Been a while for updates.
Chassis is ready to have the cab mounted and trial fit everything.
I had a couple renderings done to get an idea of wheels, colors and grill.
Here is what I have so far:

I like that color...real vintage'y so to speak. That was an original color back in the day if I'm correct, but with white bumpers.

Yep, the turquoise is the original color. I thought I would keep something original.

Love the color choice and overall look of the truck. I prefer the red calipers as it helps distinguish the truck even further similar to how the new, more performance oriented models of a car use colored calipers. The only thing I would change is the black rims. To me, black hides too much of the details of the rims. You can see what I mean just looking at the rendering. Maybe a different color that's still a dark color would help in this area. It's your truck though and it's going to be badass regardless. Good luck moving forward.

I agree about the wheels. I was thinking powdercoat a dark burnt bronze.
Calipers are on the chassis now. They are the C6 Z06 Calipers. The first pic just didn't get them added by accident. Good call!

The 55-56 Plymouth grill looks pretty good on the truck, who’d a thunk it?

I was shocked to see that the Plymouth grill fit the lines in the front too.
