We saw this in Abilene, no clue about it except we think the Ford is a 1948 F-6 Series and the trailer is an old Airstream. We are guessing it was out in public because tonight is Cruise Night in Abilene, all of the old cars from around here are on the streets. If you are n Abilene area, stoop by the K Mart to see the car show.



Here is a pic off of Google of a 1948 Ford Cab Over Engine series F-6

That is an awesome platform to build a very unique custom truck. I know a guy who is building one on a F650 chassis with the 325hp Cummins B series with the 6spd 3000 Allison. It will have a roll back wrecker bed to carry his rat rod when it is done.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Probably a case of it. There is one old Airstream that we see all of the time in the back lot of an old body shop it has been parked there for at least 15 years that I can remember. When we saw this rig we both asked if that could be done to that Airstream.

That's Robert Fain's little toy that he just recently finished.

Awesome. Would like to see the other side too.

We have a newer Airstream. We absolutely love it and all of its little quirks. There's just something about all that classic charm and nostalgia.

No, but it's there fairly often.
