52 Dodge stepside pickup.

Post  Jonny James on Fri 12 Feb 2010, 10:14 am

G'day guys.

This is my latest project.

1952 Dodge/De soto truck that i have been placing on a HQ van chassis, to make a step side pick up as my new work truck.

I purchased and removed the truck cab on the 31-1-2010.



and by that night i have the cab cut and sitting down on the HQ chassis.



this is where the back of the cab had to be cut and folded to fit over the chassis.







dummy mock sitting on chassis.

01-02-2010





more later.

That's fantastic! Great work to channel the body - looks tough as when it's sitting on the chassis.

Keep us posted!
