Yes but more Toy than most modded 40's by far! I'm still old school when Mini guys were the Dark Side and LC guys drove Land Crushers. Those were the days. Now it either buggys of Luxo mall wheelers.

My 62 is a "Luxo mall wheeler"? My back and butt would both disagree!

Lets see....

Parts from a mini truck:

Mini truck engine (from an IFS truck no less), mini truck supercharger, supercharger add ons from a mini truck tuner, Mini truck trans, mini truck rear axle bearing retainers, mini truck high steer.

Parts from a cruiser:

Tub, but not the hood, frame, some of the front axle, and front diff.

The rest is custom stuff because the Cruiser stuff wasn't strong enough. Hmmmmm.

I think Kevin is just too scared to come out of the closet.

The cowl and headlight buckets are still Cruiser and so is the windhield and frame, the glove box door, ignition switch, headlight switch, door hinges, Emergency brake handle and cable, and most importantly the title! Still more Toyota than Kimmels rig! Cruisers rule-minis drool! BTW. my high steer is not mini truck crap!
