never heard of Custom Service...what's the scoop?
Not sure Larry. I have two sets of these. Not sure of age. They are in really good shape. They came on the wheels.
Thanks fellas. Still have a bunch more to go. Plans are to enjoy it as is for awhile and then pull it apart and get it looking nice.
These 32 Ford Pickups are way too cool. Great looking project.
Bitchin' truck! It has great patina. I like the simple approach you took with it. I considered (a while back) running a stock, undropped axle under mine but instead I'm doing it fenderless with 18's like Danny's truck. It looks good that way, though!
Oh Man that truck is awesome. I am jealous.
It's a nice lookin little truck you have enjoy. Roger
He caught me at a weak moment. He said how much and I said, so he bought it but I said I am keeping the 25 louver hood
hahaha...ya big softy
We still have it. My niece drives it. She drives the wheels off it.
It still looks good. Is it still driving good
Here goes a dumb question.?
Did I these trucks come in short and long bed options ?
No they were long real long
Not a single problem.
All the small trucks had the same bed. The BB trucks were available in a 137" & 151" wheelbase.
DAM! I love those 32 trucks
The '32's had a 6 inch shorter wheelbase than the '33-'34's. This caused the rear axle to be closer to the back of the cab by that amount.
Yes, but the bed length stayed the same from 32-34
Updated pics. In my yard and at the Bayou Round Up. I have the truck for sale in the classifieds.
Damn. Perfect looking truck. ( ! )
Would you mind telling where or what those front shock mounts come from?
You either modify F1 ones or buy them from multiple rod shops. Listed as 'F1 style shock mounts.'
That's a cool little truck !
Yeah i just havn't seen that shape in plain steel before, they look like the socal ones, maybe they are stainless unpolished.
You can get repro stock ones in cad plate and s/s 'hot rod' ones unpolished. I've seen stainless ones from Drake that broke across the top hole. You wouldn't believe how much a front axle flaps around without a functioning shock absorber!
I'd feel better with Ford forged ones then modifying them.
They are the stainless unpolished SoCal mounts.
cool little truck!
