It looks to be the old original style that tapers down judging by the pictures as opposed to the newer straight axle.

I'm almost positive those are the purple ones I sold on ebay. If so, they're the old style that taper.

I agree. I see the taper now under further review. Darn. The saga continues.

Close to completed. Still needs some finishing touches, and waiting on a few parts and decals. I will be changing out the slipper and spur, and need to properly mount the body.

I used a new vintage AE Titanium hingepin set through out the truck. All the ball studs are new gold Ti units. The drives are vintage MIP aluminum cvds. Vintage RPM transmission. I am using titanium hardware through out.

I'm at a loss for words. The attention to detail and that paint job! I raise my glass to this build

Thanks guys. A lot of time and money went into it. Can't wait to get the final items finished and call it complete.

Looks great Adam...if you aren't going to be running it :wink:

Those 3 piece wheels won't hold that soft new rubber very well unless you did something to reinforce them or glued them.

Yes, these old wheels are just for looks. I will likely be converting things over to accept modern wheels and rear hubs/drive. Still not sure what exactly to do with this truck now. It is too pretty to run hard, but too capable to be a shelf queen. Most of my trucks end up on the shelf though...

well you did give fair warning about it going to be too nice to run :P

Run it...run it hard and eventually you'll not want it for the shelf :wink:
