Especially the 38s & 39s. They're like warts.

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.

I really like your frame cart/jig. I also think 37 pickup bodies are about as cool as they get.

That's the plan . Shortened bed, mild chop, front axel pushed forward, no fenders , maybe a V-ed spreader bar in front and round pipe rear bumper. All is subject to change.

A little progress. Split the wish bone and straightened in the press, welded bungs in for tie rod ends. Sand blasted bones and spindles. Ground welds off axle from when it was possibly a trailer axle. Sanded the axle and primed it all. Now waiting on kingpin kit from Ebay, front spring and brake kit from Posies. should be this week. Next purchases should be four bar kit for rear, rear coil overs, brakes for the rear end. Also steel for the frame. Any recommendations on a four bar kit? I was looking at Speedways universal kit.

I haven't a clue. My only experiences are with serious drag racing stuff.

Old Iron?
