I like the fact that you don't mind working it too
I've hauled engines, sheet metal and all kinds of stuff with my 37 like many others on here have done theirs.

After 1 1/2 months in Arizona, it's time to bring the Herc back home before it snows... Going to make a few changes for better cruising next summer, poly suspension bushings to replace the heims - they are positive but transmit too much road noise - 2.75 rear gear to make the granny low 1st gear usable and lower RPMs on the highway - and most likely upgrading to a 390 with the Thumper cam I have. The old 360 gets it around but having sat in a field for 20 yrs before I revived it has given it a thirst for oil...
Pics from Arizona and on the road thru Washington, finally back home in B.C. just in time, it snowed last night!

Following along with your builds and travels is like a mini series. So much fun.

I look at Herc and can't believe it was flat sheet metal just a few short months ago.

How long is the box?

Thanks Bob, it's been a lot of fun putting around in Arizona with it, put on about 2500 miles just driving around Yuma. The box is 64" long, don't ask me why, it just ended up that way...

Thanks! The Hennway pickup I built 17 yrs ago, the Hercules is kind of its hillbilly brother
The T bucket golf cart I built in 2017 or so, the other cart is JoAnn's lifted Club Car.
