I love it, I have also decided SOME trucks will be allowed.

Truck must be no later than 1960.

so only the '53 ford kit, '56 ford kit, both '60 chevy's, both '55 chevy's, the '57 chevy's, the '50 ford kit, the '50 chevy kits, that really dosen't open any options for me, considering only the '55-'60 chevy were available with four wheel drive.

Not necessarily. Marmon-Herrington did 4x4 conversions on Fords from the late '40s (and posibly earlier) up to at least the late '50s (Ford came out with a factory 4x4 in '59), so that's an option. Plus, NAPCO did conversion kits similar to the ones they did for GM for Ford as well. They usually used the GM axles for the front.

O.k. you can do any truck jeep or suv. And yes That build you started envious will qualify.

Wel I'll join in with a 99 silverado. I still have to order the kit because my LHS didn't have it. I'll be making it a reg cab short bed. It'll be stock, I'll let you know when I order the kit.

as soon as i get the paint booth cleared out ill aplly some primer and shoot a few coats of mettalic silver

i will also paint the read fenders and several parts of the trailer to match :)

SU1HMDAxMDYtMjAxMDAxMTAtMTcwMS5qcGc.jpg

My problem is I have TOO MANY trucks to put together! B)

I think I can get in on this, though. I've got a Mint-In-Box unbuilt MPC '77 Chevy Dust Devil that's begging to be put together.
