Those frames apparently flex a lot and you have to brace them up to get them more rigid for a pickup. Without the Vic body they're a bit floppy.

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.

From the reading I have done, I have not found evidence of this. If you do have literature on and I would love to read it to figure out how they are fixing it. We consider doing this on that 65 that I built. But we did not like how we had to run such inset Wheels. I've seen a handful of guys talking about swap they have done this way and they seem to be okay. It is a fully boxed frame it might not be too bad of an idea to put a couple extra cross members. I have seen there's not much in between the frame rails side to side. Thanks for giving me a heads up on it though I don't want to miss something when I'm going through this thing. It was such a good buy I couldn't pass it up. Now I hope I can sell it. I might like driving it too much

Better check the part number, it might be an aftermarket replacement. That would ruin everything!

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.
