Finally the stars are aligned and I can begin my 39 Pickup project.
I will try to post pics as I go.
Going to follow along, as a fellow Ontarian.
Yeah, like he said Ontario.
Subscribed! Thats a good lookin' truck.
Nice truck! Good Luck with your project.
Bag and tag EVERYTHING and take more photos than you think you will need.
Buy those zip lock bags with the white labels, that way you can write on it with a sharpie. Then you can put them all some where you can't find them like I do. Nice looking project.
I have driven my 39 every day for 17 years
Looks like a great starting point!
Henrietta the '38 Ford pickup and I will follow with great interest. Looks like a straight and solid old truck.
Great pick up.
I have been unbolting relentlessly.
Now all the stuff that was here ...
Is over here...
Just have to take out the seat and unbolt the box and cab (still trying to figure out the best way to do that)
got the dash all cleared out...
We still have snow on the ground and it has been around freezing so I have been working on my induction...
What do you mean you still have snow on the ground? We're in the Soo, and there's just the odd little pile. But, there's a whole bunch of pot-craters in the road to replace the snow!
Looking good on the pickup, too.
Looks very solid and mill looks ready and waiting.
don't think I have seen a truck that rust free that far north... what a great start... i'll be tuned in.
Nice, big giant model car kit
Rusty and I are along for the ride as well.
Really nice truck to start with, I miss the one I had. Bob
Great looking project. Looks like you have the luxury of having a large enough workspace to be able to neatly lay out all the parts nearby.
Yah, I'm really quite proud of my shop - I built a lot of it myself. It is 38' x 60' and took two summers to get set up...
Man, your shop has me beat by a foot and a half width! But I got ya beat on height. Big door on East end is 16x16 opening and trusses are 18ft above the floor. Four 10x10 doors on the side. Second floor on South and West sides are at 11.5 ft x 10 ft wide. It has a 40ft boat in the middle of it and up to 7 cars and a few motorcycles.
I like the way your roof and siding looks better than mine though. Mine is a pole building with all metal roof and siding.
Your truck looks like a really solid rig. I love the flathead.
i took one apart in 1968 and got it back together by the fall of 72.your truck looks like it was apart and back together before you got it.you have a great start.
.should've left it together, wouldn't have taken much to get it runnin/drivin...
All unbolted now...
Got it positioned under my handy dandy "big body parts lifter"...
Yup! there is definitely some 80 year old metal (and wood) here...
Gettin down to the bones...
Actually the front "bones" and the frame is all the chassis parts I will be using... gonna be some old truck parts available
