Default 54 Studebaker​ truck

My son is getting a great start on the Studebaker truck he got from me. Put it on a Dodge Shelby Dakota frame. He'll probably will have his done before I finish mine. But that's why he got the truck.

That's gonna be a nice truck. I have always wanted one of those since I just missed buying one several years ago. It had a hot 302 Ford with a 4 speed top loader in it, medium blue, deep slotted aluminum wheels. Haven't seen it since I missed buying it.

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.

A little more progress on the brakes. Trying to use parts from the donor truck.

Jesse figured out the steering using oem steering u joints. He could have moved the engine back but everything fit in the stock position behind the grille.






Floor of the bed cut out and positioned in place.
