I thought I would throw my version of what an early Mustang should look like with flares into the ring. The car was very rusty so I put it on a 2006 Crown Vic chassis, which is true grassroots stuff, right? Obviously still a work in progress...

So, where is the build thread? Cause i want to read it.

It has been to long that the Box flare thread Languished.  I shall resurect it with these lower quality Renders of a rough model I have produced.  

Now if we all try real hard maybe we could get Robbie to build it?

Is that a Subaru Brat flatbed conversion? Robbie knows I'm down for cutting up weird trucklets. Send it down to Atlanta for my signature sheetmetal box flares a la Datsaniti.

It's like the 50% more box flare version of this!

Plus add the ramp bed for upto at least 800% more awesomeness.

and a little VW Caddy in this area:

Yeah the "Datsun Truck" model I grabbed from the library seems to be a unibody Datsun "Sunny".  Which explains the similarities to a VW Caddy.  But the Idea would be to use a 620 or similar Cab and build a Ramp backend.  There have been discussions of FWD with 2 trailer axles.  You could I suppose also make it with Dual rear wheels and a single axle.  But that's 66% the amount of Boxflare which is less Awesome.    The important part is that Robbie feels that he must build this contrivance to haul around the equally awesome F-Dat.  There are factorials and exponents involved in computing the awesomness of this Ramp truck IRL with F-Dat on the back.

Pre 1974.  I know that because it's in the Automobile Quarterly encyclopedia set my grandfather didn't buy (yeah...long story) that's copyright 1974.
