This truck came from a farm in South East Montana, where I first saw it in a picture over four years ago. I wrote about this incredible story on my Blog as a feature of our ongoing series, Friday’s Fresh Farm Find.

We didn’t have the truck here very long when it was bought by a customer in Ohio. He wanted a winter project and this was the perfect truck for him. It arrived at his shop in late January, and he’s made great progress since. The first picture below was taken the afternoon it arrived in Ohio. The second picture is about a month later. It’s already looking Awesome.
I’m told that the body is going on a 1995 Ford F800. This is powered by the original 5.9 Cummins, and we all know the possibilities are endless there. Both fenders have to move out 11″ to cover those big meats in the front. This is going to be the next cool ride for sure. We can’t wait for updates and better yet, see this one on the road soon.
We just sold some parts that are going on this 1954 Chevy. We love to provide those original pieces that are needed to get your project up and running. We have a lot of parts and even a lot of whole trucks in the ’47-’54 series, so if you need something, don’t hesitate to call.
We can’t wait to see this one hit the road.
First Customer Project December 2018
This summer I had one of my friends from Montana dropped off this nice little 1950 Dodge Pickup. It was pretty straight, and all the tires were holding air, but it was full of junk and smelled awful. We cleaned it up, titled it and quickly put her up for sale. It wasn’t here very long before a guy named Mike from Massachusetts sent me a deposit to hold it until he could make the drive out to pick her up. Mike had bought and already restored another truck from here four years ago, so he knew we’d have some good merchandise to work with.
It wasn’t long before he picked it up, and he told me he planned to begin work immediately. It’s only been a little over a month since he took her home, and you can see from the pictures that Mike isn’t wasting any time. This truck was in really good shape, and even though that helps, there is still a lot of work that goes into rebuilding one of these.
You can see the pictures he sent me. It looks like everything is apart, and he said it’s been sent to the media blaster. Mike can be proud that his little 1950 Dodge pickup will forever be the official “First Customer Project” that originated here at Angry Auto Group.
Check back often, as we’ll keep you update as things progress.
