Features The '40/41 Pickup

Discussion in 'Traditional Hot Rods' started by Ryan, May 25, 2016.

  1. I forgot to post the '41 after I got it home.....well here it is back on the road (after a few months of work).

  2. I like the ribs on the '41 caps.....kinda hard to beat.
     
  3. It's not fancy,
    It's not be driven for years
    But it's time to get it back on the road

    The builder of this fine '40, Frank Zuehl of San Antonio, Texas,
    also built my Deuce highboy a few years before. This photo doesn't do the color or quality justice. I just hope Randy the owner cruises this baby. It truly is beautiful.

    I believe Ryan's heart skips a beat when he sees this neat 'Standard.

    First of all, gorgeous truck @1oldtimer but as I look at all the pages proceeding I see a lot of trucks without spares that still have the fender cut out. You chose to do so. Do you plan to add a spare, just like the originality? Some fill them, some don't. These trucks fascinate me as of late so I'm just asking as I educate myself.
     
  11. The 46/47 truck did not have a spare tire mounted on the passenger side so it doesn't have the depression. It is the same fender except for the front where it mounts to the running board. You can cut the bottom of the 40/41 fender off and weld it on the 46/47 fender and voila.... you have a 40/41 without the depression. Only trouble is these fenders are becoming very hard to find. Someone used to make a patch for the front of the 40/41 fender that can weld to the 46/47 fender but I don't know if it is still available.
     
  12. Thanks. I was really thinking of putting the spare back on the side, if I find the mount. I was also just thinking if something like a '36 car tire cover would look ok on the side.

    I think that would look very nice. You could use the tire cover but not put a tire in it. Make it a cool round tool box.
     
  14. Lets take a minute and talk about the 40 that Ryan used as an intro,, hopefully it has not been done already here.

    The wonderful gold paint was laid on by Gene Winfield, now look at the truck closer, it has Studebaker vents on the cowl below the mirror. The rear fenders are 50's Chevrolet truck and the bed, 50 F-100. More custom, than hot rod.
    And the truck does still exist, without the gold paint and a canvas covered 'camper' on the bed, saw it at El Mirage a couple of years ago,,,

    I hope to finish this build in the next 5-6 months. Plan is to use this as my daily driver in Florida. It's been a 2 year build so far but the end is in sight. It's taken a little longer than planned due to some hospital stays but, shit happens. 20141205_113523_resized.jpg 20160901_122621.jpg 20170209_134813.jpg 20180617_152023.jpg 20180718_134440_resized.jpg 20180803_151651.jpg 20180830_133210.jpg

    @1oldtimer I hadn't had the time to review your thread until today. Nice find and nicer job cleaning her back up. Great truck.

    Just finished doing a budget lower job on my '41 pick up and upgrading the wheels to 16" steel wheels and Black wall Firestones, I used 3 1/2 shackles with the center bolt to eliminate the flex. I also pulled 3 leaves from the front spring pack and about 4 out of the rear spring pack, it rides nice and does rub anywhere so I am happy with my $20 lowering job.

    [​IMG] Thanks for this photo of the cab wood blocks, first time I've ever seen them. Wonder if that would fit a 1939 as well. Are they one piece front to back or two with a brake at the back of the cab? Bob

    The wood blocks are 3 pieces with "finger joints". If you use a later cab (mine is a 1947) the bottom bracing is not identical to a 1940 and you will have to modify the blocks. Hope this helps.
