rod brakes worked quite well provided they were adjusted properly

That's what A-bones came with. Why mess with it. The technology wasn't all that old at the time.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

And more silly stuff like sawblades and cowskulls, plus the cobwebs, skulls ect.

I did try and stay true to the spirit of those builds, using what you have and making it fit, even though I do have disc brakes and radial tires...and a 5 speed.
