Re: How about some pics of 47-59

Did a rat rod clear coat a friend thought me. Works pretty good for transmission fluid lol made my 57 GMC look pretty good. Then I stripped my 59 down to the frame then mounted a mustang gas tank in the rear and wanted to see if you can see it with the bed on. So far I like it just wish I had a shop!!

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

Here is a side shot. Thanks Jim for the kind words. I like your ride as well. I was sick when I seen the post about hitting the deer.
I can't take credit on building this truck. I raced small boats for about 30 years and wanted to do something different. I sold the racing stuff and the search was on. Never had a "cool" car and set out to buy something "cool". Didn't think I would ever get one done if I started from scratch. I have been doing a lot of small stuff to it. I will try and join in on posting a little more. Love reading and looking!

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

Here is my new 1954 Chevy 3800. Just what I need, another project.





I have it turning over nice with the starter, but no fire yet.

Thanks Lower50's, I have had fun with it so far. 400 miles since November. Been making it "mine" doing small things. I don't think they are ever done.

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

I live in monroe I didn't want a reproduction I like to keep things all original. I like the fun trying to hunt for the parts and cleaning them up and putting them back to use and with the hat grill I was a pain to find.

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

I do too, when ever possible, I find the original parts fit better, are made from better materials and are often cheaper, Cheaper is also very good, I sent you a PM maybe you didn't find it, I would like to buy that section of Grill from you, have you seen any Bumper overriders? do U have any Badges? Mine is a V8 truck with the Pontiac Motor, would like to find the V8 badges too. And the Tach, I saw a beautiful Tach on eBay but no drive for it, and my speedometer is faded to the point it can't be read any more.
