You , my friend are a true artist !
I still cant believe you did all this from photos ,
I've been through every nut and bolt on mid 60's Power Wagons and I can verify that you didn't miss any details !
Just in case you put T-case levers , a 67 should have an NP201 transfer case
that has twin sticks .

Great job !

p.s. Ill take a couple if you ever make a mold

Thanks again fellas.

Well, i haven't worked on this guy too much in the last week, just looked at him and waited for all the snow to go away. I did bring him with me to one of my local hobby shops last weekend to show the guys. They didn't really know what my builds were like as im usually just quietly gathering parts when i'm in there. They aren't on this forum for some reason either, but they were pretty into it. Kinda freaks people out seeing a wood body of this sort it seems.

I did get some bolts for my rims. I don't like the look of the big nuts usually on these rims, so i went for just some flat head hex bolts and filed them one by one into a nut shape. Lots of work but i'm liking it. I made some wheel hubs too but i wasn't too into the look so left them off for these pics. I'll try again i think.



Also got most of the underneath and suspention painted up. It looked weird all black and shiny aluminum. Not going for a full rusty treatment, i'm pretending its around 1970 at this point.





I painted the backs of the side mirrors white to match the rims. Looks pretty good but i think i'll leave the grill silver. Man, i can't wait to get this thing out on the trails. I've had all my trucks apart and fixed everything i could in the last few weeks, even started planning out another build in this size for someone to ride with. How much longer till spring?


Here's a few new outdoor pics.

Would really like a outdoor video, but maybe hard with all the snow

Thanks again fellas.

It was kinda warm here for a few days this week, and some of the mounds of snow actually melted. Had a few dry spots in the yard so i took advantage of them and brought the Fargo out for some nice pics and a bit of video. This was his first time driving around outside, quite exciting. Everything seems to be working good, i can't wait till my trails dry out.

I've still got a few things i wanna do to this guy yet, wanna build a cool exhaust system underneath and try to hook up some shocks i think. Doesn't really need them but they would look cool. Also want to make some kinda brake drum looking thing that will block the view of the inside of the rim.

Oh well, enjoy the first ride.


And here's some nice new pics.
