    What do you think? This was a total frame off restoration of a 1939 Ford PU Dad drug home back in 1968.

    It has sat in a number of fields over the years as well as spending some time in the barn. He finally had an ace restorer in Topeka Kansas go through it over the past year and a half.

    I think it turned out better than expected.

    Barry,

    Yes, the original flathead V-8. Only exceptions made were for the 12v system (converted generator), period correct dual exhaust, some slightly more modern shocks and the turn signal lights under the bumpers. He plans to show it in AACA meets with his 29 Model A so he kept it as close to original as possible.

    682LINY,

    Since this predates the F series, would there still be a place for it at the F-100 Super Nationals?

    Great job. The color says it all.



    682 LINY. Looking at your wheels. Look like GM 15" 5X5 referred to as GM 40 rib.

    I have a set for my Olds. wagon. I need a set of caps. Wouldn't have any would you???



    Thanks....Gerald

    I would love to see a photo of the completed 41.
    The cab is very similar,

    But the front sheet metal would be very different.
