Progress on 46 1/2 Ton



Rebuilt engine and 3-speed trans went in nicely.

It has been painted Greenfield Green and will be coming home in a couple of weeks to finish the interior.

I had to buy a new front panel but the rest is original. I can't wait to see the whole thing put together.

Truck is now all put together

Here it is with the trim on and painted. It looks beautiful; I cannot wait to see it in the sunlight.

I love how you are restoring the truck back stock. No extra chrome, just an honest truck.

The grille bars are original, they aren't perfect, but I think that adds character. I had 2 sets of original bars and I used the best of the two. That was the original bed wood. I didn't put it back in because I decided to use the bed frame supports that were on the bed floor that I used (much stronger).

Thanks for saying that. My intention from the beginning was to restore it as close to original as possible. I have had so many comments and naysayers about my plan. Nice to have a positive response.
