Has anyone seen this beauty?

I was hoping to see more pics of this one. Mainly the tailgate. Something looks different(tilted), like maybe a Nomad tailgate or something.

I've seen that front bumper, or one like it, on here somewhere as well.

Unique for sure with some nice work in it but the built not bought is a bit of a misnomer as almost all of it was farmed out to shops including the Fatman chassis.

Re: Has anyone seen this beauty?

Yeah...I don't like it. It's nice, but I don't like it. I prefer the factory lines, lowered but not raked, and definitely not the chopped top. At least he didn't do this to a '57...

Re: Has anyone seen this beauty?

I remember that someone here on the forum was tilting their tailgate forward like that, but I don't think I ever saw the finished product. I wonder if that is the truck. If I remember correctly the one I am thinking about was in Canada.

Beautiful build, but just a show truck, right? It doesn't even have door seals.
