Default More panel trucks please :)

Thought I would help test out the new barn with pics of my current 49 panel.

Thanks Ryan, I love the new barn.

Cool truck..I just ran into a guy with a 46 Ford Panel I might be able to get from him..
Hope I do.

I have a 60 Ford panel right now..I could use some rear doors for it.

Nice looking truck. Here are a few shots of our '53 F-100 Panel Delivery and the 8RT we'll be installing next weekend (I hope).

Just curious, are those water pumps going to work in the '53 frame?

Guess I'll take some pics of my project and post them. It's a '48 F-1 Panel that's been apart too long and has too much money invested in it. When it's done I plan to tour the USA and Canada in it. It'll be in M-47 Merc trim when finished.

Gearhead52, what's the history of your panel? looks solid as hell and looks like you are doing it up right.

This one does have a nice body, better than most I have had or seen. I bought this one with no drivetrain and no front or rear suspension. It was pretty much gutted. It was sitting on a wrecked blazer frame that had a rear axle and that was all. The back was loaded full of crap and was a bear to load on the trailer. I have done mostly a mechanical resto to it and the plan was to make it a driver and keep the patina. It is running and driveable now and doing the finishing touches before I put the front sheetmetal on and call it done.

The frame is super nice on it. I had an extra rear axle and driveshaft, and found a 3spd floor shift trans in Texas and replaced its guts. The engine I bought off ebay a few years ago and came out of a car so I had to convert it for truck use. Has lots of oil pressure runs strong with no smoke or blowby.

The next big job is dealing with the gas tank, hope the one I have can be used. I'll post more pics once I get the sheetmetal on.

Here is my 38 panel. I have a 39 pickup running gear and cab that I am close to having running, I intend to take the cab off and put the panel body on. Thats my next big project.

Here are a few of mine.

First, the 52. All original and soon to get a set of WWW tires and 16" rims.




Here's the 51. Also all original except for wheels and the seats. The original seats are now in my 52.





Here are a few that I bought for parts and have since parted out and/or sold.
