Hope your frame/body idea works Skull. If it was me, I'd just cut out the curved belly portion and weld in straight pieces to get a more reasonable width. Still might have to widen the body a bit, but not as much.

This suggestion crossed my mind, too. But, how many T-buckets do you see that will sit 3 or 4 wide? I'd ride in it!

How about a rolling hot tub?

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Talking dash

"How about a rolling hot tub?"


a hot tub time machine, l will have


a friend donated a 1960ish truck dash, gotta shorten it a little bit thru the middle and trim to fit, then make a custom gauge mounting panel to replace the stock one.

Default stuff

l got the headlights and buckets today, going to give the several little halogens in the new style headlights a try, built in turn signals and running lights helps by not having to wire them separate and find mounting places.

The dash in that pic is a '60-'63. The '64-'66 dash is way more straight and plain looking.

Default tbi to carb

weird carb/intake set-up for THAT.

a friend had a dually he was going to change from TBl to carbed. ended up selling the truck so he gave me this 454 big block chevy edelbrock TBl intake he's not ever going to use.

so in the true spirit of use what ya have theory for hot/rat rod building l am using the TBl with some reverse engineering with the cheap low dollar, free parts and stuff l had in the shop hanging on the wall for a long-long time

l am making the set-up by taking a TBl adapter plate and with a little dremmel work on the 4-barrel spacer/adapter it should make a 6OO carb work on the intake, may look a little funky and l wonder what it will run like, but l like experimenting and the car is just for fun anyway.

the only two parts l have $$ in is the transdapt adapter and the carb rebuild kit.

Talking valve covers

my stock ones have dents and look horrible but on D'BAY l got a set of stamped flamed ones for cheaper than a set of stock ones.

don't have to clean and paint or work on the stock ones, to me that is a good thing, l like the remove & replace sometimes
