My 56 project

Hi guys,
This is the cab and doors from the truck my Dad taught me how to drive in.
It sat behind his barn for 20some years. It was really rusty, but I felt I needed to put the effort into saving it for sentimental reasons. Welded in rockers, corners, cowls, etc... got her close to paint now. It helps I own a body shop. Put a tci coil over suspension in front, 4 link in back and built a cleveland engine for it. Wish I had a customer job like this in the shop so I could work on an effie all day and not feel guilty, It's really a fun build.

Tim...nice work...too bad you can't charge yourself by the hour!...I especially like the motor mounts...is that your own design?One thing I can NEVER get straight...why was the cowl panel louvered on the passenger side of the cab only...because of the heater?I've got a '56 Effie in the garage also that is "waiting" for the parts pile to get large enough to actually get "sparks-flyin"...I also like your choice of MII IFS...but mine will be bagged...Which 4-link did you decide on??? I went with No Limit's FatBar w/Air Ride...ANYWAY...I didn't mean to hi-jack your thread...you got a really killer '56 Effie goin' there man...it'll be one mean machine...congrats...
