Im calling this one done. After a 3 years collecting parts from all over the world. The last parts came in yesterday. This was 2 junk Little Red Trucks and a Warlock bed and various small bits from some very helpful members on here .  I really like this truck although I struggled to get everything to line up when it came to final fitting. The hardest parts to find was the rear lights mirrors and the tailgate which I found in one of my own parts boxes!

Anyway enough from me please enjoy and comments welcome

Dave,

Looks great! I know how much work this was, and how it feels to call it done!?

Very cool. Nicely done conversion. I have a similar project I hope to get to soon. It will be a ‘72 in two tone brown. I have contemplated the difficulties in getting a good smooth roof. Yours looks great. Did you have much trouble getting it right?

Yeah it took quite a bit of work to get right. I did lay some thin plastic across the join between the cab's just to make up the curve of the rear roof then filled sanded then filled then sanded some more. But it was worth the effort to get it right. Then I added thin round rod for the rain gutter

Very nice result. I like builds like this where you have a unique vision and carry it all the way to fruition. Great job.

It remind me a coworker's truck at my very first job (he sadly passed away few years ago... way too young).  That was a '72, same blue paint but without the white underbody accent... a real workhorse... unstoppable!   Nice job Dave!!!

What did you do for long frame

I cut up a LRW chassis and added it to the chassis from the 78 long bed kit
