The following pictures show the current status of the build.
Truck’s History: This truck was purchased by my grandpa in the late 50's or early 60's. He used it for hauling his race car to the track. He chopped it in 1962 and painted it candy red. The top was chopped such that all the windows were the same height and at the same elevation. The rear of the cab was canted fwd and the door canted in so the roof was unmodified. He gave the truck to my dad when he turned 15. My dad painted it silver with black scallops and installed stacks and quad canted headlights. Sometime in the early 80's my dad quit driving it for its final ground up rebuild. Not much progress was made since he had a family to raise. About 10 yrs ago he reached a time in his life that he could start working of the truck. Him and I fabricated a new bed box with tonneau cover, installed a 1990 Mustang MAF EFI motor, plumbed the fuel and braking systems and did a bolt up Volare installation. Then at age 54 my dad passed away in his sleep unexpectedly from a blood clot in his lungs. I brought the truck to my house about 10 months ago to finish for him. I frenched in caddy tail-lights in the rear fenders, pie cut the hood 1.5", straightened the side window channel for a one-piece glass, frenched in a Harley Davidson gas cap, installed the 8.8 mustang rear end with Lincoln discs and triangulated 4 link, C-channeled the frame, filled and modified the dash for gauges, and nearly completed all of the body work (except for the front fenders and valance).
Soon I will be ordering a Mustang II IFS with bags to go in place of the Volare and installing bags on the rear. I will be fabbing up quad canted headlights with a custom grille and valance. I also plan to move the front axle centerline fwd about 4.5".
