Heres the start, Hacked up a lightning bed and put the sides on the original bed from the 56 ford, then glued the fenders onto the bed. Hoping to make a cummins for it. Mirrors and cab lights from revell peterbilt 359, wheels and tires from ford l8000, hoping for stacks too, and hopefully 4x4. Heres my inspiration a drawing from this past summer and the real deal, followed my my progress.

Finally Declared the body work done, left some "dents" in the bed and fenders on accident so the story is it was a work truck so some abuse happened...

Interesting your method of widening the front. Here is my 56 ford ALF pumper the I widened the wheel wells on using the existing fender trim cut off then cut into pieces and glued out further using evergreen strips then used filler in the gaps.

nice work

yeah i know theres a cummins but after rolling my truck in january i have to save my money to get a new truck this was a present as the kit and any parts i got for it were purchased before my truck ended up upside down in a ditch... But if it hadnt of happened i would have hunted this engine down. Didnt get any work done on it today was a friends birthday so we got 11 of us together and went mudding a dodge and chevy got stuck though, my ford never got stuck when i had it... anyway work should come tomorrow.
