Yes the trucks are all Photoshopped, and were labeled so in the original post. The peach and cream 1956 as told to me by the owner started as a pickup and mated with the back of a panel truck using the side panels uncut, 6 inches add to the length of the door and the front wheels move forward. I did a drawing of something similar 20 years ago and I like the concept of the truck, but I don't like the truck it self. The guy how built it did a real nice job of putting it together and weather I like it or not it is a great truck,( IF EVERYBODY BUILT THEIR TRUCK TO CONFORM TO WHAT I LIKE THE WORLD OF CLASSIC TRUCKS WOULD BE NO FUN.) Lets learn to appreciate what others think is cool or what they can afford to build, like it or not this guy built a nice truck. As for the Photoshop done to the truck goes as follows. The flat green 40 has different wheels and is lower. The green chop top 56 is done the same. The 56 Bronco has the wheels enlarged and is lowered, front wheel opening moved back, the door is shortened, the space from the rear fender to the back of the door removed, the rear fender is shortened and the original wheel opening placed back at original spot from the front of the fender and last but not least the back is turned into a Bronco. The next one the body is left at the original length, wheels are larger and only the front wheel opening is moved back and lowered. The last one the wheels enlarged, front wheel opening moved back, door shortened, bed shortened between the back of the door and the front of the fender. So there you have it straight from the horses mouth. http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/s....php?p=8947258

56 merc 100, Weclome to FTE. Thanks for the explanation of what Photoshop work was done to those trucks. Do you have photos of the unPhotoshopped trucks? It would be cool to compare them. First to see what the trucks really look like and second to study the Photoshop work. It's amazing what people can do with photoshop. Well also because we love pictures.
Around here we have all sorts of tastes. I'm more of a stock type of guy. We generally aren't afraid to give our opinion as to what we like and don't like, but we love all quality craftsmanship. That reminds me, I wonder how the Zil 130 project is going?
Do you have any pictures of your truck you would like to share? Did you do that Photoshop work? Very nice work.
FP, I've said it before, but that is a beauty. I'm jealous.
Keith, Holy Cow! I love the fact that you put the Ford shield tail lights on your truck. I'm not sure of your thinking, but I see it as an homage to the original on your slightly customized truck. Cool stuff.
