these old trucks are really great looking but if you were ahot rodder the transmissions were a little weak..i had a 1953 with a 261 chevy truck engine in it...i tore 5 transmissions out of that thing in 5 weekends the transmo would last about 5 minutes with a good burnout shift from low to secound and you could count the tranny goodbye...charlie

I'm sorry, but you guys got it all wrong. Hudson had it in spades when it came to a great looking pickup truck.

One of my high-school friends used to pick me up some mornings in his channeled '34 Ford pickup with a Olds 394 cid with six 97's and a LaSalle transmission. (Why am I even still here?) Rainy days were the worst..... there was no cover plate in the floor over the transmission and when he hit a puddle water would splash onto the headers and the cab would fill up with steam

Today it would be called a "rat rod"
