O.K. so before you write me and tell me how dumb I is, lemme tell ya watcha lookin at.
Here we have a titled 1952 GMC pick-um-up-truck with a Chevy frontal lobotomy.
I like the GMC's cause they were the heavy duty work trucks which meant the had a much stronger heavier gauge stamped frame. But I could never get past the front clip of the work horses. See these AD trucks will always have a special place in my heart because this was the first car I ever built.
I started on a 1952 AD pickup when I was the ripe ole age of 14. I bought this one for my wife, which was really just a lame excuse for me to relive my childhood.
This will be a relatively updated project with a traditional skin.
So what does a heavy frame mean? A 454 ci Big Block Chevy.
I am sure this one will be black with white walls and rollin low on Astro Supremes!!
This is my 34 ford pickup. She is my primary driver and will be getting a tear down when the other projects are finished. She will have 1960 show-rod vibe. I'll keep the whites but re mount them on Radir's. The engine will be replaced with a built 292 Y Block stroker w/ matching 6x2 94's. I'm thinking Metallic blue on this one. Yup.....Color.........
