    Some great pic's on here and some excellent inspiration, mine is still just a body with half the chop done and a set of un-chopped doors.
    I've noticed there's no pic's of trucks with a Deluxe front conversion, I'd like to see a couple as my truck is a blank canvas in that area.

    Thanks CW, I've seen the sectioned one before, not really my thing (I prefer a bit of gloss). I understand the Deluxe fronts have a different body bolt pattern to the pickup?? Other than that are the front fenders the same std/deluxe/pickup??

    I hope this doesn't make anybody upset but I couldn't think of anywhere on the entire web that would be better place to post this than here! I cut the roof & back panel off a true '40 that had been cut to pieces right up to the windshield post. It's a good piece and I'll be using it on my new '40 PU project. In the meantime I ran it over to my glass man , we turned it upside down strapped it to one of his shop carts. (We did the same thing about '92 with a '66 roof panel. I'm still selling headliners out of that mold.) A fiberglass headliner for these trux is a natural. My last project '40 I ordered a headliner out of some place in Oregon. It fit OK but was black ABS plastic, square corners, just didn't seem to be what I wanted. We're making a mold for a headliner, three piece, that will look like the outside of the roof when painted, dished rounded corner, slip under the header panel, smooth, real smooth. What I need to know is what color do you think I should ask for in gel coat. I'm thinking Dove Gray. See my album for my last '40. Your suggestions appreciated.

  12. Greybearded - dove grey sounds good to me - PM me an approximate cost of the HL as I'm interested.

    This was mine. it was built as a hot Rod in the 50's in Santa Ana CA, then got the Cragar's in the 60's. Had a 327/T350. I put an MII front end under it (this picture is with the original front end still under it), but being a die hard Ford guy I didn't dig the 327 so when an offer came along, it went down the road.

    Just when you think you've seen every thing some one puts a downward arch in a hood reveal, sweet.

    My newly aquired 40, been sitting since 68. Only took me 20 years to get the guy to sell it to me! The owner bought it in 63, swapped in a J2 Olds and drove it thru high school and beyond till he blew up the Olds and parked it. 20 years ago it was the "no, I'm going to fix it up someday" story. He finally decided "someday" isn't going to happen.

    With a little luck I hope to have it on the road this summer.

  21. Sorry, can't show any more. Sworn to secrecy, shouldn't have shown that much, but couldn't resist. fortunately I don't think the guy we worked on it for is on here.

    Killer Don, thanks for the sneak peak!!!
     
  23. I REALLY like the CMG 40. I also think that the classifieds listing, at one of the "dealer" sites has the heading "Ford Roadster Street Rod (1940)" above it!

    I think that I saved every picture of that truck that the dealer has on their web site.

    That '41 is also right up my alley, too!
     
  24. WOW.......really nice metal work here! Please show us more when the owner is not around....thanks.

    Thanks! The truck is on an 86 SWB Ford Ranger chassis. I relocated the rear axle a little to get the wheelbase to 112". Chassis width and track is really a nice fit for the 40.
