    Steel 33-34 Ford pickup runningboards have been made as reproductions for decades, with stock diamonds or smooth.
    Fenders have always been difficult to find, sometimes a couple of pairs of rough fenders can be worked into a good pair but can you do the work or afford to pay someone to do it?
    Rootlieb has made new hoods for decades too.

    I believe that one of the two front pickup fenders typically came from the factory with a wheel well. Must rodders don't like the wheel well, so some fab work must be done to remove it.
     
  7. Can the brookville 32 roadster pu fenders be used for a 32-34 pu?

    The trucks in 32 used the passenger car fenders and hood. The 33-34 trucks used their own fenders, hood, and lights, with the big truck fenders being a little (about 1 1/2") wider than the pickups. Reproductions are available for the 33-34 pickups.

    Or you can use 1 1/2 ton 33-34 front fenders which don't have the spare tire well. Ford did not change the wheel opening on the larger trucks until 35. I have one on the front of my 34. Rear P/U fenders have been pretty much unobtainium for decades. Unless you are building a high buck hot rod, I'd just get fiberglass fenders.

    I built this one 30 years ago with fiberglass fenders and reproduction metal running boards because they were hard to find back then. There is nothing wrong with glass fenders on a street driver. IMHO

    The 34 Ford Pickup/Panel grille has a chrome diecast radiator ornament from the radiator cap down to the bars in which the Ford blus oval mounts. The flat area would have small holes around it for the clips which hold the stainless trim surrounding the bars.

    Nice project!
    The 33 and 34 grills are only different in that the 34 has provisions for a fancier emblem. See the pics of the grille on my 34 in my album here.
    Stay away from any 32 fenders. they are different in sizes.
    Good luck trying to find doors........
    I have a quality unused fiberglass right rear fender that I'll sell for 75 bucks if your interested.
    Learn alot aboiut differences here...

    That is a 33 grill. The grill itself has the recess for the blue oval. The 34 grill has a raised section on top for the chrome bull nose to match up with and the blue oval mounts in the chrome piece.

    You could do what HOTPRIMER and his friend Dave Dulin did. Mount your 34 cab on a 32 frame and use 32 fenders and other sheet metal. There's a thread on it. Something like Confused 32-34 p/u. Check out HOTRODPRIMERS stats.

    when looking for front fenders, watchout for the front of the fenders that sit on the frame under the grille, 33/34 angle outward to acommodate the front apron whereas 32 go strait

    Wow appreciate all the response here you guys been getting the new shop ready all summer.

    Back on the site for the cold months. When we can get back in the garage & start tinkering. Nice to have a shop but my stuff never gets into it.:mad:

    Just an update here I came across a new frame & wishbones, a set of stock spoke wheels. I have to get the frame blasted & coated with some Chassis Saver Satin black.

    Looks like one of the guys got me some front fenders in NY so we are on the way again.

    So I have a extra frame that is bobbed in the front if anyone needs it.
