39/41 Wagon Rod

Recommended Posts

Upcoming NNL West Theme: "Wagons and Wings"

Here is what I came up with. 

Took the body from the '39 Wagon Rod and dropped it on a '41 Chevy Truck chassis, thus replacing the UGLY front end of the Wagon Rod.

Dropped a small block in it, lowered the ride height, added whitewalls, part box wheels and "ratted" it up bit.

Front end looks so much better. What a great idea.

That front end was a very good idea! Looks much better than the original, for sure!

Now that is not only a great idea, but super nice execution as well.

Nicely done. Like the exhaust through the fender too.

This is awesome! The truck front end really works yet I don't think I'd have ever thought of it myself. I love the lightly weathered finish and the hubcaps are different in a cool way!

Great idea on the front end swap and the ageing looks just right as if it's in constant use.

Hi,

Wow this looks really really top shelf.

If it were a Scotch, it would be Lagavulin.
