I just finished this up and took it for its first drive on Saturday. This site has been a great resource for parts and information. Thanks to all.

I love the look of the lower bed platforms and how they are integrated with the rear fender. :-)

Great work, but I have a correction: They're never done.

Looking good. I suppose you are like me in that when people ask if you are the guy with the old truck you wonder which one they are talking about.
Very nice work. You should be proud of it.

If it runs as good as it looks, you have a very good truck. It should attract a lot of attention wherever you drive it.

Ok, I guess it is "mostly" done! I did all of the work except for the engine and transmission that were rebuilt by Kevin Prus Sr. It runs fantastic. It also helps to have Ron Patterson's coils and a Stan Howe OF.

Great looking truck, something to be proud of.

I'm originally from Butler PA so when I get a chance to go back home for a visit I may give you call.

My grandfather Cole had a green 63 just like that with a 223 and short bed. My dad inherited it and sold it soon after because it was so slow.My mother named it the Slow Turtle. Wish we still had it though.
I like that c cab. I have a cab but have not done anything with it but keep a tarp over it.

Nice job Justin, Can you post a before picture for us?
Also where did you get the pattern for the Windshield Visor?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Justin H. - Western PA on Monday, May 30, 2016 - 05:59 pm:

Fred, I started with just the cab which belonged to my Great Grandfather's brother. Everything else I had to find.

The original upper flap was on mine still so I used it as a pattern. Let me know if you want some measurements.

To follow up on the comment made by Steve Jeff that "they are never done" reminds me of another comment I recall reading on this forum, "You should have at least 3 Model Ts. One to drive, one to work on and one for parts." Your truck looks great, thanks for posting the picture.
