Hello, My name is Gordy,
\Took me about 3 years to make a 1942 fire truck cab into a chevy short box pickup. Found a 1979 chevy long bed pickup truck. Used that chassis to build this pickup. Took 24" out of the frame. Small bock chevy motor with a 400 turbo tranny. Did all the work myself except the body work and paint, and interior. First time I tried something like this. Fun Fun.
Looked over this web site many times in the last 3 years but never took the time to join. Have some parts to sell when I can figure out what to do and how to post it!! Still learning at an old age.
Hopefully I have a couple of pics from where it started and the finished pickup.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

thanks you all. Have to figure out how to run all this stuff. HA HA Thought it would be more fun to drive a pickup than a fire truck on a Sunday afternoon.
