DONE!! (28 CC Platform Truck)

Post by lowtide » September 28th, 2011, 7:44 am

A little over 2 years and it's on the road and runs great. I picked the truck up for the cab and was going to parts the rest out. I was amazed when it arrived there was no rust, it had mouse damage under the seat and a few dents. The truck had a frame off restoration, only the engine and paint were farmed out. Everthing that needed rebuilding was done. The truck was painted Gunmetal blue I have had more comments on the color (it appears to have been the original color) it is perfect. Very few things aren't original to the truck, even the speedometer only needed a little oil. It is very close to the way it left the factory, except I found a high speed rear end almost new. Two pictures attached I will send more if requested. Thanks for the help, Charlie, (lowtide)

Very nice, the side rail's kinda look like what Idid. A bit much for original's. I like the wires,Mine were kinda shaky so I went with the disk type.!!!
