    I bought this 37 from a fellow HAMBer a year or so ago, took it apart, and build it over the months. I finally got it drivable and wanted to show it off a little so here it is...oh, it has a 37 flattie, with two 94's , a dropped axle with a reverse eye spring in front, and a few leaves removed out back.

    Beautiful truck!
    I'm working on trying to get a flathead out of a '37 pickup running right now, and it's driving me nuts!
     
  11. Really nice, like a 37 p/u should look.

    Thanks for the compliments! It's a 52 Ford customline wheel I reamed the wheel to the correct taper, and machined a slot in it to accept a half moon key to fit the stock steering shaft
     
  15. That's just too cool!

    IMAG0234_1.jpg IMAG0235_1.jpg I built the column drop using 2 old drops and basically joining 2 left sides. I wanted something that looked sort of factory built, without the lock and key assembly.

    It was pretty good..I just wanted to make it mine..about the only thing I didn't take off, or redo, was I left the cab on the frame. I wasn't smart enough to take before picts, I just started ripping' and tearing'
