Denny Driver is another reader who was inspired by one of our project trucks and decided to write in and show us his. He’s starting with a five-star cab ’52 Ford F-1 just like ours but plans on installing a 454ci big block Chevy backed by a 700-R4 and a 9-inch Ford rear. A Heidts front end will be installed as well to upgrade the stock straight-axle/drum brake setup to an independent/disc configuration.
Denny and I have been corresponding back and forth while he;s in the preliminary stages of sourcing parts for his truck, so we should have updates on his project from time to time. Looks like he's off to a good start judging by the sheetmetal in these pics! CCT
Editor’s Note: Getting your truck into Readers’ Trucks is a snap, of the camera, that is. All it takes are a few good-quality photos of your ride that are in focus and well lit. High-resolution digital photos can be sent in via email to: email@example.com. Traditional prints are also acceptable and should be sent to: CCT, c/o Readers’ Trucks, 1733 Alton Parkway, Suite 100, Irvine, CA 92606. It is important that you include a detailed description of the modifications you have made to your truck, including any interesting stories behind it. Due to the volume of mail we receive, we regret that we cannot return photographs.
