1948 Chevy Pickup
From David :
This is my classic Chevy pickup truck -- actually, this is my dream truck!
I started this Street Rod with a cab and front clip. I played the wheel base game in my head and books. I had a 1989 Chevy pickup that was junk! So, I cut the floor pan of the bed to fit the 1948 bed sides and bolted it to frame.
Then it was time to check the fender fit ... wow what a fit!
I used a 1-ton tranny jack to fit the cab and front clip. I cleaned all the cab mounts from the frame and cut the front to fit. This was pure luck on my part. It has worked so well.
I slid the motor back three inches to fit the engine compartment. I used a '98 GMC manuel shift steering column and wiring harness. No computer and still have "plug an play features" of '98.
The seat an seat belts came from the '89. It took two years to build this truck to its state of condition now.
