Well figured I would share the quick details of what I have planned for 3 trucks and would love feed back on these ideas.
First is a roadster styled F-150 longbed, got a racecar builder who is going to fab me a tube-frame and I plan to either run a 302 or 351W and build it to race with (touring cars not the drag-strip) but try and keep it street legal and comfortable. Only other thing I can say is that every part of the truck is going to be custom built from the headlight brackets to the four-link rearend, the idea is one that will give me a racecar like feel in a pickup.
Secondly there is "Major Ford", a truggy in progress ATM with a military influeanced style, which I plan to run 44" tires, with a handbuilt frame on which will hold the stock cab (minus the interiour) but will try and put all the body panels onto to give it the F-150 look, this truck is nearing completion and I promise pics as soon as I find my camera . (also all of the original parts for this truck I plan to list once I get them organized)
Lastly, I am planning to start a project on a F-250 on which I stretch the frame to fit a sleeper as well as a semi-truck style fifth wheel, other mods include dual axles for dual wheels, smoke stacks, a lift kit to handle semi sized tires, semi-style fuel tanks and battery boxes as well as other odds and ends that will give it a tractor trailer style feel, and interesting idea which I have called "Baby Blue" and can't wait to start.
And if you were wondering, everything is alot cheaper when you build it yourself! :P
