So lately I have been away from the bench. So I started to dig through some old stuff I started and dug up this amt 50 Chevy pickup I cut the top off of and chopped the windshield. I found the top and it will be chopped and reattached.

By the end of the day and one SSR kit later I have this:

So I am going to build the truck with the ssr chassis and drivetrain. It fit SO well all I did was cut out the rear fenderwells of the ssr chassis and removed the inner fenders from the ssr interior tub. I'm going to update the truck but it will still look like a 50 pickup.

Nice kitbashing choices Jared.You should be able to intergrate a lot of the SSR into the 50.

Agreed. I'm planning something pretty similar.

Thanks guys.

So I have been working on the roof and frenching the headlights into the fenders. I also added the ssr tailights and I am going to add the door handles too. It still needs alot more work especially on the roof.

Still working on this one very slowly. The cab still needs some more work but it's getting there. Haven't done much to the bed either. I did start on adding the ssr interior to the truck and did some engine bay work.

I love the idea. Wasn't the SSR supposed to basically be a modern take on the 50 Chevy anyway? Ill be watching. Keep up the good work

Great work so far Jared, I wish i could have used the SSR rims on mine, but since I didn't plan ahead, they wouldn't fit the suspension that comes with the kit. Should be a great color on this one too, keep it going!
