    Due to the different shapes of the cab floors, mounting wood is distinct for the generations of cabs. Pic from the Midwest Early Ford catalog: 20181116_081702[1].jpg

    Wrapping up a mechanical rebuild on my 41. It was running fine, but had an opportunity to get a Flathead from Keith Tardell. After I got the engine I didn’t want to put it into a ratty engine bay, then thought I’d better redo the transmission, which has now expanded to a full mechanical rebuild. it’s 100% new mechanically and will be a very nice light duty hauler.

    This truck has absolutely no rust due to moisture. Even the original hardware is clean and comes off easily without having to use penetrating oil.

    I found my passenger inner fender rusted due to leaking a battery and it had been poorly repaired with brazing. I also replaced it while I had it all apart. All other panels are original to the truck.

    Last step is the rebuild of the original Columbia - which is underway. Looking forward to getting this back on the road. .

    Here is a little before/after:

    LOve these 40's but never owned one.
    What do most of these guys use for front ends?? Crown Vic...Mustang II...or do most of them use the old straight axle?
    I like the ones with a low radiator alot more than the tall one sticking up. Just looks right-er(dat-a-word?)
    Mag wheels just don't look right on'em either! Painted rims..maybe wider painted rims with a small moon or just open.
    Sweeeeet!

  11. I have a stock axle in my '40 truck. Crown Vic's are WAY too wide. Lots of street rod guys use Mustang II on them.
     
  12. Stock axle also.
