Incredible build! Remember seeing your engine earilier and blown away by it! This looks epic! Those sub assemblys are nice enough to be on display without the truck!

I am glad to see you progressing on this beautiful little truck Lorne!  Any update is a move in the right direction.  Those components are simply awesome! 👌

Rear axle complete! Had to do the 4 link frame over again, the upper shock mounts went south after test fitting again,.... oh well

Very nice so far, well, except for the wheel and tire combo, sorry, but low pro tires on classic vehicles ( and most others too) looks terrible to me. But hey, each to their own.

Your right to each there own. I like the idea that there is a wide variety and combinations to choose from to create "your" own vision/version of a dream ride! the possibilities are endless!!

Hi Lorne, not sure how I missed this thread for this long. WOW!! This is my kind of truck, what a beauty. Absolutely killer stance. It sure is inspiring to watch builders like yourself, Tim H, Francis L, Claude T, and others creates these incredible masterpieces. Looking forward to seeing the body in  paint. 
 

Cheers, Steve

Thank you Lorne for the sentiment you've shared.  I'm getting anxious to see all these beautiful sub-assemblies on the truck.  Granted I'm sure not as much as you are, but it's certainly shaping up to be a gorgeous build.   cheers, tim

Very nice work and attention to detail on the suspension!! I'm starting a build on a '55 Cameo Fleetside and your build has given me some great ideas, thanks for sharing. Where did you get the back half frame though or is that something scratch-built?

The frame is scratch built for the 4 link. A ton of test fitting!! Good Luck and thanks for your interest!!

Hey landman, don't throw anything away! This is a great hobby!! Mated the Muncie to the big block awhile back. Sure glad the internet has reference pics!

Thanks for following along!

You did a great job with the 4 speed Muncie and shifter hardware Lorne!   It's hard not to like a 3-pedal truck!!! 👍

Hey Lorne.  Beautiful work with the RD Unique front end.  The plumbing you added to the rack appears to be spot on.  I am digging one of those out of my aftermarket stash to throw under my 56 F100.  Like you, I wish I had a few more, I only have 2 that have not been used. As everyone else has already said, all of your work is fantastic!

Hey butter

Yes, I would really like to get a few more of the RD Unique front ends!! Would also like to see 3D printing of that same front clip!! I think "any" part will be available one day (3D printing). Or,.... you could have the talent like Francis or Tim! Just machine your own!!  WOW! I still shake my head on their stuff?!!
