Had Nieto Photography shoot some quality pics of the 57 Chevy. Extremely happy with how the photos, and truck, turned out.
And in case of curiosity, truck is powered by a low mile tbi 4.3/ od automatic. Has limited slip rear end that I installed 4.56 gears in to accommodate the 35" general tires. Has working climate control, with a brand new a.c. compressor.

55 ford cab, customer dropped off a few weeks ago, hoping to bring it back from it's gloomy fate. After much deliberation, the plan is to rechop, section, and reskin the roof with a peak to match the hood, which will also be sectioned to match the body. Plenty of work, but should be pretty sweet.
