I picked up this 39 Chevy pickup from my buddies old man for $500. The plan is to have a sweet rat rod/tow rig to haul my Yota around. So far the plan involves an 855 cube Cummins small cam 300 with a 7 speed Eaton. Which I got from the same buddies brother. My idea is to pull a low slung gooseneck big enough to haul my two Toyota crawlers or a couple other rats. Not sure what rear end to use. Although the idea of an air brake 2-spd rear has been mentioned. If not that I've thought about something similar to the Rockwell rear end in my old mans F-650. Other than those few ideas this build is just coming together. We're still on the drawing board.
I'll be headed out to this weekend to give it a look over and to take measurements for the frame modifications needed to set the monolith of an engine in. So I'll have more info and pics early next week.
