The new race truck will surely be controversial.  I will show the progress on the roll cage, chassis and the Y-Block engine. 

The 57 Ford pickup is now officially retired, due to budget restraints it will be a donor for some race and safety parts.  I hope to put it back on the street in the future.

The roll cage main hoop is the first fabrication project.

Hopefully everyone will look past certain characteristics, and just enjoy another kick-ass truck Charlie...and, it looks as if we are going to have to start a thread on the Unibody here, too BigGrin

Thanks Todd and Ted, I will continue to post as long as there is an interest. 

I like to start with a clean frame.

Charlie,

Sound like good clean fun to me.  I have no doubt you will reach your goal.  Thanks for sharing.

I too have always wanted to put a Ford in a scrub... A nice Ford blue big block in one of their flagship cars (camaro or a vette) and enter it in all the car shows.  My way of getting back for all the classic Fords defaced with a scrub engine!

You sure make quick work of a cleaned frame Charlie...

I've been considering sneaking a gantry lift into my garage for pulling bodies, but I think Corinne might not see the practicality.Crazy

I had a chance to stop by Charlies last weekend. They invited me to stay over New Years Eve for dinner and a Movie. I had a fantastic time, the hospitality and the dinner was outstanding.

The new Truck is going to raise some eyebrows at the Lakes and the Salt Flats. Very professional, and slick. Nothing , and I mean absolutely nothing, in the world is going to be more fun than the look of horror on the faces of the Generals Brainwashed minions when they see the Y-Block FORD in that truck. w00t If you get a chance to take a camera when he opens the hood, aim it at the Scrub lovers when they first see it. The photos will be priceless. For years we've had to endure Scrub powered Fords, charlies gonna turn the tables on them. It'll be GREAT!! With one of Tim's engines in it it's going to fly.
