1958 GMC Extended Cab Pickup Build

07 January 2013 - 05:08 PM

This is the start of my first model build-up in over 10 years... this is how I'd like to build the real truck... it will be a '58 GMC extended cab 4-door pickup, with a late-model engine married to a Saginaw 4 speed overdrive hybrid transmission (yes, it CAN be done). It will have Corvette-style rally wheels on RWL radial tires, and all the creature comforts afforded in a late-model pickup. The actual truck will have a short fleetside bed, but I'm using the Cameo bed for the model (unless someone knows where I can get the short fleetside bed?)


I ordered the cab, frame and interior tub from Ron Andrews, and I am extremely pleased with them! The detail and fit are great, and at a reasonable price!!!


I am still looking for tires, door handles, and the short fleetside bed, if anyone has any suggestions... I also welcome any other ideas!! Thanks for looking!!
