Features 35 - 36 Ford Pickup Rods

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by andrewvolsen, Apr 8, 2009.

  1. I've been sitting on this for 10yrs now, so, on Sept. 8 I decided to make a start. My wife, Irene and I got the frame down from the attic and laid it on the floor. Dug out the rest of the parts and mocked them up. Have most of the parts now. Will do a proper build thread later.

    a great start. whats that engine?

     
  5. Thanks treb11. I want to put in a 302 ford motor I have, but, it needs a complete rebuild and I can't afford it at the moment, so, some time ago I broke up an 88 olds station wagon, and I am using the 350 diesel and auto, the prop, and the rear axle and wheels. I have rebuilt a Jag IFS which I had the bolt pattern altered to take the olds wheels, so, with the ifs, diesel eng., and radial tires it's not strictly trad, but, will have the "look" (I hope). Bonnet, side panels, grill shell, and seat frame off to blasters next week (260mile round trip). Quite difficult when you live on an Island in the Atlantic.:)

    Got a few miles on my new shop truck now and I think it`s a keeper. I`m starting to grow attached to it.

    Some nice trucks in this post.

    Yeah Charlie, we take this stuff for granted, I have a sandblaster 5 miles from me, 260 miles your a rodder for sure.;) I'm pretty sure you will have the only diesel powered 35 around.

    Here's mine. In the process of redoing the interior and experimenting with a few different things.

    Took off the American Racing Gamblers and put some Cragar Smoothies on, but still not sure of the way it looks. May try some Cragar SS' and running a 10" wheel on the back.

    Also took off the bumper in the front and went with a couple of chrome bumper guards only from a 36 to show the grill off a little more.

    Running a 351W, mildly built, through a FMX transmission. Thinking of maybe trying a non-electronic AOD but can't get the FMX to die. lol

    I still miss my '35 that I had to sell in '72 thanks to military service transfer, sold in San Diego. Full fendered with the rears bobbed for a dock bumper by PO and a spare wheel on each side that looked factory. Competition orange and cream wire wheels, '52 Merc flattie, '35 box with '39 gears and juice brakes.
     
  15. Latest pics of mine:

  16. my dad's old 36. My brother [Jangleguy here] thought it would cut through the air at Bonneville easier with a 10 inch chop and a 20 inch narrowing. Still contemplating a chassis/engine/trans etc.

  23. Here is my 1st a 36 with 48 Merc and 39 running gear circa 1961. Sold it in 1964 cause Uncle Sam was sending me across the pond. Got another one last October. This one has a 327 and Muncie 4 speed. Friend of mine built it. I saw it and had to have it.

  24. OK made some changes. Stole some of the nicer parts from my 32. Got to do it twice because my stupidity resulted in manifold leaking water into the oil. Fortunately the HAMB was down giving me ample time to redo it. I like it.
