    Does anyone have pictures of a fenderless 40 thru 47 ford pickup. Please post here.
    I picked up 3 47 pickups to build a 40 shop truck out of and was thinking of a fenderless rat rod out of the other parts but have not seen any pictures of a 40 - 47.
    thanks; homebrew

    Brooding Swede. i LOVE that thing. i remember when you first posted pics. i would'nt mind owning that thing myself.

    here is my 16 year old neighbor's (Bucket~Boy) "real cheap rod" based on a 40-47 cab sectioned 4 1/2", chopped 5 1/2" (a real PITA) and channeled 4" over a frame built from 4x4 I-beam found at the scrap yard for $50 (20'). it'll run a 4 cylinder 5 speed out of a Ford Ranger, till a suitable V8 is aquired (ie. he can afford one). it'll also sport a scratch made shortened bed that'll house the gas tank and battery.

    I've seen that one at Famoso the last couple of years and being all my film is on a digital I don't keep them long but I believe that this truck has a tracter grille like an 8 or 9N and has always lit my fire.

    Tisdelski is that a 37 hood and grill on the truck?
     
  12. Not sure about the hood but the Grill appears to be a 36 ford car grill. HRP

    In a couple of weeks, I could post some pictures of my 41 Ford truck I am finishing. It's gonna look pretty cool I hope. Just a few more things to finish up before it will be ready to roll...
