The 300 is a core for an 84 bronco project
The stepside is off my 77 f100.
I have tools. That's half the garage I haven't cleaned that half yet.

I had an 84 bronco with the 300 and 4 speed.
Gave it to a cousin after owning it for a while.
He drove it till it had so much rust.. Was Fred Flistoning it, and the only thing seriously holding the body to the chassis was the wires and steering column..
I'm a Chevy guy, But it was a great rig. He went like 3 years without changing the oil even...
Tough truck..you betcha.

When you get your shop cleaned, you can help me with mine ahahaha
Pleaser....

Eager to see more of the Rod my friend. Hoping ya update soon.
Popcorn ..popcorn..and a beer...hehehehe.

To the update that barely updates.
Finally welded on one fender, made some motor mounts happen, and started on some wiring

Little progress is still good, do you plan on using a servo on the two speed of the drill gearbox? For some reason I can see this think pulling heavy stuff with all four rear wheels spinning and throwing dirt everywhere

Ok. So I snuck in a little time today and made some fuel tanks.

1" copper pipe, couple of caps, and a small oiler. I soldered on the caps, and since I had the torch out already gave the rest of the pipe a little heat color

But then I needed cool straps.

Oh. That works out.

Yup

I'm loving it

Pretty good from the back too.
And now for a second one.


And I finally figured out how to do the second side. I cut the bottom inch off the side and welded it on, then welded the fender to it and picked up some piano hinge which will connect the rest of the side to the roof. The tank will be attached to the side and that will still give me access to the electrical guts.


That's it for now.

Ok. So far this morning:
I got my side door welded up.





Then I thought having one chrome Hong was goofy.
So I added a second so they're roof rails. May add something like a roof rack later? Dunno

ok.. I will be honest here...

initially, liked the T-bucket thought, but not the dual rear axles so much...

But this? This is AWESOME! Very creative and definitely unique!

Look forward to seeing how the rest turns out.

I love this janky thing. Also, I love both of the janky trucks. I've been wanting a Rat Fink shifter in a car.

It's just metal and time.
We had thought of making a hooptie mini truck club.
