ok, well where to start? Im slowly building this truck, it will never be pretty, but I love it. There is some good old southern engenering involved in it. Ill post lots of pics as I go.

Ok, time to go redneck. I had the gas pedal rust off, well the hinge on it did, along with the spot in the floor where it goes. I went to walmart and bought a hasp lock. Then the fun began.

body work is not my thing, and I admit it freely. THe grill on this truck is wasted, but its why i love the truck, so I get to outbackparts.com and buy a new one for $300. But in the mean time I went to a boneyard and picked up some beauty rings for the headlights..They werent in beautiful shape, but were fairly straight. A lil time with a composite wheel has them ready for the new grill, you know, when I can afford it.

The next big project is the motor swap. I have to go v8 cause as it is I top out at 45mph. There is a book called "Truck, A Love Story" by Michael Perry that states if you are pulled over in an IHC for speeding, they dont give you a ticket, they give you an award. Yeah I know Im going small block chevy because thats what I have, but it wont be a 350. Its a 327/th350. the automatic is temporary, again what I have. I want a 3 speed on the floor, I just love that boost between 1st and second. I ordered the cross member in november for it, and it arived 2 nights ago. Unfortunatly it is snowing now and it will be a bit before I can do the swap since I have no garage. Here are some pictures. you will see the stock silver diamond 220 rated at 90 horse way back when it was brand new (over 50 years ago). The 300 horse 327, and the crossmember. Yes I'll clean the leaves off the 327 when I pull it.

So i hate the stock mirror. I had this motorcycle mirror hanging out that i had no use for. Ideas began sparking, and since I had a drill bit, boom why not.

with the exception of sanding half the cab and the drivers side door and putting them in primer, you are now caught up. More will come as soon as the weather and budget permit.
