Well that's.....different! Sounds like it's going to be a heck of a go kart, have you got the "pig nose" grill? Jim Green has an REO double cab...might be a Diamond T, that's been sitting on a pallet forever.
Curious to see how the Ford fenders work out.
Nice parts list, have fun with it!

It is really cool. Different to build a REO Speedwagon truck. Very different to make it as an RSRT designed Street Warrior chassis. I can't wait to see it come along.
