Here's a '34 PU I'd love to get back. I sold this to Frank Root in 1973. An expanding family forced me to sell it after 13 years. It didn't look like this, but I sure did have a lot of fun with it as a high school kid. Frank took 25 years to get it done and has been driving the wheels off of it for the last 10 or so years.

Please don't get upset but my first 34pu took a lot of work and I know rods are frowned upon here but it was snatched from being bulldozed under for a lake. All I had was a rusted cab & frame - no running gear etc.

'Lil Red is my current ride and she has been fun - although not as easy to drive as the 1st one.

Hi, Jack 34PU, my PU came with the 351 and automatic with a 9" with 3.25 gears. If I do my math right, the standard 3 speed and 3.78 rear has a combined ratio of between 10.54 and 13.23 depending on the first gear ratio. My 3.76 first gear and 3.25 rear give a 12.22 ratio. I'm thinking i will be OK. If it needs to go lower, there are plenty of gears out there for the 9 inch. I would have liked something lighter than the 9" but it was in when I got it home. Bought the adapter on E-bay and don't really know which it is. Fits good. Al K,

Update 9/11/14 - This truck has been sold. It was on my list of things to do, but I realized I would never have time to do this with all my other projects having higher priority. So off it went to a good home in West Virginia.

If you are also talking about pictures of big trucks, here are a few of my '32 model B, 1-1/2 ton, 131" wb, stake bed truck. Note the number of louvers on the side of the hood. If I ever get some of my other projects finished, I would like to drop in an early 21 stud engine to replace the 4 banger and replace the rear end gears or maybe the complete rear end with something that would make this truck more drivable on main roads. It will only do about 40 mph top speed now.

I moved from Miissouri to California in 1965 in this truck. Had all my worldly possessions in the backand it looked a little bit like The Grapes of Wath. I still have it and drive a couple of times a month. Mostly stock except a 21 Stud LB Engine, '39 Trans, hydraulic brakes, a Columbia and I made a steering box for it using F100 Gears. This truck brings back a lot lf memories when I drive it. I think the '34 was the best looking PUs Henry made.

Chris, You have a great looking truck, I like the foglights. I agree that the '34 is among the best.

Mine also has a Columbia- considering the distances I drive probably is overkill, but sure is fun to shift.

JM 35 Sedan - Was your BB truck a very late one in '32? What range of serial # is it? I've heard they only made the 25 louver hood for a couple weeks in November of '32.
My 1/2 ton pickup has one, and it is an AB 5 million # instead of B or 18 prefix. It's definately a '32 - 106" wheel base, gas tank under the seat, removable firewall, etc. But it is titled and licensed as a 1933 because it was first sold in November of '33! Another quirk is the rear frame was clad on the outside from ahead of the kickup back past the shock area. I've never seen another one like it.
Mainly curious about the vin #. Thanks, theBoB

This is my '32. I'm 30 years old at the moment and my father, Richard, gave it to me 28 years ago. Evidently I was scared of it because the 4cyl engine vibrated and I didn't like that. To help warm me up to the truck my Dad told me it was mine and I never had another problem with it, lol.

My Dad purchased it in 1981 from an ad in the paper. A man purchased Jim Lattin's Hi-Grade Plating shop in Pomona, Ca and this truck was part of the deal. The new owner had no use for it, so he put it up for sale. Mechanically, the poor thing was worn out so in the early '80s my Dad went through it and rebuild the front suspension, replaced the rear axle with a good used 3.78 unit and had his good friend Chris Wickersham rebuilt the 4cyl engine and B trans. He also added 16" Kelseys and 600-16 Firestones.

The truck remained in this state until 1995. I had turned 15 and before I got my license and could drive it I wanted to make some basic changes. My Dad and I installed a new dropped axle, reverse eye spring, de-arched rear spring, 3.54 rear axle, 46-48 hydraulic brakes / drums and he came up with what would be the prototype for our "World Famous" (haha) '32 bolt-on master cylinder kit. I also replaced the 600-16's with new Firestone 4.50-16 front and 700-16 rear tires.

Today the truck remains nearly identicle to it's '95 re-do except that I have replaced the front tires with 600-16s and added a Pete Eastwood dropped headlight bar. The external cosmetics remain the same as when it was purchased in '81. I have been mentally toying with the idea of putting the suspension back to original and putting the stock 18" wheels back on. Since I have my T-V8 hotrod now I no longer feel the need to modify this one and am starting to feel that it deserves to be put back to original.

This is a very early '32 with a January production and has features that pre-dates V8 production, such as the k-member does not have holes to mount the V8 stabilizer rods. The flywheel housing number also still matches the frame.

It's definately a '32 - 106" wheel base, gas tank under the seat, removable firewall, etc. But it is titled and licensed as a 1933 because it was first sold in November of '33! Another quirk is the rear frame was clad on the outside from ahead of the kickup back past the shock area. I've never seen another one like it.
Mainly curious about the vin #. Thanks, theBoB

theBoB, I'll have to check serial numbers to answer your question. If I can find something, I will edit this post and let you know. I bought this truck about six years ago thinking I would just resell it and make a few bucks to help fund my other projects. No one would pay what I was asking so I decided to just store it away as a future project. The 25 louver hood is worth a good chunk of the $$'s I paid for the complete truck. JM

The were my dad's heads...but he gave them to me, so I guess they are mine.

I can't give out all of my speed secrets...but I will say the heads are sort of a joint project between Henry Ford and myself...

Yeah Neal, 10-4 on not giving up too many of your secrets :-) They look something like ORD (Pre-WWII) 24-stud cylinder heads with the ORD removed on the front surface and I have also seen a set of heads that looked something like those on a Flathead powered English Pilot. In any case, I like them. They are different and that's cool. JM

What a great looking truck. I wouldn't expect to see a nice original '33 still out there that is for sale. Most of the ones that come up for sale look like they have been thru the wars. Almost all of the good ones are in the hands of guys who will not part with them.

Great Find!!!!

Thanks for starting this thread. I think Trucks have been Short Changed for years. The passanger cars get all fixed up with shiny paint and chrome but trucks are a little more humble.

Every Truck was originally bought for a purpose such as working on the farm or hauling freight. Every one has a story to tell. All are individual in their own way.

Cars may be Cool but Trucks are WAY MORE INTERESTING!!!!

Gibbs brand penetrating oil/rust preventative. The stuff works great and is easily wiped off with thinner when it's time to paint. The truck will be torn apart and painted/plated/upholstered in the next year or so...

I am getting new glasses in a few weeks. Actually, it looked so much like yours that I did not pay attention (as usual).

I always loved my truck and don't know why I sold it but I built in the 90's I wouldn't be happy with it today as I had drifted away from the more traditional look. I'm so amazed to see all the beautiful trucks that have shown up on this thread. I wish I knew where it is today.

Some more early pictures of the now named 'Merlot'. I was working in the lab in 1957 when I saw this 1934 truck in original condition, at a local garage in Leamington Ontario. The white uniform was changed daily, and I have stopped off to see my girlfriend on Oak Street for lunch. Those were the days.

i know there are other 32-34 trucks out there. Post a picture of your truck, and keep this thread active. This picture was taken while "Merlot" awaited to get his Best Truck award at a local car show, just four days out of the garage, and hauled up the hill. Byron.

I am not able to paste your photo to my '32-34' truck collection file. I have over 50 photos mostly collected from the Fordbarn. Is there a way to unblock it? Thanks, Byron.

There was a 32 tow truck at the junk yard in my town. It was sitting out front for a few months, then was gone. Was in rough shape, but complete.

Yours is looking great! Looks like you have to fab a bunch of parts.

I saw this truck at the LA Roadster Show this weekend. Possibly someone knows more history than I do. It had a rebuilt 4 cyl, rebuilt chassis (some what), 25 louver hood, dual side mount spare tires, very very straight - no rust. All in all, a great project for some loving home. The seller said it was about a 20 year project between the first restorer and himself but he just didn't have the time or interest to complete it. The truck sold on Saturday for $15K. To my surprise, I went back on Sunday and the new owner was looking to trade it. I hope it stays together and gets a proper restoration or mild hot rodding (you know, Cragar head, Columbia rearend, 16" kelseys)

This is one of my 32 pickups I drug home about 10 years ago. I thought it was a home made one until Flat Ernie on the HAMB sent me a picture of his red one that he owned while stationed in England. Mine is left hand drive and 4 cylinder.

I hope the new owner keeps the body as stock. It looks like just about a year would have it back on the road. Byron.

Just hang on to that truck. Sooner or later I'll take it off your hands. I know a guy who can rivet the bed together.

Mike is capable of doing it and it would look like Henry did it when he got done. But, fortunately he's only saying that so I'll get excited and step in to rescue it from such a fate.

if you plan on running 7.00 on your 18" you will need to do this to your wheels, or i can do it for you.

Nice, tasteful, but different! Like how you did the opening in the hood.

Here's a great looking truck. I took this picture at the Horseless Carriage Club Holiday Excursion last week in Pasadena, CA.

I remember this thread from the summer, but don't know why I didn't put a pic or two of my '32 B pickup back then - anyway, here they are. Ignore the Ill. license plate - that was just stuck on for looks while I waited to get it registered here in England. The truck came from NJ back in mid-2010.

i am a little late with a reply but;i cut the required louvers,to be removed about one and a half inch above the opening i wanted, 11 louvers in may case,if this cut is straight and in the right place it makes the job a lot easier. I cut the lower section of the hood 1 inch below the bottom of the louvers to be removed ,and moved this section up to create the opening i wanted. I spliced the louvers close to start of the flair on the section i moved up,welding the splice close to the flair made it easier for me to control alignment,warpage and makes the splice less noticeable. After cutting splicing and welding, i fabed a frame from half inch sq. Tubing and welded it on the back side of the hood as a stiffener.i used a mig and am only a fair welder.ps i used a practice hood.good luck ed

Can any of you fellows tell me how the gas gauge operates in my '32 BB truck? I've cleaned up and re-soldered a tiny crack in the tank unit, and returned it to the tank. however the tiny steel line (running to the gauge) is rusted off and clogged shut. So I will need to replace it. But it would be helpful to understand just HOW it works. I'm now wondering if the gauge will still work. Can you help? Also, is the tallest tube on the sending unit (and coming out thru the bottom) supposed to be an OPEN air vent? Thanks.

Cigar, take a look in here. I know there are doors available, but upwards of $1K for a decent set

Dave,
Here is a link to a helpful site:http://www.fordgarage.com/pages/32fuelgauge.htm
You can also pickup the 32 Service Bulletin at any repro vendor, ie LeBonney Baron, Mac's, Dennis Carpenter, C&G, etc... The service bulletin covers the fuel gauge and related system in detail.

To your last question, yes, it needs to be open.

Keep V-8ing and 4-banging!

Out on the road now, ready to swap out for a drop axle. One from Sid's can't be far off in my future. But in the meanwhile, happy motoring:

Hello. We've inherited my Father-in-law's truck, which is in the middle of it's second revival, and I have a few questions.

1. I've been told that this is a Model B truck and that makes it special. Everything I've found indicates you either got a Model BB 1 1/2 ton, or you got the Model B. Seems I see as many B's as anything else. Do I have this right, or am I missing something.

2. Truck has the spare tire on the passenger fender, yet most other trucks I see don't. Was this an option? What gives?

3. What gastank would you recommend I use? Seems the tanks advertised for 32's wouldn't fit under the bed.

First picture is probably from 1977, after he brought the truck back from the dead. That's my mother-in-law, my wife and her two younger sisters. We're all a bit older now.

Next picture is what the truck looks like today. I have lots of work to do, but most of the truck is there.

Thanks.

Here's my 34 I've had now for 8 yrs. Originally from California. An old rod found in pieces that still had the pitted chrome axle and driveshaft along with an old chromed gad pedal linkage. Running two of the three Stromberg's. Uncut top and bobbed bed. Painted it this past winter.

Perhaps it's time for an update since this thread has been unearthed. Back in May 2010 I posted pictures (post #19) of my two pickups. Since then Asa, the black-primered one in my original post, has been totally redone by Limeworks Speedshop. Here's Asa now. I have owned it more than 45 years. It has had 2 Chevy engines and a Ford 302 but now it has a 276" flathead.

Here it is with painted stock bed floor and with the removeable Bruce Horkey "show deck" of maple boards I installed. The Macs Tie-down strips are useful additions also.

Nice truck JM35... I like the big ones, I am looking to get my 1934 1/12 tonner a little faster on open roads..
Might look into "Straightpipes" 's suggestion for an inline Michell overdrive.
Anybody know more about 34-39 axle ratio's ? Would be nice to just change the complete axle for a faster one...

Great photos of some really nice TRUCKS.... I have had my since '69 and had '51 Merc and juice brakes when I drove it in high school. Restored it over many, many years and love to drive it when Michigan weather is nice.

Ok, more pics, here's a pic from an outing last Sunday - it was a beautiful morning for a drive and both pickups performed well, which is good because the restored one has had oil pump problems (original 34 motor that was rebuilt, original 34 oil pump) and this was the first run after fitting a replacement gear to the pump. Both pickups belong to a good friend.

Our '34 pickups always draw a crowd. Here are a couple of pics from back in 1958 when I was in engineering school. A group of students hangs out with the truck. I'm sitting on the running board, second from the right. Next a gang gets a ride to the homecoming parade.

To keep the thread going, here is a more recent picture of my 34.Still got a long way to go. It was far too rusty to restore. Even the frame had to be discarded. Not much left of the original so its becoming a hot rod as a companion to my stock 1928 truck.

Nice, user friendly. Similar to how we will build ours but unfortunately ours has been painted an ugly red at some stage so with the body repairs etc it will lack the appeal of yours.

Plans are to leave it alone other than putting an '36 flathead in it and drive it. I wasn't looking for a truck , but a friend of mine bought it to flip and when I saw it I had to have it. He had it for a whole 7 hours from buying it and delivering it to my house. It should be a good cruiser for Victoria this summer.

Bought the '32 1 1/2 ton here on Orcas Island and the '34 over in Mt Vernon. The '32 had an 8ba in it and I drove it off the trailer, the '34 had an original looking 21 stud engine. The '34 is still on the island and I'd love to get it back. I don't think the buyer has ever taken it out of his garage in 15 years.
