    A friend of a friend let me know about this 33' pickup after somone else found out about it and gave the widowed 40 yr. old a lowball offer. She had no idea of its worth and said her husband and uncle were going to build it for their 10 yr. old son. She said she's going to use the $$$$ to take her son to DisneyWorld as she has no idea on fixing the truck up. To my amazement there were 2 32' car grill shells in the Model A box which I took one while her uncle took the other. Best part is that she was just 30 miles from my house.

    Pictures would be kinda cool, in addition to the great story, of course. Congrats on a sweet score!

    Only the right front is a 14" general Jumbo...I've never seen a 14" artillery wheel. It has guide headlights and a 32' heavy axle and a box of brand new Bob Drake handles and mirrors. It's sitting on a bb frame which to me looks alright seeing that it'll have fenders on it. The Model A box will be swapped out fo a 33-34' version. I needed it like a hole in the head but couldn't let it get away and have someone being taken advantage of.

    I have enough projects to keep me busy for at least a year before I can get started on it.

    And yes, I told both her and her son that they'll be the first to be taken for a ride in it upon its completion. I'll probably have them pick out the body color when it comes that time.

    I've already done 2 hotrodded 34' trucks in the past 3 years. Since this one is in such good shape I intend on leaving the body stock with fenders and correct box which have the rear feners for. I'd like to use a vintage overhead motor such as an olds or another early Caddy nothing too hairy. Just a nice shop truck that will be driven and enjoyed. Make it simple enough that even you mother would drive it if there is such a thing. I forgot to mention it WILL have 3 pedals.
