Well if that's your thing, here's the project I have waiting in the wings...
It won't be a rod, just bone stock with some updates to make it a reliable daily driver. Great Grandpa bought it brand new in '48.
'48 Dodge 1 ton with the special looonnngg bed, straight six flathead and a "fluid drive" transmission. Dad learned to drive it when he was 8.
Maybe I should just leave the hood off an call him Mater?
