    This will be my next ride after the 56. Can the sedan doors be used to lenghten the cab? Im 6'4'' and would like to have a little extra room if I can get it, otherwise I will live with it.

    Same overall length. Howells makes extended cab corners, though.

    The doors, at least in 28-29 CC-PU are not the same as the passenger car doors. I don't believe that they interchange, in any case.
     
  24. I sold this one last fall after I put it together from a pile of parts and pulled the cab off my AA truck (the crate in the bed was for some of the loose parts that went with it). Had I kept going to finish it, it wouldn't have looked a lot different other than a set of headlights and the rearend moved back to the stock location (it has a '40 rear and bones under it). I'm working on another one now but the parts aren't nearly as nice.

    she's a bit of a mutant: '29 Briggs cowl and hood, 30 doors and back of cab, all the rest is 29.

    Rolleiflex,

    Sorry for the long delay in reply,
    I don't often get around to looking back to follow through on posts

    My 29 is a late 60's/early70's build, was built in Ca. by a guy up around
    the Fresno/Modesto area. sold to Boyce Asquith who owned it till he died,
    the estate sold it to Darrel here in OC, who literally drove the wheels off it
    (one of these days I'll scan the pics from when I first bought it)

    was running a 289 Ford / C4 with a 57 Pontiac rear end
    now, it's a 289 Ford / AOD still with the 57 Pontiac rear end.

    PS: Anybody who might know the original builder or have pics from when Mr. Asquith
    owned it, I'd appreciate help in learning more of the history of the truck
    Thanks.

    Thanks, Nort!

    You have one beautiful little truck!

    And I totally understand about looking through old posts, I finally got around to checking back on this one myself.
