1961 V8 Single Cab Street Rod
 
I purchased the rotten cab and bed gates and added the rest. It uses a 400 Hp GM crate engine with a custom made frame and street rod suspension.

Adapted front shocks to the Speedway Front End
 
I used these small Monroe golf cart shocks. They were a perfect fit. The piece of tubing will be removed.

I decided to try and use the factory headlights and buckets on the single cab. I installed one today. It moves with the steering.

Nice!

Ben Modified 12-08-2015 00:40

I went ahead and mounted the other headlight, although I may not keep them. Also added the other shock tower bracing. Still need to finish the welding and smooth.







Trimmed off the bottom of the door and started making a template for a rocker panel.
