Default It's been a while

So anyway, I guess I did an intro at some point way back when and it never occurred to me to search my history until my son reminded me you can do that Dad. duh...

My current ride is a 1962 Chevy C10 (avatar) static drop, 283/auto, etc.

What lies ahead as far as projects includes a late 40's IH KB pickup body on a Dakota chassis with air ride, 360/5 speed, and due mainly to necessity, suffering for lack of refinement. Compiling parts and working out the details.

Anyone point me to someone who has already engineered a similar set up?

Welcome back. I can't help you with the Dakota setup, but somebody will.

I think it was Flipper that used a Dakota frame under a 40's Fargo {Dodge} truck, look for his build thread for some ideas.
