Default '47 Dodge shop truck

My current wife seems to think I have some kind of problem.
She says I'm crazy for driving 1600 miles in 2 1/2 days to bring this
"PILE" home. She just likes to give me and my childish mind a hard
time. I can tell she really likes it.

Got it from Hankthebigdog. Thanks Brother.

Let the fun begin.

Paint and patina look nice. I would be for moving the headlights closer together tho.
What are your plans Pops?

Awesome ride Pops! I really dig those pre-Pilothouse era trucks a lot too. What's the plans for it/ what's been done already?

Your wife sounds like mine, whatever make me happy.
I like those years of Dodge trucks. The design is great until they got to the headlights then, it was like, oh crap where we gonna put the headlights aaaaa this looks good to me and I know a guy that has thousands of them in stock too
I'll be watchin this build
