Not so chev

Hey guys, about that time of month for me to own a new car so here it is. The wife loves this one so I guess will have this one for awhile. 1950 F1 ford, 350 chev and t350(I know it's a ford and even I don't like chevs in fords), a/c p/s,p/w and reversing camera . Needs a lot of this and that to get to the standard I like but that's what I enjoy doing.

Geez Ken, you must be a fussy bastard. Apart from the boom handle hood rod, truck looks pretty good to me.

That's a sweet looking truck, I love the late 40's early 50's trucks, esp those monster grille's. How do you feel for the wire wheels Ken, I have to say I'm not feeling em on that truck

I hear ya Chris and I'm definitely not cleaning the bastards. Gotta check what is available in 22's and 20's as I love the stance but no idea what the stud pattern is. Got a Camaro front r&p apparently and an 8" rear diff so who knows.

Where / how did you find it (and what happened to the predecessor)?

Looks great Ken. Will have me an earlier 50's truck one off these days! Have to agree with Chris the spokodokes are a bit lowriderish.

Sold the wagon to a good bloke in Sydney, dude rand me wed, flew up Thursday and paid me cash. Love people like that. Been following this ute for about 6 months on East Coast hot rods Facebook page. On the way to cooly stopped to have a look at this truck as he had dropped the price two days before. Stopped in and did a bit of negotiating and the deal was done. I think I stole it to be honest but it needs a lot done to me.

Looks sweet Ken. I'd love an old pick up one of these days. I think Detroit Steel Wheels will look killer on this. I know they do 20's but pretty sure I've seen 22's

I know disco. I feel a bit dirty going to the dark side. No idea on length of keeping it. It seems that once I get a car finished to a standard I get bored. Like I said earlier though the wife really likes this car(1st one since the Camaro) so probably for a fair while. I need to get a job soon so I can buy some more toys. Had a couple months off after selling my business so any more toys will have to wait.
Thanks Al it is pretty neat but just a lot of stuff needs doing. e.g. Just finished putting on electronic ignition. It rely son the weight of the bonnet keeping it down with no catch :O, the brakes are terrible, cracks in the paint etc etc.
Thanks everyone for the good words you know how it is, we are all the worst critics of our own cars.
