How about an F series... Is that considered "early"? If so, here's a photo of our '51 F-1.

This is my late '14 delivery, mostly original. It purrs like a kitten and gets driven frequently. Last year, while working on a restoration of an 1800's log cabin, I figured I would throw my tools in the truck, and drive something almost as old as the cabin I was headed to work on. During the day, a fellow stopped by to see our work, and thought the '14 was just yard art. He couldn't believe it was my tranportation for the day. These old trucks are almost bulletproof.

This was destined to have an early flathead V8 untill I found a complete stock chassis this past summer... looks like it'll end up mostly stock now, whenever I can actually get around to working on it...

Hey Chris,
What brakes are you using - If you haven't purchased anything yet, contact Richard (Early V8 Garage) who posts here. Great resource!

Also, whose dropped axle are you using? Watch for interference issues. 'Lil Red looks like she has a dropped axle but just weak springs. Front spring nearly flat across axle but seems to ride well.

I already purchased Richard's kit to do hydrallic brakes. I already have the axle in, everything works well. My Brother dropped the axle for me.

My 1950 F1. I've been a fan of Sheridan Blue Fords since the 1950's. Hauls parts, lumber, guest beds, Christmas trees., bricks, etc. Don't ya just enjoy being on the road in these old pickups?

Let's start with Bullet; built from 12 cars and 14 trucks. Drove it from 2003 until sold it last year. Then the black 40 pkp; another flathead, which now lives in MS. Drove it, too, for a couple years. I've had shop truckS(two or more!) for the last 5 or 6 years. Max driveable at same time was 3 or 4... a man has got to have BACKUPS! That's what I tell my lovely wife.

Here's another pkp I used in 2006-2007. Hate to admit it had a dastardly SBC with 3 twos and a gear drive. I didn't do it! Trk now in GA with a pal of mine.

A couple I've had. The black one with the wide whites and red wheels, I still have. My plan this spring is to put it in paint (light green), and back on the road.

The F-7 is my former fire truck. It has the 296 OHV version of the 317 Lincoln engine and a 5th gear OD transmission. The 3rd picture is from a show I attended in 2009.

Looking at your truck is like looking at your new born baby. No baby is any better looking than your own. All trucks are beautiful.

Not many of us Fornbarners, have their first car/truck, but I am one of the fortunate few. I drove my '34 pickup while working at HJ Heinz, in the lab in Leamington Ontario, after buying it in 1957. He is back on the road again, and is now called Merlot. The colour pic is Merlot talking to a younger Flathead Truck who works for a living, putting out fires! Byron.

O.K. I think I have this figured out. Here are some of the trucks I have owned and/or built over the years. My favorite was my big red, a copy of Dad's work truck from the 30's. The most fun was the Huckster I built for the kids. The most challenging was the before and after 29 PU. Current project is a 30 PU....my last major project...maybe.

Dad's barn find '29 AA last April. It hadn't been started or moved since 1976. The owner actually resided the barn around the Old Girl at one point. I'm proud to say that I drove her out of that old milking parlor!

My father bought this one back in the late fifties. It's the first vehicle I ever drove - at age 11! I still enjoy it as much as ever. It's been maintained/painted over the years, but never restored.

Thank you Flat-V8. I have been tinkering with it to the best of my abilities and its a pretty cute little ole truck. Took it around the block a couple of times, but, its quite cantankerous to stop. But, I have some '40 juice brakes that should fix that right up.

I would have loved to have seen more 38 39 PUs. I guess they are the least popular.

Years ago when I had a real nice 1938 P\U I hated the look of it, so I kept the whole running gear & frame that were near mint, and put a 36' big truck cab on it and sold the 38' body. Now I wish I had it back, that 38'-39' look grows on you! The guy that bought the body slapped it on a late model Ford Ranger chassie, and was on the road in 2 weeks.

[QUOTE=Vic Piano;148926]Thanks, I appreciate that. Here are a few more photos of the '51 F-1.


Nice! I thought I liked it before. It's even better now after seeing the engine photo. '51 Ford pickups are my favorite old trucks. Yours is dead on perfect!

I've posted it before but it's still the best photo I have of my two early Fords. '25 Model T Roadster Pickup and '39 V8 Pickup.

Until the '39 is running, the '25 will continue hauling the concrete and lumber.

A 1941 Ford fire truck used a Hunter Field during World War II has a new home at the Mighty Eighth museum in Pooler. It has been restored to its World War II condition and will take its place next to the museum's B-17.

This is a picture of my high school hot rod from 1962. The shiny picture is how it looks today. The sad part for me is, I haven't owned it since 1973.

It was so long ago, it seems like it was a dream. However, with my current ride, I'm living a dream that was smoldering in me for many years. Life is good.

Here are pictures of my 28 roadster pickup towing a 34 pickup my friend had purchased in 1983. I still have the roadster pickup, the 34 pickup has been gone for years.

The 33 one ton I have had for about 11 years. It's never been restored, has had one repaint and I use it as a work truck. One picture is hauling my 34 4-door sedan and the other is taking down an old blacksmiths shop framed with Model T and Model A frame rails

The 50 pickup my dad bought new. I took my driving test in it in 1966. Have completly rebuilt it with a 283, automatic transmission, 9" rear-end, and a dropped axel. I drove it to work everyday for several years.

Believe me Paul,,I was knocked out!

Never in a million years did I think that's where the photos Tommy (photographer for Coker) took would end up on the cover of their catalog,,they have hundreds to choose from,,but I am so happy they did!HRP

1st is Clem 1941 1/2 ton with 4 cylinder 9N tractor motor.


Clem's little motor-sorta like half a flathead- 40 HP

And here's Amos, 1934 P/U, 21 stud flathead


I'll work on th picture posting to get them bigger next time. Some beautiful trucks in this thread.

The work truck is a 49 Merc. When I got it it still had it's original knobby tires.







At just 44,000 miles it's a rare bird but that doesn't mean it's babied.

If a '53 really qualifies as "early" (It IS a flathead.) scroll down to the thread with the tag line:"Flathead Block? which one is beast?" A friend posted some shots of my '53 with a 337 "beast" in it. It's onthe 2nd page. If I was smart enough, I'd move them over to this thread.

Hi I just did join the Barn moments a go and It is going to take me some time to get organized and in the fast lane. it's The Beater Trucks that really cought my eye. Up here in the Napa Valley," The FORD BARN steping stone" we have ben calling them " VALLEY TRUCKS". I will work up a photo log of the locales from the wine country a little bit later.

My entry came to me some 35 years ago From Southern California. (San Pedro, Lomita) aera I'll check the specifics a bit lateor. The Builder Started with a very streight original tan paint 40 Pickup. I think he must have ben in the aircraft busyness judging by all the stainless work, craftsmanship and inovations. I will get back with better details later. for now i am going to try with some photographs. Need to figure out the atachement prosses and spell check.

Your "Amos" was an inspiration to me for years while I was finishing my restoration. I had a 8 1/2 X 11 photo over my workbench to keep me on track. Glad to see you on the Barn again, Byron.

Byron, I missed your post from 2/17. Thanks, I'm glad Amos was helpful....and your Merlot is surely just plain gorgeous....if I were chosing a color for one of these today it would be Merlot's color or Washington blue....however the red will do for now. Amos is off the road for a bit...lost 2nd gear a couple months ago. Waiting for my ship to come in (banana boat from Panama apparently) or an infusion of $$ and/or ambition (would be nice to have both but they seldom arrive at the same time!) to haul out the motor and transmission. Probably sometime in the Spring. Got Clem up on stands now too, redoing wiring harness...mostly original and quite a mess...hope to have it done by the barners meet in a couple weeks. I'm still working, lots of hrs, so do most of the work on weekends when I can find the time.

Wow great trucks. In the 80's dad and I saved a old 46 Ford panel truck from an ol wrecking yard. We totally rebuilt the engine from a shop manual. She ran great with that v-8 flathead. We painted it up royal blue. It had the spare tire that mounted in the passenger side of the body. It was one of those great fun projects, then after she was done we missed working on her (that was alot of the fun) We ended up trading it for a newer pick-up. I sure wish I could track her down now. We lived in Tulare Ca. at the time. She was all stock. I'm just hoping she's still out there (and that she's not been rodded) I'd like to know if anyone out there has seen her around.

I saw her just last week down by San Diego stopped beside the freeway just after midnight. Looks like she's being used by a farmer to transport his field hands but I think they were lost, they had stopped a Border Patrol truck to ask directions and some of them had decided to run across country so they wouldn't be late for work. ..B.

It's been sitting for about 40 years. I have taken the wooden top off for now, I want to restore it and put it back on but I kinda like the look without it too.

I really love this two tone paint job, usually just the fenders are painted a different color than the body on 48-52 pickups.

Ok, I'll weigh in here - here's my 41 as recently purchased:





It's a bit of a Mongrel, it has a 9" rear, the x-members been hached out, and it has no engine and box.

It has a later bed whick I am busy narrowing back to the correct width. I am trying to find x-member parts here in the UK but it is proving difficult.

I already have Early ford running gear in 3 cars, so I am thinking of retaining the 9" rear it already has, and setting it up with a 312 Y-block and SROD overdrive box I have been saving for just such a project.

Outwardly it will end up looking pretty stock, except for 15" wheels and radials.

Mart.

As a new member here, this thread looks like a good place to introduce myself and post some pictures of my truck. I've had this truck since 1974 and use it to transport grain and wine grapes.

About a year and a half ago, I finally did something to fix it up after just doing minimal maintenance over the years.

It got a new wood bed, body work and new paint, engine rebuild, transmission and steering box work, and all new wiring.

In the photos you can see before and after.

It is pretty much all original with 59ab engine, a 4 speed truck transmission followed by a 3 speed transmission. No 2-speed rear end.

Here is one of the New Zealand '41/'42 COE's. Saw this one near Nelson about 12yrs ago. Believe it comes from Blenheim in the Sth Island.
There were a number of car & commercial imports during the War era that do not show up on Ford Canada export figures to NZ. They came in for govt. services & agricultural sector.

Bill Richardson also has one of those in his truck museum, but I havent' seen it in a long time. I read that it was imported by the Air Force.

For interests sake, anyone visiting the bottom half of New Zealand who is into trucks, NEEDS to visit that museum - some amazing trucks in there, including one of 3(?) remaining 1940 Dodge Airflow Texaco tankers. There's much more to Invercargill than Burt Munro!

Surfing in the web recently found a photo of a truck, I think is a ford 32´ the curiously of the photo is the inscription on the sides ( Holinger- Weidmann) (quesos y hielo) (Humboldt, provincia de Santa Fe). Why? because I live in the province Santa Fe near to the city of Humboldt. (Holinger- Weidmann) the company was selling cheese and ice. When they bought the truck, the company was send a picture and a negative of this truck to the magazine (mundo ford) with the hope that the manager of the magazine publicate the photo...
I never saw a body like this. I don´t know the truck was fabricate in USA or is a modify truck constructed in Argentina.

Hi Ted,

Finally got time to take some pictures in the cab of my truck. Other than new gauges to replace the old non-working gauges, I haven't done anything to the inside of the cab yet. That's another project.

Taking the entire engine cover off is not easy. So just have pictures of the passenger side panel removed. Have to take the passenger seat out to get it out. Didn't take the panel on the driver's side out, but the view is similar. You can see the 2 shift levers for the 2 transmissions.

Most engine work is done via one of the side access openings, or for the distributor, by lying on my back and reaching up to unbolt the distributor. Once loose, it takes some work to get it out past the 6 blade truck fan.

I've spent several weeks in Invercargill but I thought someone told me the museum wasn't open to the public.

Even though I didn't see the museum, Invercargill is still one of my favorite places. And I really liked Queen's Park.

The Richardson museum is not open to the public but I have been told that they are reasonably responsive to people with a genuine interest.

Of the COEs in NZ I mentioned, one is at the Richardson museum and I am told that the other restored example is still in Blenheim. I don't know what happened to the third. It was complete and in good condition. Apparenly there was another very rusty example but I'm not sure about that.

I think you'd find if you were from the other side of the world and enquired to the right person well in advance you'd have little trouble getting through. The first time I went through there was about '96 and I'm not sure if the Airflow was quite finished at that stage, but Bill Richardson was one of the most genuine people you could ever hope to meet, and gave many a tour personally to clubs and groups. He was a great loss to the community here - as was shown by the procession at his funeral.

I was only recently given a copy of the book that was produced about the museum and I haven't had a chance to read right through it yet, but it's an amazing collection that I hope continues to be well looked after and and added to.

And to totally hijack the thread Invercargill is pretty underrated - Queens Park is one of the best things they did when they set out this city - it's part of a 'green belt' that runs right through the middle of the city to right near where I live that will never be built out.

On a more serious note, please return some of that Ford tin that you've pinched from down here Ted, I'm in desperate need of some of it right about now!

Here are two 34 pickups. One photo is a 'driving' shot from the cab of "the beater" and the other is a photo of a friend's pickup that he finished restoring a couple of years back. It is a NZ pickup that had been off the road since 1957. My friend has owned it 25 years or so.

I have been trying to upload other photos but for some reason they are rejected. These are jpg images well within the file size and no different in that respect to the two that have been accepted.
