Yes, that is right. We are building the 43 Ford Pickup. 43? you ask.
Yes it was an airforce truck. and had a few different things going on from the civilian version.
Like the lack of script letters on the side of the hood.

It is a pretty good cab, but has some rust, and a small dent in the roof.

It was last tagged in 1967 and shows 16000 miles on the odometer. But there is no place for 116000, so I don't know for sure.

Air still in the tire, since before 1967.

But I had a few hours to work on it today. So it lost some weight.

I also had some time to start the frame. I went to the local scrap iron place, and found two pieces of 1/4 wall 2X3 rec. tubing. I have decided to taper the frame.
