    I saw the truck in person, this morning at the antique truck show, at Long Branch Park, in Liverpool, NY. The pictures made me believe the truck is black, but it is actually a metallic gun metal gray. A very nice looking vehicle, also met Sid's brother Pete, who said the engine upgrade to a Cummins 8.3L, is happening very soon.

    Nice work Sid. What a beautiful truck. Very well proportioned, and it just looks "right". Talented family you've got there.

    Yes,he spent much time agonizing over those proportions to get it right. That's why we were modifying the axle just to move the tires in 1.5 inches on each side!

    Ahh! Now I get it!
    Yes, It was a big part. We actually used my engine hoist to get it up on the table and set up. Once it was clamped, we released the hoist, but kept it in place just in case.
