This certainly isn't a Panel Truck any more. the hood tilts all the way to show off the new motor. The seats had to be moved forward to fit in the cab. This actually took two 56 Fords to make.

 

 

 

 



This one has been shortened between the doors and rear fender as well as the back of the truck. If you look you can see the back fender is shorter where the back of the truck was shortened.

 

 

 

 



My 56 Tandem is done. I like the looks of this one. It was actually harder to do than I thought it would be because the truck narrows at the back. That means you have a low spot in the center you have to fill in.

 

 

 

 



A friend sent this to me as a Monster Truck. It was hot glued and had the stock paint job. I was going to paint it and send it back but I messed up the paint. While sanding it down it just kind of transformed into this lowrider. Note the windshield wipers, hood ridge, bottoms of the fenders, door handles and front bumper are shaved .The roll pan was cleaned up also.

 

 



Of all the 56s I have done so far I like this one the least. I just got tired of dinking with it and called it done. There are a few imperfections that really should have been cleaned up but here it is.

 

 



Someone suggested filling in the gap where the hood tilts. After I did that I realized I would have to make a ridge down the hood for it to look right. JB Weld to the rescue.

 

 



This one was a request. I like the gold wheels with this color. The air cleaner is painted to match the truck also.
