Does anyone have pics of one of these. I am looking to design a hinge system to lift the front fiberglass front end off of the truck, but make it so if I am stranded alone I can just lift it up like some of the trophy trucks.

Check out the retro bronco.

There is also a Ford Ranger Preunner built by H&M with that setup. I think has something to do with Ashcraft Racing.

And a 4 door Nissan Frontier Dirt Alliance Prerunner now affiliated with Kirby Offroad

All 3 trucks feature FiberwerX Products

I was wondering about this too. Does anyone have some better pics of the hinge area and how it is fabricated?

Looks like a 63-66 F-500 to 700 crew cab.

Damn - I wanted to say 50'd at 1st but after looknig at the fenders over and over - they look like the "heavy duty" (F-500+ trucks) stuff from the 60's. I should listened to my gut when looking at the hood and front of the cab.

Anyways - you do know there are a couple of those trucks out there right? Not many at all - but they were custom made for rail road companies, etc.
