Truck
Is tha Al Colton's truck?  It had larger rear tires when I first saw it in that dark blue & silver blue combo.
Yup. chopped, here it is, in all its fat tired seventies glory. How the hell anyone thought putting those wire basket wheels on it was a good idea escapes me. I have liked this truck for so long, I was seriously thinking about building one, until I found my T Tudor body. What a great looking truck.

no idea. You could try asking needs louvers on the HAMB, I think he knows Al. I might have an email for needs louvers, I'll check. I really did think about building one, I was committed to some sort of full fendered '26/'27 T for my 270hp 283. I had lined up the back panel of a pick up cab, but in the end I decided to use a Tudor body for the extra room. This is the only closed cab '26/'27 T pick up phantom I can recall anyone building, its a GREAT idea, and very simple to do.

Dick Rodwell knew Al well, he said the truck was sold long time ago, he has not seen it since.  Unfortunately,  Dick said Al passed away a couple of years ago.

Sorry to hear that about Al; it certainly is a cool truck !  It's a 'phantom' but one that easily could have been built by Ford.

Pics from the '73 Tulsa Nats taken by yours truly.   I remember the candy apple red roadster well; tried to chase it down for a decent pic all day.  This is the closest I ever got to it.
