    ‘75 Loadstar 1700 with 345 2bbl, 5sp with 2sp rearend. Just discovered the Daybrook build plate on the scissor lift. Best guess is late 40’s/early 50’s lift?? Still can’t get-over the size of the twin rams on this lift. Plan was to cut the front rollers to make it dump-only… can’t seem to bring myself to do it…wish I could make it do both scissor or dump.
