Re: Thread #2: Early Hauler Pictures...

Here is a couple pictures of my 46 in progress. It started life as a 1 1/2 ton firetruck and now the cab is being installed on a S10 frame.

Re: Thread #2: Early Hauler Pictures...

ALRIGHT! Another thread, and with more pictures.

Did anyone else notice that the metallic orange '46 above has had the signals removed from the top of the headlight housings. I don't really care for the makeshift signals mounted underneath the front but I wouldn't mind doing this and using the headlights I've seen that have the signals built in at the bottom. I also have thought of shortening the front of the headlight housing about 3/4"-1" so they don't give quite the appearance of being bug-eyed as they do stock. Opinion?

Re: Thread #2: Early Hauler Pictures...

Oops, I forgot to add pictures. I've got a feeling this may become the official pre-'47 photo thread.

Here's a few; none of which are mine but all ones I've admired enough to save.

Re: Thread #2: Early Hauler Pictures...

3/4" in height on the buckets?Like setting them down into the fender a bit?Might look good.It`s sutle.I see a lot of guys try to change that bug-eyed look and it`s a big mistake,IMO.It is what it is and vehicles back then all had the fender top-mounted lights.They just belong.The next trend was to put them into the fenders,but other changes in styling/proportions were made,too.

No, NOT in height.

If you look at the red truck above with the wood bed stakes you can see that the headlight pods stick out about an inch from the front of the truck and then the chrome headlight ring starts. If I did the mod; and it's a big if, it would be to take a 1" section out of the pod so that chrome headlight ring started right at the body instead of the pod jutting out an inch. Still buggie - but just a little less bug-eyed.

Kabwe, If you're still watching this thread, I'd like to hear your opinion? I just bought a used Hobart 140 MIG welder - though it's been 20 years since I welded, and then it was stick welding - I'm thinking if I take my time and watch the heat that a mild mod like this would be within my limited abilities. What do you think of the idea and of my chances of pulling it off successfully?

Here is my buddy Jason's (THE UGLY) truck when we found it in a junk yard. I will gather up a few more pictures and start a build thread for him.

Re: Thread #2: Early Hauler Pictures...

I`d say it`s Woodland Green.It`s a timeless color that is still used in the fleet paint program.In`72 it was code# 504,I believe,and also known as Dark Green.I`ve had a`50,`72 Blazer,and my`92 K3500 I ordered in that color (the only one of it`s kind) to carry the tradition on.

Re: Thread #2: Early Hauler Pictures...

Here's my 39 that I got a few months ago. This pic was taken just before I loaded her up.

Todd68Chevy, how 'bout more info on yours? That's kinda what I was thinking for my 1.5 ton, but I was concerned how it would look with the wide front fender opening.

Here's mine....

Re: Thread #2: Early Hauler Pictures...

63&64 BOWTIES, If you have not already seen, LIZ did move my truck pictures to its own thread labeled TODD68CHEVY in this section. I added some more pictures in that thread. I also added some comments in your thread. Feel free to ask any questions and I will answer the best I can. If you look at my pictures you can see how small a reg. 15" looks but you could go with a larger wheel and tire and probably make it look ok. I am modifying 1/2 ton fenders to work with the lower running boards so mine will have smaller openings. If you used 1/2 running boards I think 1/2 ton fenders will bolt up. I need the lower running boards to cover the frame. The 1993 S10 frame I used was also to wide and the engine and transmission locations were not correct so all that had to be modified. Thanks, Todd

Good looking trucks and it looks like the Elcamino in picture 2 is also a good looking ride.
