Except for door windows, the closed cab pickup is finished. Went from a pile of parts and lots of work to finished. Paid for by profit from selling spare parts. I was tight with money, so cut down touring seat springs and made seats. The backrest is just a 2 inch foam pad. pickuppickup twopickup three

Nice job, it looks like it will be a lot of fun, I also was wanting to do this, it just makes sense. Thanks for sharing.

I was lucky enough to see it in person. Impressive Jim .
My wife would have loved that this morning . When we left for breakfast in the roadster it was about 40 degrees.
Love it
Drive safe and often

Nice work Jim. Did you use foam in the seats or springs? PK

Jim
This is my new toy
Just got it home tonight
I don't think I'll have it done in 4 1/2 months though.
I don't have the energy you seem to have.
It is a pretty solid kansas car with lots of dents and JOHNDEER GREEEEEN !
I do need a couple of E brake rods for 26 if you know of any
Drive safe and often

That neat pickup turned out just great!
I've an open cab version that showed up here in August. Not NEAR as nice as your pickup tho. :-)

Dallas, that new roadster has the windshield in it! Cool. :-)

Duey
Jim's truck is very nice.Maybe he would trade for a nice green roadster??
The roadster is more complete than my pickup but I need rear brake rods for 26 if you have any in your parts pile.
How is your project coming?

Dallas, I got diddly-dee for brake rods.
The original set for my '18 and perhaps some bent up/pretzeled model A brake rods. Dunno for sure.
Jim trading for a green/dented roadst.. Emmmm, Perhaps!
;-)
Tin Cup (the '18)? SLOW.
