The 51

**WE DO NOT DO THIS KIND OF THING PROFESSIONALLY PLEASE DON'T ASK**


Last year, our middle brother Mike decided to push a 51 Ford truck out of the barn where it had been sitting for the past 20 years.




It went all the way down to the frame.




The engine and diff were rebuilt. Steve Smith redid the transmission.



The interior was Dyno Matted



Wiring everything up



Assembly



One year to the day it took its maiden test drive.




Soon it's heading over to Nathan Stewart to get the leather work done on the interior.

Mike, Dad, Jason and Alex did an insane amount of work in a very short period of time. I'm crazy proud that they let me hang out with them. I wasn't much help. You see, even though we own a repair shop, this project took place at the farm....in the wood shop. So, it was kind of in my way. Here's a pic they took of me "helping" by making pens and a set of nunchaks.


***AGAIN!!!! WE HAVE NO INTEREST IN WORKING ON STREET RODS OTHER THAN THE ONE OUR BROTHER MAKES US WORK ON***

This is awesome. I'm so glad your dad helped with this. It's nothing more precious than kind people like your dad making memories. Your family has always been so kind and so generous. You all do a great job. when I think back to how your dad, mom owned the shop and did the work and paved the way for there family. I hope you all are doing well. You all are and have been such a blessing to others. Thank you Ruark and Sons family and friends for going always going the putting in hard work and the extra miles.
