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.

so we had to decide if we wanted to try and save the old truck rear end (it had no gears in it or any kind of brakes either)...one of the guys where I work says..."I gotta guy who has a barn full of 9" Fords"...I was on him for 6 weeks before we could finally make a date and go get one...found an early Ford Bronco one that would fit the bill...



($300.00 later)

I thought it was gonna drop in place...not even close...



had extra holes in the axle tube...




we figured it out...did the old "build a bead bridge"...



we also had to get rid of the "Hodge Podge" rear suspension too...good ole Pete and Jakes to the rescue...








much more to come...

So I learn every day how little I really know...had the new to Pete and Jakes shock mounts all setup or so I thought...then I got to scratching my chin again...
turn it around and then stuff starting looking correct...



then I was waiting for the parts to show up and I had a full tank or Argon gas...so...





before



During



and then all mounted back up on the frame rail it has been apart for since 1940...



this was the passenger side...drivers side was even worse...

more to come...

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.
