    Myself, dad, and brother are working on my dad's 1936 Ford truck. The goal is all original looking including the wire wheels except the stance and transmission. We want this to be a solid, very clean driver for he and my mom. I would like for them to be as comfortable taking the truck away for the weekend as they are with their other vehicles. We will do everything, but I think this will be the vehicle that we paint ourselves.

    Goals:
    Color, Exterior - Medium green cab/bed, black fenders and running boards
    Color, Interior - Not really sure at this time
    Exterior - All original parts all the way down to the crank out windshield
    Interior - All original
    Rear Suspension - 8.8 from 98 Interceptor, 3.27 gear, posi, rear discs, and we are even using the links
    Front Suspension - MII with new bushings and such
    Motor - 49-53 Flathead
    Transmission - AOD

    I am here because this is an amazing place to find info and parts for this truck. The amount of info here is almost overwhelming. I love it!

    Here is a brief story about it:

    My dad just bought it from the Civil Engineer I used to work with, and he is the grandson of the ORIGINAL owner. The truck was last insured in 1977 and has been sitting ever since. It was a farm truck so it has some dents and dings, but it is all there. We found it sitting in a nice metal building and still had air in the tires.

    Welcome from Ohio.
     
  14. If the wire wheels are original it's a very early '36. '36 went to the wide five wheels, but a handful of very early '36s rolled out on '35 wire wheels. The Ford V8 emblems being in front of the hood side louvers indicates '36, '35 had the emblem centered above the louvers. If it's a '36 with original wire wheels, you've got a very rare bird. Suggest you get in touch with my friend Lawson Cox at Covington GA. Check out the Fordbarn site, www.fordbarn.com, post on there that you've got a '36 Ford pickup, and Lawson will respond. He'll probably want to come up and see you truck. He knows the '35-'37 pickups inside out.

    Welcome from the Great Smokey Mtns. Very nice truck! Take 38fordpickups advise and research the rarity, you might want to keep it stock and not cut out the original suspension just yet. keep me posted as i'm just down the road .

    Hey Country Gent, I am near the I-40/I-81 split. My in-laws are just across the state line in Haywood Co. so I'm very familiar with the gorge area. Are you in Hartford area?

    What a nice truck...have you posted this on the main board?

  28. Just a suggestion but there is absolutely nothing wrong with leaving the axle under the front,in fact posting mustang II front suspension swaps are not well received by the administration,,it's not considered traditional. HRP
