    Default From Splash in New Port Richie....MY 32..........

    Here is what my project looks like sooooo far.
    I THOUGHT IT WAS "OLD", BUT apparently not
    compaired to your type of 10's and 20's. Mine
    is only a 1932....//Perhaps I should check and see
    if there are any "ReCalls" on it....Hey maybe I might
    still have some "Warrentry" left on it..........
    ( Just Jesting ) Your trucks are COOOOL.

    Ha, those are all cool, i was beginning to think no-one would indulge my request. Early 30's is OK i guess the more square and boxy the better in my eyes... ha

    Boneyardrats, that is a great looking truck, thats the kind of truck id love to have for everyday driving around town and hauling stuff, i love the wood sides on the bed. i like to see them with a hood too, it looks better to me, while still a little ratty.

    Hillbilly, What are your plans for that? good looking grill, whats it from?

    Not 100% sure what the plans are yet. Theres a show/swap meet comin up in 2weeks. I'll take the finished body there and try to rob somebody blind. If it doesnt sell i was thinking keeping it mostly Willy parts, or willys jeep related parts.

    Im looking for a Continental 6 out of a Jeepster for it, and a Dana 44 out of a Jeep.

    That grill is a modified Farmall tractor grill. I was going to use it on my last build, but came across another grill i couldnt refuse.
