Love the flame job!
Here's the one I just rolled out of the garage shop last month after it's 7-1/2 yr. birthing. I've fallen in love again .....
Here's one I bought in PA... my crew sure gave me some grief about buying it!
Not so much when I sold it weeks later to a very happy buyer.
It had a MERCURY flathead in it!! It had some issues but was pretty solid overall.
Took a few hoops to get the title straight with the folks in PA but they came through.
Yep, that bed situation will require the MO option. Great stuff at reasonable prices and they KNOW their business and are very helpful.
Here's my good friend Mike Cole's 41. Sweet!!!
I've always liked the '40 that Mike Fennel had.
And then, I'm kinda partial to my '40 stake truck...
BTW, I don't know if anybody posted the link, but there's a great thread, with LOTS of inspirational photos located here: http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/threads/40-41-ford-pickup-picture-thread.629950/
Hometown Al would like my garage. A '36 Ford coupe and a '40 pickup
The pickup is tucked away in the corner. It's in white primer now but I put it on the back burner while I finished up my '65 corvette 396/425 coupe.
Ryan I'll be selling the truck once I have it running. I'm in so far with it I'll never get out
Two other ones by Roy Brizo and Dave Pozzi's built by the talented Bill " goodteeth by Doc Golden " Ganal.
This kid has major talent and an eye for detail and " the look "
Not knocking any of Bill's incredible talent but the maroon truck was a restoration so not technically a build.
A few good ones. Nice thread Boss! Thanks. TEB

My old '41
Ruth Cromer in the speed shop '40 pickup. HRP
K13 your point ? "not technically a build" okay; Henry was the only one who did a "build" on all of these Fords !! happy now
Here's mine. Not really a trad rod and not as clean as some of the others on here. But my daily/parts chaser/works truck.Knocked it together 12 years ago and never stopped driving it. Put 200,000 miles on it in that time and have been everywhere. Been to some great parties with her and met some great people along the way. She's having a service and nut and bolt check at the moment as we are off on another massive road trip in a couple of months
Hey Ryan, just had to draw this in response. I liked these trucks first time I saw (this) one in '75. They are so 'right', they look good with odd beds..
A 40 after a tornado tore up the building it was in. Show winner before and now a winner again. Straightened all the original metal.
Yours is perfect...
Thank you, much appreciated.
Another of the many 40 pickup prizes that I've owned:
The new owner changed it into this:
Sure wasn't what I was expecting.
That is really unfortunate...
In the mid sixties a local electrician had a 40 with a Pontiac 389, 3x2, stock 3 speed. It was Washington Blue with black 15" steelies and pinner whitewalls. It was a sharp looking truck and went like stink.
What is the answer? Don said 38-9. Someone replied 3 rib on doors on 38-9.
I see wipers above glass. Answer?
Picked this one up from a fellow HAMB'er Truck is from Arizona and pretty much rust free. It's on the back burner for now but hope to start on it this winter. Should go good with the 39' and towing the midget!
I loved my 41 but at 6 ft. 5" and looong legs after 2 hours I could hardly feel my legs! I traded it +s for my '40 coupe
lots more room but that PU was great for short ride and hauling everything from refrigerators to shrubs to mulch! that was with a oak bed and polished SS strips! can't beat a pickup! I think it sat just right 4" dropped front and a 9" rear with 3" lowering blocks
FB31, that is one sweet black pu from Arizona, I called him on it twice, pulled the trigger closer to home. You have a great base, cries for a 59 ab t-5 9 inch !
Rustygt, my plans exactly, yes this pu has incredible sheet-metal. Just finished a Flatty for the 39, now I need to get started on one for the truck. I already have collected the T5 and a Currie 9 inch with P & J ladder bars, just need to find the time to start the project!
Couple more of the 36 Fordy. As usual, that "temporary" paint job is being used longer than planned!
Need to tweak my amateur efforts to improve the color consistency. At the time, I was focused on treating the metal and doing body work and then just getting it covered for a little while but...
It is a 40 but the 36 car dash, along with the other 36 components really puts doubts in many minds.
The stock 36 gas filler on the driver's rear fender looks so normal that it really helps with the credibility of it being a 1936 Ford Super Deluxe pickup. A quite rare model.
