Re: How about some pics of 47-59

ssons, That truck looks cool. Do you have a clearer shot of those rims? Were they Torque Thrusts?

My dad drove me around in his '59 long bed fleetside the whole time I was a kid. He swapped in a 283 for the straight six, and later a 348. It was a screamer too.

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

Here is my 55 Cameo when she was on the road....
She sits in my garage, sandblasted, for the past 20 years. Hope to start working on her this winter........

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

I guess i never realized I hadn't put mind up yet.

To say that it is a work in progress is an understatement!!

Hope all you guys will hang around for about 10 years until she's done!!

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

Can't believe I haven't added mine yet. I've had it for a couple of months now. Working on a total rewire. Will be lowering it with a dropped axle and rear flip pretty soon.



Not much to look at now, but it will be soon.

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

Here's my 58 burb I found a few months ago. Cant seem to find anyone who makes 1/4's for it, hoping I dont have to use fleetside panels. The tow vehicle is my 02 with 2/3 drop.

I don't know how dino did it, but I've seen other guys do the same. You weld the bumper bolts on the back side of the bumper and then grind the round heads off smooth on the front.
