Brilliant Lang, a bonanza of pictures including the GMC that is really a Diamond T (with a 351 in it no doubt?). ;) Also, the Dodge with the metal finish looks so much like B for that I don't know whether I even need consider painting mine!? :unsure:

Actually that Diamond T is a Ford F-350. He has spent a fortune (Crocodile skin tailored seats). The workmanship is as good as anything I have seen. It is registered as a Ford F-350 Model T! but on full rego.

Thanks for the extra information Lang. Hmmm, change cab and re-register . . . all regulations pertinent to the F350 addressed hopefully? :unsure: :huh:

More power to the owner, and perhaps we could all be more open with our acceptance of what others are doing as there is a lot to learn looking at everything.
NB I'm not being negative mammoth, please don't take offence - it is not intended.

I think you will find putting an old cab on a modern vehicle is pretty easy so long as you keep all the original stuff such as steering column and all running gear. It must be pre-airbag (easier with commercial vehicles) as the new vehicle must meet the specs of the original which is impossible with airbags,

This is what the Allora truck has done - all original F-350 with new tinwork with seats and belts separately blue plated.
