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..

WAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!! I love these kind of projects!! keep this updated for sure!! I am all about this kind of stuff. I live and breathe it. You should check out the "back to the fifties" car show we have here in MN. it's the weekend of June 18 and is 3 days long. It brings in over 11,000 cars from all over the nation. One of the biggest car shows in the nation! you can enter anything that is 1964 or older.
