We took an old Oklahoma farm truck that we found in New York State
and did a full frame off "Rodstoration"
This was our first complete build and we did everything from mechanicals, body modifications,
interior, wiring, and even paint (although we had some help with the final spray).
Here's what the truck looked like when we brought it home.
Below you can see as we start the long rebuilding process.
We got the truck down to the frame and started to do modifications and rust
We started with a new smooth firewall, and then replaced
While the body was off, we test fit the new 350 engine and transmission.
We took the cab to Michigan to have it dip stripped and PPG E-Coat, dip primed.
It's the same epoxy primer coating new cars are coated with. This process
ensured it was totally rust free and protected for another 60 years!!
After test fitting the bed, we started mocking up the rolled pan.
Then it was on to making smooth inner fender walls and a tilt for the nose.
Next it was on to the interior and the bed wood.
Finally it was time for body work, prime and paint.
We built our own home spray booth and got to spraying.
Then came time to put it all back together.
Oh, wiring, how I love wiring!! About 25 hours later...it fired 1st try!!!
Under it's own power for the 1st time, I test drove it down the street.
No doors, no nose, temporarily mounted bed...but it ran great!
And that is the end..
