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.

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.
