Default 1946 chevy terrain master build

Well since I don't have much happening with the v6 jimmy fleet other than a brownie install And the other rigs are needing mucho mucho. I am doing a quick little thing. Most of the bits are ready To go and i hope it takes a month or two at the most. I will keep it short tonight but basically i am building a 46 chevy version of a vintage power wagon. This two ton will get shorter and taller and sit on some 3/4 ton gear. It will keep the frame and springs and steering but have some things swapped out. Super easy really. So now its inside next to its roomate. This cool old buick.

ooh....liking both of these very much. I would have to restore the Buick all original I think...the old convertibles are so cool no matter what you do, but original would be awesome if you could manage the difficulty of finding the correct fabric for the seats, etc.

The buick will be original. But it will be a very long term project. It's all there and has very little rust. The interiors on those post war gm cars have good support so it's about money and time. Lots of time. Fair bit of moolah. However the wife looked like this

The 46 will be getting the watson 42 I have posted pics of in the trans section. A 205 t case a d60 out of a 72 gmc and a 10 bolt from a 90 burb. It's keeping the 235 and the 420 trans. It's also staying 6 volt. I will be cutting 16 inches out of the frame in the middle and make a 9 foot dump bed for it. I did one like this a long time back and have been joneson to do one again. Plus I have an older 1-1/2 ton and really don't want another.

So I spent a couple of hours on the front axle. The pre 55 first series are tough to make a 4x4 out of but not so tough that it can't be done on the stock frame and suspension. chopped that 10 bolt down so it will bolt in. Next i will make s few steering bits and drop off the inner axle to be shortened.

Let's talk a little about what I am doing here. First the spring center width on these trucks is 27 inches and the frame tapers in at the front. The front spring hangers are castings that are rivited in and double as the bumper mount. So instead of trying modify the frame with out board mounted hangers and a heavily modified scout or wagoner axle I just cut down a full size GM axle 5 inches. This gives me an easy solution that bolts in with about 6 hours work.

Is it cut and the end welded back on or cut off both ends?

I only cut down the long side. I cut it down 5 inches. The spring centers are basically 5 inches different. I shifted the pumpkin over and used the cast mount and put a new mount 27 inches on center from the cast mount. Here are this mornings results.
