54 Ford Project Update.

its been a while since i gave an update on my project, and i can't find my original post but here are a few things that have been done and a few pics.


we have the truck completly taken apart and we are starting to do a little needed body work and other mods.

here is the list of what has been done.



all body panels removed

pass front fender patched and primered

pass side step straightened and dents removed

all glass removed from cab

all sound deadning material removed from cab

motor and trans removed from frame

frame cut in front to mount doner front frame from late 70's model chevy truck

doner frame and suspension welded to original frame

rear diff and suspension removed from frame.

rear suspension and diff pulled from doner 98 lincoln mark 8

and here are a few pics of the truck when we got it for those of you who have not seen it.














and here are a few of the truck we got the motor from.












we had to cut the top off of it so we could move it around.. the truck was actually still drivable, but we had to do alot of makshift welding and strapping on the suspension lol..
