Talking 1946 Chevy Prius Truck

I'm new here. I discovered you all when I was starting my latest project. December of 2016 I brought home and 2002 Toyota Prius. I started the dismantling process. My plan was to put my 46 Chevy truck cab on top of the Prius platform. Today I was able to drive it for the first time. Everything came together like it was meant to be. Hope to show pictures of the process soon.

Admin update: pictures added. See more below.

Welcome, Jcnhjw.

Feel free to make a few extra (meaningless) posts to get past the 5-post restriction.

Looking forward to learning more about your project!

PS: if you'd like to change your username to something other than your email address, send me a private message.

Here are the pictures from his album. There are many notes in his album worth looking at that explain the pictures.

My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
