I got this truck from my dad. It did have dual rear axles, and I removed one, moved the remaining one up to a point central to the two and set it there. I lengthened the driveshaft and beefed up the frame a bit. I added Evergreen square tube to the rear top part of the frame, after removing the big rig trailer hauling apparatus thing (you might know what I mean). The bed is from some tandem trailer, cut a bit. I added a CB radio with antenna, blacked out the grille to give it a bit of a newer look (plasticky, more like) and weathered the whole thing with rust powder underneath and black wash on EVERYTHING except for the front windshield. Bumper is currently AWOL, but I cut it so it's only as wide as the grill.

This was fully unpainted when I got it. All baby blue and black. Now it's all Farmall Red and black! :D

Actually, this is a perfect match for Farmall paint. We got it to repaint our Farmalls, a Cub with a PTO and dually rear wheels, an A (which we sold) and an H which hasn't been repainted yet because it runs terribly and is awaiting restoration.

I keep fighting with the stupid bed to get it flat, but I can't manage it.... I'll deal with it when I do the exhaust, Mansfield bar and whatever they call the bars to keep the cargo from going through the cab.

Nice work on this one....Looks good...I'd love to see slightly better focus, but I think I can see where the subtle weathering has been applied.....Good job...
