1934 extended cab 4x4


Recommended Posts

Been working on it a while but kept putting updates in the introduction section. Here goes: always wanted a truck, Pontiac quit making them in 29 (30 model year) so decided to build my own. It is a 1934 sitting on a stretched 2004 S10 4x4 chassis with a 2004 Z71 5.3/4L60 drive train. Started with a 4 door sedan, ending up with an extended cab.

It does run! I got to drive it out of the barn on Monday. I fixed a throttle problem on Tuesday so am golden now. The wiring you see on the floor in the next to last pic is for the heated leather seats. I still have to make the harness nice and clamp it into place.

Justa the motovation ya need for the project.  Nice Job!

JUSTA6, Everything is in the same location as the original would have been, as long as I didn't screw up! These were originally a straight 8, so plenty of room. I've been playing around with other stuff as I plan on the doing the hood and sides last. That way I can drive it sooner!

Rear fender is just tacked together and bolted on but it really makes it look like a truck and gives me some much needed ambition.

Bigfoot - what's your inspiration for going for the Pontiac pickup theme?

It looks great by the way. Obviously people are going to scratch their heads and say "when did Pontiac make a pickup?", which I'm sure is part of your master plan.

Guess it Justa looks like you've stretched the engine compartment, but a straight 8 is quite the beast.  Plenty of room for your powerplant vision.  Looks like it all tucked in nicely.

Always been a Pontiac fan. Can't afford the very rare Pontiac truck so decided to build my own. Being a large individual, I decided to go extended cab, and I just thought making it 4x4 would be different than just throwing the body on a s10 frame, like everybody else.

It's very tight. the driver fender has to be notched a bit for the power steering pump and they miss the fan by about 1.5 inches per side.
