    This pick-up is a bit of a collection of parts. Bed is most likely from an "A" along with the tail-gate and that is just fine since the overall proportions seem to fit better with the shorter bed.

    Original engine is long gone and replacing it is a '37, 60hp flat-head that has been completely rebuilt a long time ago. Transmission along with the rear end all appear to be original to the truck.

    This is the oldest vehicle in our collection but not the one we have owned for the longest period of time. That honor goes to the '62 Vette that was purchased in 1970 which is the year of our graduation from High School.

    Purchased the '32 in 1973 from my FIL. The truck sat untouched for the next several years while completing a tour of duty in the Army and stationed in Frankfurt, Germany. A lucky young man to be sent to a non-combat zone during the last phases of the Vietnam conflict.

    Was pleasantly surprised to find this thread devoted to the '32 Pick-Up trucks. Have always said that the '32 would be a retirement project and have been retired now for 5 years with many projects started and few if any completed........ "When I grow up, going to fix that bad habit!"

    Plan is of this writing, is to return the truck to the road. Not sure yet if there will be a theme, like military or a local utility service truck, but will be part of the fun going forward.

    Open to all suggestions and tips/tricks to get this one back on the road.

    Thanks for reading and looking at the pictures.

    Best,

    Test.

    I really don't want to make you guys mad but, why is everyone highjacking Drmrman's thread? He has the best looking truck on it.

    Just wanted to tell you that your thread, and Ryan's post on TROG, really complement each other. A joy to follow each. Thank you.

    A massive tree grew up thru the front bumper and another thru the trunk pushing the tank up out of the way. The two trees then lifted the Camaro up on it's side! Had to cut down both trees to extract it.

    I would assume that you've burned through a set of rears by now, no?
