Finally, a cool truck
That's a 1950 Ford with a 358 Nascar engine in it.
Mustang front clip, power steering, disc brakes.
9" Rear end with custom ladder bars.
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?
Nice looking old truck, really cool that it's been in the family since it was new.
Me like but fords are my thing
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.
Would love to know the story behind this badass rig.........what is it made up of?

That stupid chicken tax has ruined a lot of potential vehicles for many years .
Me too... Dad has 3 old ford trucks, unfortunately they are 2 or 3 ton grain / dump trucks... He also has a nice 1 ton chevy with a dump box on the back that I got running a few years ago, I'd like to do that one next (right.... like I'll ever get to it).
I think this old Dodge is butt ugly, but it's growing on me and it definitely has a history. It was my high school shop project like 15 years ago- pulled the motor but it was too far gone to rebuild and couldnt find a suitable replacement. I have a replacement now, so it's HOPEFULLY just a matter of switching parts to the long block and dropping it in next summer...
Man I wish I could get one of these in the US[/QUOTE]
That has a Ford badge, I thought Holden was a GM company? My GF has a Commodore in Pontiac livery (G8).
I do like it, and it has a pretty good body for what it is. Get her running and you'll turn a lot of heads
Is that garage underground/a cave? Any more info on this space/collection?
Not entirely positive this counts as a "cool truck" but just picked up this 87 Subaru BRAT last week for a project.
