Re: Old 1950 "AIR FORCE" Truck (build)

Truck is going to be exhibited at the air show at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, Kansas on September. I updated looks to reflect more on how it'd appear in 1950. Of course it was nice and vibrant blue back then. To repaint it today would mean all original 'badging' would be lost.

Re: Old 1950 "AIR FORCE" Truck (build)

I can say without hesitation I love the truck. Having spent the last 22 years (and counting) in aircraft maintenance with the Air Force, I have a soft spot for this truck. So glad you were able to retain the painted lettering.

Thanks for preserving its history!!

I like your build, I am working on an Army rat rod myself. s10 with code 504 kit installed, working on LS1 install at this time. my plan is to be o.d. green with an Army star on the doors. Keep up the nice work I will be interested in seeing the progress.

Re: Old 1950 "AIR FORCE" Truck (build)

Nice Job. I wish I could have saved any of the original USAF markings on my 54 but they were gone before i got it. FWIW The tire pressure and speed limit markings had not changed during my time in the AF 69-73. I even had to stencil and rattle can some of them on the 60's Dodges we had at the time. BTW these trucks were also used to tow smaller jets like the t33 when tow tugs weren't available.

Re: Old 1950 "AIR FORCE" Truck (build)

It's a cool vision you had for this truck. I like figuring out an "angle" on a project and then building toward that end. This one took a lot of creativity and I enjoyed reading the thread.
