 Blair I like the  super singles on the drive axels! Nice touch. About three weeks ago I pulled out a Fred Caddy 50 Ford COE from my stock and started it as well (Great minds think alike they say)  I sit mine down on the Revel 2n1 (yellow box art) chassis with the lowered suspension.     I as well stretched my bed as well to compensate for the short cab length. Now for the 22" low pro's or stock wheels with the monster whites?   I started to use the dually ford chassis by Monogram but didn't saving it for another day.  

Looks like a cool trend coming on!  Keep it coming!!


 

The Chevy COE is really sweet! Don't stop now! B)

Its nice a frame was included I am not familiar with SJS I'm going to have to check them out.  Did a google search and clicked on images. Seems these old Cab overs are slowly coming back to life.

Gramps.. SJS has been gone for years.  They did a few interesting things like a 1950 Ford Ice Cream Truck and a Studebaker Champ pickup.  Best chance now is RMR for cabovers.

Okie dokie! There used to be a guy here in Wichita  whom had a 5o chevy COE on a short bed frame & used the (Rare hard to find) 8' bed to fill up the excess.  Everyone laughed at him then but now  cool stuff ! Cant wait to see your pics!

Aw nuts! same as Fred Caddy! thanks for the heads up.

I had to drop the front motor mounts so the large modified flat head that came in the yellow 2n1 would fit under the floor pan & dog house I fabricated to accept the engine . The stacks on my carbs have been removed and I am searching for an appropriate air cleaner. Hope to see some more pics  from everyone's work!

On mine,  I cut out a portion of the floor board and made a dog house as the 1:1 would have for the clearance for the engine. The Big flat head that comes with the 2n1 kit,  The aftermarket High performance heads are very large as for the velocity stacks on the three deuce set up is a little high BUT !  I solved this issue by carefully cutting  the front engine mounts out and dropping them to the bottom edge of the frame adding some styrene to make them "look believable" and filed down the rear mount just ever so slightly to level out the Big Flat head that came with the 2n1 kit.  Problem solved... The dog house is still needed,  But not a huge monstrous unit.  A mild modification was only needed.  Hope this helps. The Chevy mill, that also came to mind  but I wanted to be some what of a Purist  and keep the High performance flat head. ;)  Thanks for sharing your ideas!
