From Richard:

             Hi guys! Here are a few pics of my '57 (with a '56 nose) for the hi po's in the forum.

             It started out as a neat way to tow my boat -- but got out of hand. Not much of a tow vehicle now!

             It's powered by a built 472BBC with a turbo 400 hooked to a narrowed 9" with 10's and a locker. The front suspension is Dakota. The rear is a 4 bar. Behind that hangs a stang tank with bed fill. The truck has power rack and 4 wheel disc's. The steering column is from a series '30 Chevy walk in. The seat is from a mid '90's Chevy truck. It has one piece glass, tilt hood, and a smoothed dash with a digital gauge insert.

             It took two years of weekends to complete -- doing all the work myself.
