    Not 36 pickup, but looks like 37 pickup.

    Pick up the latest Rodders Journal. It has a cover story on that coupe. Might even say how they modified it (I haven't read it yet so I couldn't tell ya).
  8. That's a 1937 to mid 1940's E83W Anglia Thames Panel Grill. How do I know, I've got a NOS Grill. I found it from a Englishman. I'm needing A Complete S/S Grill Trim.I'd like to know the Identity of those Bitchin Wheels? The Last year of Rod & Custom, there was a article on a 33/34 Ford 3-W Coupe using the
    1937 E83W Anglia Thames Panel Grill. They also showed a How To: making a Custom Louvered Aluminum Hood. Coupe was a Hiboy, So, on 2nd looking at the Picture, this might not be that 1933/34 Coupe in the Article, not a 1937 Anglia Grill. As, in the Above Picture. Thanks BigDTexasKid

    Im sure its a narrowed 37 pick up.
  10. I recall the R&C article and that was indeed a Thames grille.

    The grille in question here however, is not. Nor is it a stock 37 pickup one, it has been modified and as a result does look a bit like a Thames.

    These are Thames. Similar, but obviously different and a lot thinner.

    Note the two starting-handle holes in the Thames grille. To keep the wheelbase short the E83W had its engine offset to the passenger side, i.e. the left on right-hand-drive vans. Early ones had only one hole, suitably offset to the left. When Ford began making left-hand-drive vans for export the frame layout was mirrored on those, and it made more sense thereafter to make grilles with two holes than two types of grille.
