Cool Thanks for sharing. I have wanted a 1948 to 1953 Chevy Thriftmaster 5 window truck for a while now. hard to find a clean one for the right price.

2009 Prowler XTZ 1000 with a few modifications. Needs paint & powder coating.

I love the Chevy's. I know they are not very comfortable and the motors aren't great but I would like to have one.

Oh no ! LOL Where have you come up with the idea that Chevy motors are not great,,? the old Chevy sixes ran for ever ,, and the Chevy V-8's ,,espesially the small block 350 is stuck in many different makes of cars and trucks at the car shows I go to..
Now as for rear ends ,,the Ford 9 inch wins over any others for putting in hot rods ..
As for comfortable I like my Silverado comfortand really like it for my back for long rides ,,but my Toyotas I used to own were the worst ,in trucks anyway ..

your turn all in fun friend

Here ya go ,,very comfortable ,,maybe ? ..its Chevy Powered I think

That's a funny looking rig there.

I didn't mean that the Chevy motor is no good it's just that if you want to drive these things a 65 mph on a road trip that aint going to happen unless you make some changes and updates to the motor, trans, chassis etc..

Oh I got ya ,,You are so right and thats why I never got into model T's and A 's ..you'd get runned over on a feeway with one of them.. I have this 71 and it does okay at 65 on the freeway ,,but in agreement with you on the older trucks ,,the seats set up to straight for my old back.
