Nice work on the bed. Was the source for the perfectly matching inserts for the widened "tubs" the material you removed form the sides? Well done indeed.

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.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Dozer, I put a pair of shocks on a '68 Super Bee a long time ago; vertically like that. I learned that the shocks stabilize the side to side motion of the rear-end if they are slanty like the factory installs them. My car had leaf springs and tall hangers, where yours has triangulated top links so you're O.K.. This message is a caution for the next guys; If you have to put your shocks on vertically, you will need a panhard bar or triangulated links to stabilize your wiggling bum, I mean rear-end.
Keep on working, Dozer and keep on showing pictures.

Thanks Mac, there just wasn't any other place to install them.
