Back when I redid this truck I never did put an engine in it. I had a 383 from the Revell Nova kit, so in it went, finally!

Pretty basic, brush painted, weathered and washes. Drilled and wired distributor.

​Thanks Blair, I'm fresh out of truck kits. I do have a 64 Impala I am considering a worn look on. There is a free swap meet com'n up in Sharron, Pa next month I hope to pick a few trucks up then.

I love the look this truck has! Are those the Pegasus chrome reverse wheels with their wide whites? I bought three sets with the thin whitewall and later found out they also were available with wide whites. <_<

Yes there are, but I switched them myself. I did not know they were available that way. And thank you for the reply.

What tires did you use? They have the exact look I'm after for my '60 Ford pickup.
