ID:	114700I am building a 53 Willys pick em up truck. Like everyone else I wanted a 30's Ford but alas they are pricey and hard ti find. So I found this Willys right in my neighborhood and now I'm very happy to start with something so off the wall. I purchased this from a guy who owned it for over 30 years. It sports a Z'd frame with a modified wheelbase. I have a 302 motor with a C4 and a Ford 9 inch. I am running a dropped straight I beam in the front. The body is chopped and channeled with a home made flat top replacing the factory bubble top. I am hoping to put a flat olive drab paint job on it and the main theme is "Trucky".

    I'm in La Habra. I'd be happy to help you with a starting point. I am well into my project and I have figured quite a few thins out. Should be getting the engine and trans back this coming week. Got the cab primed 1st coat. Should have it painted soon. I'll put the new items on the rolling chassis and it should look like a hot rod. Now it's all the little things which there is no shortage of.
