway.

see if you can get the bench seat too! cut the headrests off and it fits these cabs perfectly

I thought that sounded like a rockin good deal. I understand moving the front perches back. Not sure if I would even have to flip the rear frame section. My plan with the dodge was to do a shorter then stock wheelbase anyway, say around 112". So I might be able to just move front and rear perches back 4" as it is in fact 108"
I'm still not sure I can get pass the fact that it would be a Dodge on a Chevy frame though. I still might use stock frame with a Dakota crossmember. Hmmmmm

Re: 1941 1/2 ton project Hannah

I didnt get to benton saturday, I tried too long to get a car seat installed temporarily. I didnt do anything but bask in attention on fathers day either. yesterday I worked on putting wheels on my neighbors a frame and today oh well what the hell I started another truck haha.
