Details of the Restoration Project
The truck was found in a barn in Jonesburg MO. It had been last licensed in 1987. Although it had been used primarily to haul stuff on a farm, it had also been used on the highways by the Meier boys to go to school, etc. I purchased it in 2000 and hauled it to its new home in Wentzville, MO.
The ultimate plan is to create a stock looking 1941 truck, although lowered about 8". It will have all new suspension, disc power brakes, air conditioning, and all modern electricals. The prime mover will be a 500 HP 426 cid crate Chrysler HEMI with a beefed torqueflite transmission and 1970 Cuda rear axle.
