I’m one of the builders of the gold truck that you like, it belonged to my buddy Cody (67’ Utah Rat) he has sold it and it now resides over seas (I think it’s in Saudi Arabia)
The back window was fabricated out of the two side windows from my truck build and the back cab overhang was built by round bar that I heated with a torch and bent until we had the radius that we were looking for.

I hope this helps...

Thanks for the info! I was considering tubing or hammer forming (maybe a wire crimp) back there. Any other info you can share? How were the bed sides and rear cab to do? Lots of flat metal back there.

I made a video starting some work on this project. Editing takes me a long time.

I like the brown 34 and the black one. On the other hand I like hot rods with wide tires and A arm suspension in front. Have you considered any of those options?
