I love the big back window. I can't wait to see this one done. I'm still dragging along on my C-10.

Nice my favorite truck body, 55-59. Just driving that thing around would be so sweet!

Some old school / patina graphics in a contrast color would look great with that finish.

Progress pics. Motor and trans mount done. Fuel done, radiator installed with ic attached. Trans cooler and lines done. Battery and bed mounted. Windshield in, still waiting on rear window install. Ecm tcm mounted and wired with a donor kodiac harness.

Everything is super tight but fits very well. Canít wait to be rolling down the street. Hopefully in a couple weeks.

It’s is definitely pointless but in this frame it doesn’t make a difference. As the motor cannot get any lower without being exposed below the crossmember. And when it’s laid out the crossmember is on the ground.

We could have removed both pans and modified them like the others but over all hieght is really good, so less work is better.
