Good foundation you've got there. What's up your sleeve to make it special? That's what I'll be watching for.

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.

Thanks sir. As for making it special it's just going to be clean and simple. We're not chopping the top or not doing anything to the body. My dad will make sure of that. We will most likely clean it up and clear coat it with that permalac that I use. I did ask about doing that they told me that was okay. The bodies have to be untouched like I said so no paint or anything and I was not sure if that clear coat was going to work or not. But I was told I could oh, I think the fact that is red is going to make it stand out enough. The frame on the other hand we are allowed to paint or do whatever. So I'm assuming that it is going to get some sort of heavy metal flake color on it

Thank you it's really solid oh, it has been inside since the mid-70s for sure. I'm sure it's at inside over at the farm before that

I'm sure he is. He was the man that put the V8 in his Roadster and went out for a test lab and couldn't stop it drove it to the side of the barn. And probably removed it and put the horse on their back in it

Yes that group of guys is a good group of people. I've always thought it would be cool to do something like this, but I've never had the motivation to take it on. I commend them for doing this it's a lot of work

So how does the budget account for things like this inherited body and parts you've had hanging around for years? I'm just curious, since what you already have could easily take some guys $4K to acquire, so is that accounted for at all?

I'm very excited to see what you build for a Model A gasser Those rear tires need to be larger though
