It won't be a rod, just bone stock with some updates to make it a reliable daily driver. Great Grandpa bought it brand new in '48.

'48 Dodge 1 ton with the special looonnngg bed, straight six flathead and a "fluid drive" transmission. Dad learned to drive it when he was 8.

Maybe I should just leave the hood off an call him Mater?
I do like it, and it has a pretty good body for what it is. Get her running and you'll turn a lot of heads

Not entirely positive this counts as a "cool truck" but just picked up this 87 Subaru BRAT last week for a project.

Back seats were just a way around the chicken tax. Then they got somewhat popular for a few hours.

Good looking truck! I am a ford man myslef but i do like these old rigs. Plus its being pulled by a ford so that makes up for it.
A close friend of mine has a 1953 Ford F1 with a 10 foot bed that he has restored. Im working on a 71 f-250 right now. Its nice seeing people bring these trucks back from the dead.

I saw a conversion in one of the hot rod magazines a jillion years ago. They turned the rear seats around, removed the rear cabin glass, and put a high-roof topper on to make it a useable (more or less) 4-seat vehicle.

It is a WWII blimp hangar, now an air museum, in Tillamook, Oregon- a pretty cool place, and well worth a visit.

They have an annual cruise-in/fly-in.
