Default 41 Ford Truck Build

I picked this truck up a few months ago to replace my drag car build I had to sell a year and a half ago, due to mother nature issues. The wife stood by her promise to let me get another project. So I decided to build something we can both enjoy.

I have let it sit until now.. here is what it looked like when I brought it home.

Looks great! I hope leaving the fenders in place is part of the plan.

Im still trying to figure out what direction I want to go with this on. I know im going to build a new frame for it because the frame under it now is rusted in half just behind the cab. I love the short and low look. So im leaning toward a cut down bed and doing a Z'ed model A style frame to get the wheel base short.

My stupid ex-brother-in-law traded one of these for a bag of green stuff.

I had made him a much better offer a year earlier.

Very nice starting place. The plan sounds good.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
