Re: My 48 F-1 is on the road!

Ahhhh, now I remember seeing that on here a while back. I think about the time you had just brought it home. It's a "sweetie" for sure ! Sounds pretty nice and strong going and coming.

Re: 1935? Ford p/u I.D.? Value?

36 for sure, there is a radius where the cab and cowl meet, no removable door garnish, deeper grill etc. But as noted, many very usable items and if parted out could put some good "jingle" in yo...
