Default 1931 Chevy 4door into pickup.

So, Monday I picked up that 31 from behind this ol guys house, got her home, unloaded, and went to sleep. Tuesday, I organized it all to see what was there. Both back doors, 2 drivers front doors, a passenger front, 2 sets of front fenders, 2 sets of side skirts and running boards, both the rear fenders, a set of rear fenders and quarters from a Model A, most of the window parts, a few of the windshield pieces, the frame, a Model A axle, and a Model A headlight crossbar and housings. Today, I started to cut it apart to see how it'd look as a truck and to say the least, bad a$$. I figure the first step of a nightmare that these old Chevys are will be to put the body together the way I imagine as best I can. Once the tub is in a movable state, bring her into the shop and start framing it in.

File this project under, "Guys that are as fearless as smallfoot."

As soon as you said truck, I got interested. I'll be watching.

Have fun!

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.

Default sedan

did you consider makin' her a 2 door sedan?

l did that with the 3Osomething and it turned out well. if a truck turns out to be too much hassle, this is another opotion.

power plant and drive train plans???

I've seen cars done as trucks and it seems much easier than making it into a 2-door sedan. Just my opinion.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
