Happy New Year!

Post by blgitn » January 2nd, 2020, 2:01 pm

It was pretty nice this afternoon and I've been making some good progress on the big truck so I took it out for a little stretch.

I need 3 hinges for the drivers side rear door, if anyone has a few lying around.

Man you have made a lot of progress. Is there a thread with pictures of the build?

It started life as a 285-A Deluxe Police Patrol in Denver.

The back half is 33-34. That's a really big hole behind the tin. There was nothing there when I found the sides, but my guess is the hole was for a heater like you see on the AA Ambulances.

It's calm and straight at 40 mph and the brakes are pretty good, empty. It has cast iron drums. I have the seat set up for a 6' 4" 230lb driver so there's enough room for me.

I've started chronology that I'll put up here in a couple days. I still need 3 hinges for the driver's side rear cargo door, in case anybody has extras.

That's the truck I really wanted when I came upon my dump truck instead, looking good so far . Can't wait to see it completed

What do the rear door hinges look like? I sold some 79-b front doors and parts At Bert's in Denver a few years ago, They would be a likely source for. parts.
