Wasp n black widows

I do not think these drums have been off in a very long time. A home to wasp and black widows for sometime in the field. 13x2.5 shoes #60 #417485 National seals #WC9344 cylinders (had to replace due to frozen solid pistons. Drums measure out 13.025 both sides so good there. Bearing are great.

Wheels fit nice , just checking them on hub to see which are the straightest to use on front. All decent considering how old they are.

Brakes and tires

We have front and rear brakes now and the tire and wheel set-up are in place. I like it so much better and it turns so easy now.

I truly love the Patina on this truck. The new tires and wheels just make the old truck smile.

It is a 1957 392 Hemi, it was in there when I got the truck and I brought it back to life with some minor work. I believe it has been in there for a long time and it is all chrome under that dirt and grime. Must have looked really nice back when they put it in. I am not much into the chrome being polished up I kind of like it like it is.
Thanks for asking

It seems part shiny and part patina is the newest fad. Some of the antique tractor set are doing it. I believe I'd shine that motor up.

The sound it makes when you start it has to make you giggle every time it starts...
