Default 54 Dodge Truck

Hey all, thought I'd share some photos of the truck I just finished over the weekend. I like the rare and unique trucks, so I restored this 1954 Dodge that I picked up in Montana. Very challenging to find parts. I even installed 4-wheel disc brakes, which are nice!!! Came out to be a pretty nice driver quality ride. Now on to my next project: 65 GMC Suburban 4x4!!!

Seriously, it looks awesome - can't wait to see your build thread for the 65 GMC Suburban - I bought a 66 GMC Suburban a month or two back

I like that silver too. Never see that color on the older trucks but it turned out great. I'd drive it! Thanks for sharing.
