1933 Ford Pickup vs. 1979 Dodge Express - Generation Gap: Trucks

Matt and Davin have very different ideas as to what makes a good pickup. For this episode, Matt chose a 1979 Dodge Lil' Red Express - big Mopar V-8, extreme styling and very limited production. Davin, on the other hand, went with a 1933 Ford Pickup. Boasting the iconic Flathead V-8, this vehicle was born out of necessity and eventually evolved into Ford's incredibly popular F-Series pickups

Low-Pro Harbor WorkMaster On E350 Cutaway Packs It In

Joseph shows off a unit just built at Harbor Truck Bodies. This one is a Low-Pro Harbor WorkMaster on a single rear wheel E350 Cutaway Chassis. The Cutaway chassis has a number of advantages. First, it is lower to the ground because of the way the frame is designed. Second, this one has a very similar wheelbase to that of an 8' pickup truck, and yet this has a 10' body. This means that you can have about the same footprint, but carry much more cargo.

With the Low-Pro body, this allows entrance to almost anywhere that a regular cargo van can go, and yet, again, this has a lot of storage for parts, tools, and other equipment.

Vendor Spotlight: West Coast Truck Equipment

Since 2002, West Coast Truck Equipment has dedicated itself to delivering top-quality products at competitive prices. We are conveniently located right off Highway 80 in West Sacramento, CA. Our warehouse is about 10,000 square feet with a large yard for storage of truck bodies.

It is important that we meet the needs of our customers; however, it is our goal to exceed our customer's expectations for service, quality and value. At West Coast Truck Equipment, we have a "great body" for your business!

Though we are a smaller company, we have a passion for sitting down with our customers and planning out the exact truck they need, from the overall body down to every toolbox and accessory. We like to customize the truck for the customer's needs to make sure each customer gets everything they need and the end result is a product that will serve them extremely well.

We do not claim to be a manufacturer...we are a truck equipment distributor, although we do a good deal of custom modifications to existing products. This save you money and time. We can buy competitively and get the product to our customer at a reasonable price.

When a customer asks us, "when is it going to be done?," we are realistic and honest. Usually when we give a delivery date, we deliver on time so there will be no delays on the jobsite. Every truck is different, and our motto is:

"A good quality product at a planned price with an on time delivery!"
