Pro street truck

Anyone here know of a Pro Street dentside ? I just picked up a '78 2wd shorty. I've always dreamed of building a Pre Street 78-79, and now it can happen (if I ever finish my 79 Crew!). I'd love to see some pic's if anyone's got any. Thanks as always !!!

THANKS for the response !! I like your truck a lot, nice build !!! I have a few questions maybe you can answer ? I'd like the truck to sit low to the ground AND run steam rollers out back. Do you know if this is possible ? Second, how did you lower the front end ? Kit or home job. Thanks for any help

The way that we are lowering the front of mine is by having a frame shop bend the I-beams. You must also run shorter springs when you do this. Hope this helps.

As far as dropping the rear end down the best way that I have seen is to C notch the rear frame above the rear end.

Also anyone know where I can find a hood or a scoop like the one on the blue truck?

Thanks,

Frank-N-Ford

You can get that full fiberglass cabs, doors, fenders, beds, front clips at usbodysource.com, and at up22.com. That hood looks to be full fiberglass and not just a scoop, and looks like a model fd-384 4" rise at up22.com. It weighs only 60#'s and cost $400. I'm sure that would save about 100 + pounds on the front end of this truck....a great start. Now if you could just stuff a 2011 5.4 aluminum block GT500 motor in there....102 + lighter than iron 5.4, 550hp, 510 tq, with decent mpg. That would make a great start to a killer pro/street truck. Speaking of that, does anyone know of anyone who has ever pulled off a 5.4 swap into one of these trucks?
