I'm working on putting this '47 Diamond T 509 body on a '79 Dodge Power Wagon chassis. Here is a few pics. The last one is how we found it in the bone yard, they were getting ready to send it to the crusher.

It's almost done. Getting ready to build the body mounts, then it's just a matter of hooking everything up. That's not primer, it's the farm field rust it came with from Spearfish, S.D. it's going to stay like that, I love the rusty look! There is no rot at all on the body.

onelow1ton.. nice square. I am a fan of the square bodies as well (82 C10 and 87 GMC R15).

To the original poster... here is my Dad's old 65 Chevy K10.. not "pretty" but he used it weekly to pull 2.5tons of water... still had to start off in 2nd gear. That thing could pull a house down.

I enjoy going to the local car nights and there seems to be one every night. While I appreciate all of the custom work people have put into their cars, I love the older stock trucks. Pre 1960.

I had a 54 chevy. It was so worn out I had to hang an old pair of tenner shoes from the shifter to keep it from jumping out of 3rd gear. I had a pair of wires I would short out to turn the brake lights on. The front fenders would look like they were flapping like wings at 40 MPH. It had a utility body on it, it was so rusted out when you placed something in the top compartment it would fall to the ground. Man I would like to have that truck back. Sold for $75 in 1969.

I'll post some pictures tomorrow of my fathers 79 f-100 stepside and pictures of my 86 C3500 that just went bye bye...... Someone ran a light and tore it to pieces.
