The guys in my family got together and built this custom truck for my nephew. It has a fresh 400 with an auto tranny, 2wd. We sanded it all down to bare metal and threw the bed away. My cousin built the flatbed and did all the mechanical , body, and interior work. The bed sides I made back in December. The stakes are cedar, side rails are beetle kill ( whoda thunk it?) and some support strips made from maple. The guys hauled it 650 miles to Iowa and surprised him with it on a trailer. He hadn’t seen any photos of it finished and didn’t know it was coming. Needless to say He was thrilled with it. My red 72 one ton looks horrible next to the new blue truck, but I’ll get new paint this summer.
