Default '29 Chevy RPU from junk

Got this cowl a couple years ago. Picked up 5 doors along the way. The two best ones are shown. Hard to get good Chevy stuff. Too much wood. Started on it today by cleaning all the unneeded stuff off the cowl, gutting the doors and hanging them on the cowl. Looks like the doors need some straightening and some new metal. That's for tomorrow.

The slant 6 and overdrive 4 speed out of my dragster will be the driveline for this project.

I heard a Mopar motor wouldn't fit in a Chevrolet, but if anybody can do it, you can....

Just goes to show if you have a vision and a goal, it doesn't take much to get started.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

One Door Done. No, that's not a Chinese name. Couldn't get to the other one cuz I ran errands. Made nine stops today. A little visiting here. A little visiting there... Tomorrow I'm going up north to pick up something old and rusty. It'll be my last project, honest.

Door looks great, amazed at how fast you did it. How did you finish the bottom edge?

I hope that Leaning Tower of Power doesn't put too much weight on the right side.
