  • Extended cab 4x4!

    I think this has real potential for an awesome custom- and at a more than reasonable price (provided the work already done is decent quality- a big 'if'):

      I haven't heard Nick Tosie's name in over 12,000 post's
      (wonder where he is today?)

      [QUOTE=Studedude;480420]I am 99.99% sure that this is the truck I tried to buy from Nick Tosie's father many years ago.

          Of all the crew "C" Cabs, and extended Cabs I have seen and seen posted here, this one is the very best looking design and truly DOES have a lot of potential. I am not a big fan of the Chevy chassis and power train and too tall ride height, but that Cab and Box are really beautiful!

          The Cab back wall or the whole Cab is 1955 and on, and not "R" Series like the front clip is.

            I agree Rich. For my taste I'd look into getting it a bit lower, and at least consider Stude power. Besides, it would need to get lower to fit in a quonset hut <wink>

            As we know the cabs are a bit small; not only is this one visually appealing, it solves the legroom problem. Would love to see someone here get it and follow the progress!

                Very interesting truck. Wish I could afford it. It does appear to be well done. No glass though and the doors are... well, not there. That extended cab is very attractive to this six-foot-plus driver as well. Still, there appears to be a LOT of bondo on this thing. Then again, with those tiny pictures, who can tell?

                  The $3,000 plus shipping home is just a small down payment. It will take another $10k to make that into a decent-looking, running, driving truck. Ask me how I know.

                      What's wrong with the height??? Just slap on some big mud tires and have yoself some fun in the mud. At least that's the way we do it in GA.

                        Guys I gotta say I really like this truck, It would take at least another 10K to finish but for what will end up being at least 25K
                        it would be well worth it. I personally would love to have it.
                        I could make one sweet welding rig out of that ! Keep the height and some retractable running boards, HUGE front bumper guard.

                        Good thing my car isnt finished yet and the truck is not close by.

                          Nick's truck is in Oregon

                          Nope, that truck is up in Oregon being completed. It's owned by a buddy of mine, the guy who it was first promised to before it was promised to others by Nick.

                            That is gonna be one sweet truck when its done, I have to say
                            I like this truck a LOT !

                            Glad someone is working on it rather than to think its just sitting.

                              I think the height is good.
                              It would make one cool tow rig. Me and a buddy salvage aircraft every now and then. This would be perfect!
