How About An F1?

So I’ve given up on my hunt for a 40/41 Ford Pickup for a couple of reasons. First, the prices on these haulers have gotten so high that it doesn’t really make sense for a guy like me to use one as it was intended – a truck. Secondly, I’m doing a lot of wood working lately and the 40/41 bed isn’t wide enough for a standard sheet of plywood.

So, what now? Actually, I’ve started looking for an F1… or maybe even an early F100. Anyone have a line on a nice solid driver with no rust? Look me up if so!

WANTED: 1940/41 Ford Pickup

Hey fellas… I’m looking for a good 1940 to ’41 Ford Pickup driver. Something solid with no rust and driving would fit the bill. If you have something, shoot me a line!

A bit off topic for the Ford Barn, but some of you guys might be interested in this… Essentially, we’ve released The Jalopy Journal #3. It isn’t a magazine. It’s a book. And it’s a book unlike anything you’ve ever read before. Flipping through it is akin to walking through a museum. It has white walls, white floors, gorgeous abstract art, and a furiously inebriated curator. And that’s really the best way I can describe it.

Anyway, you can get a copy here.

It’s a 1940 Ford cutaway chassis and running gear that is owned and was restored by Rick Rennebohm of Whidbey Island, WA. Rick bought the enigmatic chassis on eBay in 2009 without knowing much about its history. He just thought it was cool… and had to have it.
