Here is mine.
Can someone tell me what year Ford truck this is. I always loved 39 deluxe and 40 standard Ford front ends. I think this is a 41 Ford truck but I don't know Fords at all. In any case it is a commercial for a phone co. I just really dig the truck it is so well done I would drive it all the time.
The Ford in the video is a '41. The tell is the hood trim which is wider than the '40 trim. Otherwise the trucks are almost the same although the tailgate is stamped a bit different too.

Trying out a new look in wheels and tires

Damn that looks cool, you sure made the right choice with those chrome reverse wheels, very nice.
Thanks Hombre !
For all of the TV shows we have been watching, we noticed that almost every vehicle in shows, in and about Texas, are inundated with trucks. The older the story, the older the trucks. Even in one of the newer hot rod rebuild programs, it was said that “trucks and Texas go together…”
But, in this past several months, we have been watching the streaming series Justified, with Timothy Olyphant. We watched it every day, as if it were an old TV show that came on nightly, from start to finish. There were times we wanted to jam through a couple of episodes in a row, but we stuck to a nightly series since the end of January 2020. The cast of characters is long and varied.
Despite taking place in rural Kentucky in the modern times, the country side just happened to have their share of old trucks. The TV shows are fairly authentic in their representations and old trucks just fit the scenery in the hills of Kentucky, even though it was filmed elsewhere. (some in So Cal.)
It is not for younger family members as there is violence and some innuendos that are not appropriate for teens or the younger set. It is free and on Hulu for the complete series/seasons. Hulu streaming service is free for the most part, but it comes with advertisements. If you do not want advertisements, then there is a monthly subscription fee. How wonderful it is to watch movies and shows without commercials... If we wanted those wasted minutes, we would have stuck to regular TV programming (a 30 minute show takes 20 actual minutes).

53 Ford truck
In the different area other than supposedly, the Kentucky hills, the Florida Everglades is shown. This 53 Ford truck plays a part of that location.
This was the first series that was filmed elsewhere, like most Hollywood productions, but certainly gives the feeling of being in the rural Kentucky hills. It was based on the book series, “Fire in The Hole” by Elmore Leonard (a 4 book series). Trucks and all…
One of the characters was an actress that we recently saw in a more modern movie, "Booksmart." The Justified series was her at 15 years old and was an integral part of the whole series. The one thing that we thought was different was the southern area accents of most of the characters. At times, there were some character’s soft moments, with accents so thick, that it was hard to decipher the conversation. But, in the end, it was a great show and we kept seeing cool trucks in this whole series, too.
So fire up your binge watching of an excellent series and/or break out the novels by Elmore Leonard. They certainly will make the “locked in place” go by easier for most. YRMV
Here's the Crimson Fridge, doin' truck stuff.
Posted on another truck thread here on the HAMB in black and white. Hasn't changed much since that other picture 1949 International Harvester KB1.... optional Knox Box that came smooth and rough. this one is the rough type which similar to diamond plate but the raised portion is
Ever seen one of these?
Me neither, internet pik
I've seen a '56 "Ranchero", built locally, from a 2-door wagon.
EDIT: A google machine search turned up several
Local to where FTF, are you in NJ? My friends father-in-law built one in the mid to late 50s. It was in Kingston NY. I posted it on here but can't find it. I'll try to find the picture. Obviously I found the picture, story was it was a totaled 4dr. hit in the rear.
Not NJ, the shores of Lake Erie. Pity FoMoCo didn't build them - it would have been relatively easy. I really like the looks of them.
