Found this link on the HAMB - it's being done at Steve's Auto Restorations. Even if it's not your cup of tea, there is some top-notch metal work going on. I especially like the treatment on the end of the bed, where it's been canted forward to match the roof pillar. Just change them oogly wheels!

Fordguy,

I don't particularly like those large diameter wheels either, but like they say, opinions are like assets...everbody has 'em. That's not exactly the saying, but I cleaned it up a little. Nice work on the body though.......

Speechless, What steel work wow that is some real talent. I would like to see that truck finshed. I could never cut my 57, I like the stock look.

I have seen that link posted before(I forgot about it though and they actually update their site!) so I'm even more impressed. Looks like 4.6 DOHC with a kenny bell supercharger is the power plat. The econoline pickup tailgate is an awsome touch. It's turning out better than I thought it would. Thanks for the link, -4speed

I'm partial to the "stock" look myself, but I am totally impressed with the artwork and sheetmetal skills put into that truck.

I love the look of this truck......the dark side calls !!
This hood mod is what someone was looking for this past summer i think. They wanted to cut the nose down so it sloped and not have the famous "refriderator look" we all like.
