The truck I am building is currently all over my yard. I am throwing out the stock suspension, wiring, interior, drivetrain and have to replace both front fenders and repair the rear fenders, make new bed boards, weld in a New Yorker clip, rebuild my 340, add A/C, etc... But I hope to be done for around 6K since I am doing everything myself. I don't think I could have a new truck for that money, since I will have basically done a frame off. It will cost mucho dinero now, but when I am done I will have a wicked daily driver. Is it worth the cost and effort? No way, but that won't stop me.
57 Plymouth Savoy in my family since new, just cosmetically restored, 93 S-10 waiting on the 50 Dodge truck to be built then one s_10 for sale, Angie's mechanic and designated Vette cusser.
