1946 Hudson truck stretch cab
This is a stretch cab truck I did. The customer wanted a bigger cab but not longer doors. At the time, the Chevy trucks with the extra little door was popular. This truck design was influenced by those trucks and their overall look. My customer Mr. David had thought out the project very well. He wanted to use a four door sedan. Cut the car in half through the back doors. Then weld the truck cab back on the car. The total length of the stretch would be 15". The little doors would open and close independent of the front doors being open or not. We started with a truck and a four door sedan. Sent both bodies to the sand blaster so we could see what we have to work with. Hmm? I see the mail man jeep in the background that later became a 1924 Essex. ....but that's a story for another day.
