I don't think you will find an assembly manual per se. If your panel truck is a 1/2 ton, you may want to purchase the '37 book from the Early Ford V8 Club as the engine/chassis is basically the same. Many of the other parts and assemblies are the same as the pickup truck. If you have someone who has a pickup, you would do yourself a favor by looking at it and taking lots of pictures. An owners manual may help a little, but not likely. A dealer presentation manual would have some value, but again they are very rare and expensive.

Oldandtired on this forum is a wealth of information and has a '39 panel which is somewhat similar.

I recently finished restoring a 1935 Ford Panel Delivery. There are many similarities between your 37 and my 35, so if you have specific questions, I may be able to help. Photos of what you have would certainly be a good start.

There are several things I will probably need answers for and I appreciate your offer to help. One thing I am looking for is pictures or information on what kind of weather stripping goes around the back doors and I believe I am missing part of the back door latch. There doesn't appear to be any information on line for this area of the truck, I assume the front part would be similar to a truck of the same year.

Hi Everyone. Doubledot, welcome to the forums!

Can I make a gentle suggestion that will probably help you in the long run? Keep your discussions running on this thread. In my personal opinion, it makes it easier for the helpers to stay on topic. You have gotten responses from some folks who have deep knowledge on your subject.

I say this because some folks start a new thread for each issue/question and sometimes I find it difficult to keep some stuff straight in my head.

You've got a very cool vehicle. Looking forward to more...
