Default The Darksyde 1941 Ford PU

So new builder, picked up a 1941 Ford 1 ton. This truck I found out had its running gear changed out at some point, to a 1949 engine and rearend. Truck is now in my garage. Old flathead removed. Just working on removing the cab so I can get at the Frame. Have a 1995 F150 donor with a 351w, a c4(from different truck), and a 8.8 rear.

With the 1 ton axle I'm going to build some brackets to run a elliptical front end.

That'a a good start, Darksyde. The cab looks straight and pretty rust free.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Very cool. Since I own one, I am partial to the 40-41 tonner front sheet metal. You may want to reconsider using the front axle, wheels choices for that truck are pretty much what's on it.
If you aren't going to use those running boards, I may know a guy that wants them.
Also I would be interested in that long arm rear view mirror. Where are you located?
