Pics of a 47-54 crew cab???

I have been watching this forum for a few months now and was wondering if anyone here has any pics or seen anyone building a true four door pick up this body style. I have seen a few extended cabs but no four doors. Any help would be very appriciated!!!!

Re: Pics of a 47-54 crew cab???

Yeah they will be suicied and the doors will close together like the new pickups. I have the driverside back door mocked up with the latch and stuff for the front door to close already on it. I am waiting for my bear claw latches and hinges to come in. Hopefully they will be in before the end of the month.

Re: Pics of a 47-54 crew cab???

got good news today, I was able to finially get the materials i needed to finish the roof skin. I picked up three pieces of 16 gauge tubing to build a frame to support the roof and a few sheets of 18 gauge cold rolled sheets for the skins. Hopefully if the kidos behave this weekend we can get something done.

Re: Pics of a 47-54 crew cab???

Had a good day on sunday and was able to get alittle work done. I was able to get the roof almost finished. It still needs the drip rails and a little work done on the driverside rear door. I need to finish the roof out but it is all tacked into place. I used some one inch square tubing to build a frame for the add on. So far everything is coming right along. Hopefully i will be able to get the pasenger side worked up this week and the weekend. I hope you guys injoy the pics!!!!!

Re: Pics of a 47-54 crew cab???

Would a system like a van or panel rear/side door work for the back? So the latch is actually up and down at the top and bottom for the back door? Just a though. Dig the trucks. I've wanted to do this with a 1 ton panel, make it a 4 door. So glad you put the effort into making the back door frame "square." I saw one recently that they just swapped side to side so they had a slanted back edge of each rear door. Looked like they weren't trying, to me!

Re: Pics of a 47-54 crew cab???

Been a while since i've been able to see whats going on with every body. I have had a little bit of progress, but still waiting on the hinges so i can finish the rear doors and cab. I am getting very anxious. I want to be able to drive it by july. We have a great local show the third weekend of July. I cant wait. Here you go . I hope you enjoy the pics. It gives me a great idea of the finished product.
