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?
I like the tires on the right side, but not the left. Nice to see that it won't be turning into a rat rod. The 'patina' looks great on it. Not sure if I'd keep the fluid drive. Cool truck none the less.
